FUTURE OF BUSINESS
A Forum for Business Transformation Thought Leadership Growing our Economy Collaboration Opportunity
Wednesday 6th October 2021
On Wednesday 6th October Future of Business invites you to participate in a discussion on the future of corporate social responsibility. Hear Tim Jones speaking about his work with organisations on B Corp certification.
What is a B Corp you ask? Certified B Corporations have proven their ability to balance purpose and profit, making decisions that create positive impacts across employees, customers, suppliers, community, and the environment. Tim’s own business, Grow Good, is one of New Zealand’s founding B Corps and he has been a B Corp Ambassador in New Zealand since 2015.
Tim is a global expert in business for good, organisational purpose and creating impact led organisations. He regularly works with organisations in the US, Europe, Australia and New Zealand including Meridian Energy, The Co-Operative Bank, The NZ Defence Force, The Chia Sisters, Bivouac Outdoors and Cookie Time. More recently he’s been co-teaching the University of Canterbury MBA Programme “Creating Impact-led Enterprises”.
Join us as we discuss purpose-fuelled performance, and the role it plays in building successful careers and organisations. It is the Future of Business.
Wednesday 3rd November 2021
On Wednesday 3rd November, Roseann will be leading the session for Future of Business focusing on an understanding of change in order to communicate and manage it in a believable way.
We will examine the stages people and organisations go through in the change journey. Emphasis will be given on how to frame change in order to get people to take action as this is a stumbling block for many organisations.
With over forty-five as an educator, Roseann Gedye is the founder of her own communication advisory service known as Roseann’s Principles Limited. For the last twenty years, Roseann has been a sought after consultant in the industry in the areas of communication, leadership, change, motivation, influencing and persuading. Roseann has written and presented a number of communication and leadership programmes for organisations such as Chorus, Foodstuffs, Fisher & Paykel Healthcare, JA Russell and Ballance Fertilisers, to name a few.
Tickets on sale soon.
What is Future of Business?
Started in 2019 by Peter McKaskell, Future of Business began by bringing together Canterbury business leaders and executives for networking and sharing of ideas. Peter and the founding members could see the seeds of greatness and innovation within our business community and economy. We have all seen huge amounts invested in Canterbury over the last 10 years and one of the things it has given us is a platform to grow world leading businesses in our own “backyard”. Peter’s vision: a forum where leaders can share ideas, brainstorm, and collaborate. To provide an encouraging environment that supports economic growth for our businesses, our community and our region.
However, after news of a serious health challenge, Peter put the events on ice.
2020 has brought its own challenges; lockdowns; a first wave of redundancies; more expected and a strange new normal that is anything but normal.
Now more than ever is the time to kickstart Future of Business events. Wherever possible, events will be face to face, networking, speakers and panel discussions.
So, whether you are pivoting, transforming, kickstarting or simply keen to share ideas with like-minded business-people, Future of Business is the place for you.
Future of Business is not membership-based but thrives on repeat attendance. Join us for our next event (or two) and see for yourself how you can take part in the future of business in Canterbury.
