For this year's B Corp Summit we are carefully crafting a fully facilitated program that ensures that when you join the summit, you take away more than what you’re looking for.
The program will be highly interactive, creative and fit the wishes of small companies and multinationals. Whether you come to make concrete plans and learn from other B Corps, you are looking to expand your business, transform your sector together or you are devoted to work together with other B Corps to make sure we make the SDGs a reality, this summit will be for you.
DAY 1 | SEPTEMBER 23RD
09.00 - 17.30hr (B Night 19.30 - 22.00)
We will kick-off the day collectively, working on a challenge together and enjoy a world-class keynote by Patagonia’s Rick Ridgeway.
During a wide range of workshops and facilitated open spaces we will share experiences, learn skills to help us be succesfull as B Corps, work on concrete cases and create business opportunities together.
In response to popular demand we will run a focussed set of workshops for those that want to know more about certifying as a B Corp:
The Impact Assessment
What could B Corp mean for your business
How B Corp affects our society and planet
Sustainable growth and financing
You will get concrete tools to transform your business, so you are ready to start!
A keynote by author, advisor and serial entrepreneur John Elkington will inspire us to take action together.
The day ends with the B Night, where B Corps welcome you at their place to celebrate. (The B Night is optional, please register for the B Night separately).
DAY 2 | SEPTEMBER 24TH
09.00 - 19.30hr
On day two we will get to work on the challenge of transforming the operating principles of business into sustainability and inclusivity.
Inspiring leaders like B Corp cofounder Jay Coen Gilbert and Innocent drink's Rozanne Davis and Douglas Lamont will share their experiences.
During the interactive program with workshops, open spaces and creative collaboration we work together on making this transformation happen and growing the B economy. We work on cases, learn from best practices and address the SDGs together. And there will be a Donors' Debate on how do we fund the transition to a sustainable form of capitalism.
Networking is facilitated throughout both days and of course we will end the Summit together, with drinks and a clear insight in our impact the last two days.
