Over the past three and a half years or so, I have been lucky enough to attend a number of conferences focusing on organizational sustainability. These have included sectors such as municipalities, academia, for profit entities and a combination of all of these. And I always leave with new ideas, enhanced enthusiasm for the work SWR does, and some great new connections.
The Conference Board of Canada is hosting Business [Un]Usual: Profit from Purpose next week, and I am thrilled to be there for part of this event. The conference recognizes that the world is changing fast and business is facing new demands from rapidly evolving technologies, while social, environmental and political issues are affecting bottom-lines. The speakers, sessions and panels will be helping business understand this and help to provide strategies for doing business [Un]Usual in this new reality.
With topics such as The Transition to a Low Carbon Energy Future, The Transition to a Low Carbon Energy Future and Embedding Sustainability into Corporate Governance, this promises to be a great conference!
If you are available to join this event, it could be very worth your while. Learn more about the conference, and maybe I will see you there.
