An Introduction to B-Corp

BCI Workshop

15th Mar 2022




Online via Zoom

Together, we can be a force for good.

Being a B Corp means that you are honestly committed to creating real environmental and societal benefits.

People want to work for, buy from, and invest in businesses they believe in. The B Corp Certification is a powerful way to build trust and value for your organisation.

72% of the UK public think businesses should have a legal responsibility to the planet and people, alongside their profit aspirations.

Be the change by joining us to find out how you can become a B Corp business.

Expect informative talks, valuable networking opportunities and inspiring discussions to further support your ability to discover, collaborate and innovate.

Join Andy Hawkins from Business on Purpose via Zoom at 9am on Tuesday 15th March as he talks you through what it means to be B-Corp and what to expect from the certification process. There will be time for questions during the session.

He’ll also be joined by Ryan Webb and Nick Dean who are at different stages of the process with their own businesses, and are keen to share their experiences.
