Henley Summit: The transformative power of sustainability

Join the Henley Summit on the topic ‘The transformative power of sustainability’ on Thursday 6 May 2021!

The Henley Summit finds its origins in our alumni community and their strong appetite for a collaborative academic-led approach to tackling critical business issues. Throughout the last 12 months our alumni have worked through a series of Henley Challenges to strengthen their businesses and ventures, from Customer Centricity and Leading Change to Global Talent Transformation.

Harnessing this momentum, we designed the Henley Summit to build on this foundation of online learning to become our premiere online conference. Each year we aim to draw on the global expertise found at Henley and its international community of academics, alumni, and supporters to provide insight on the most crucial issues that face businesses globally.

Our 2021 Summit is on  ‘The transformative power of sustainability, and it will showcase the business case for sustainability. We propose that sustainability is far more than a moral cause but an essential part of all business. This full-day online conference will focus on three of the primary business areas affected by sustainability: People, Finance and Environment.

Our questions:

  • How does sustainability affect the way your organisation interacts with its people?
  • How can a sustainable agenda affect the financial situation of your organisation?
  • How do you adapt policy and process to move your organisation closer to environmental sustainability?

The Henley Summit will be delivered (via Zoom) as a combination of different interactive elements from keynote presentations to panel Q&Aโ€™s and more. We will highlight prominent industry pioneers and leaders, and equip you with the skills to evaluate you and your organisationโ€™s approach to sustainability. โ€“
