‘In Business for Good’ is a free virtual summit, which is being held next week (24-28 June). Each year the summit aims to enable small organisations to showcase and share good practice on a particular theme. This year’s summit will provide practical advice and peer support for small business owners and staff on how to focus on wellbeing with the aim of “doing good business and staying in business for good”. It will explore what small firms are doing and what more they can do to benefit their staff, customers and wider communities.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Earl Howe, Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Quality;
- Dame Carol Black from the Department of Health;
- Mike Cherry from the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB);
- Stephen Bevan from the Work Foundation.
Podcast interviews with wellbeing experts and small business owners will be featured throughout the week. Before, during and after there will be discussion and exchange through social media. Simply register for the summit then access the internet during summit week to listen to the interviews. You can also join the discussions on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
