National Network Meeting

Sep 12, 2017

VENUE: Ulster Bank, George’s Quay, Dublin 2

TIME: 10.15-12.30

Sustainability: transformation, innovation, collaboration

In an increasingly challenging environment, today’s leading business must be agile and innovation-driven. But how does a responsible business navigate business transformation?

To support our members in this challenge, Business in the Community is developing a partnership with the Centre for Business and Society (CeBaS) at the Smurfit Business School, University College Dublin. Partnership is a key goal within the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Q3 network meeting will explore how members can leverage the international expertise of CeBaS to collaborate for responsible and sustainable approaches to transformation.

The meeting will feature a number of expert speakers on innovation and business transformation, including Prof. Séamas Kelly, Professor of Organisation, Technology and Society at UCD and Prof. Andy Prothero, Professor of Business and Society at UCD. Attendees will also have the opportunity to participate in roundtables with CeBaS members with expertise in a variety of areas including sustainable supply chain, gender diversity, social inclusion and sustainability reporting.

The meeting is an exciting opportunity for members to discuss with leading international experts the latest thinking and trends on responsible business; explore the future challenges in their sector; and consider what it means to be a responsible business in a rapidly changing environment.

Please feel free to extend this invitation to colleagues, particularly those in the area of innovation and business transformation, and those interested in the work of the CeBaS and the Smurfit Business School.

To reserve your place, please RSVP to Lorraine Wall at events@bitc.ie by Monday, 28th August.
