Volans’ latest report Breakthrough: Business Leaders, Market Revolutions, highlights three scenarios ahead – breakdown, change-as-usual and breakthrough. It calls upon business leaders to challenge current norms and approaches to capitalism and corporate responsibility.
Join us to learn why system change is needed in tackling social and environmental challenges and the critical role to be played by the corporate sector in driving this change. During this webinar we will discuss the opportunities for business to innovate and contribute to finding solutions, spotlighting some of the inherent challenges but also examples of where this breakthrough activity is happening.
Joining us for this discussion is Amy Birchall, Director, Client Services at Volans & Charmian Love, Co-Founder and Director of Volans. Based in the UK, Volans drives market-based solutions to the future’s greatest challenges by generating thought leadership, convening strategic conversations and developing the programs and processes that support organizational and culture change. Volans is also currently working on a joint report with SiG and KPMG on the state of corporate social innovation in Canada.
