All businesses have the potential to be ‘good businesses’ – businesses that have a positive impact on people and planet, that make a difference at the same time as making a profit.
This workshop is for individuals with a start-up idea, and for more established businesses, who want to explore how to create (or pivot) a business that really makes a difference to the planet, the local community, the wider global community, or all three!
We’ll look at different ways to create positive impact, and how to incorporate doing good stuff into your business model.
Facilitator: Jen Gale
