UK for Good - 'Business for Good Festival 2023'

Sherrington Associates Managing Director Rob McKay will be speaking at the 'Business for Good Festival' on February 2nd at Sykes Cottages HQ, Chester.

Gone are the days of short-term profit for shareholders at any cost; forward-thinking business leaders grow their business on purpose, for people, the planet and prosperity. Purposeful business is at the heart of UK for Good's membership base and in February 2023, Rob will talk to members about something that's very close to Sherrington's heart... values.

It might sounds strange to a room full of climate-conscious leaders to suggest that the biggest threats to our world are in fact not climate change, biodiversity loss or pollution. These things are actually just symptoms of the real root-cause problem... leadership failure. Drawing on some of the work of Richard Barrett, founder of the Barrett Values Centre, Rob will discuss how values are the foundation of all business outcomes, positive and negative, and how if we are to prevent ecosystem collapse within our lifetimes, leadership needs to align it's values with those of a sustainable society.

The Business for Good Festival has been curated to bring you leading inspiring speakers and workshops designed to enhance your better business journey. You'll meet like-minded business leaders, learn from each other, and be able to explore opportunities for collaboration over a networking lunch. Never before has there been such a responsibility and opportunity for businesses to shape a better future for GOOD.
