About this event

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.

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

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

Future Leap offers a spacious, covid-compliant event space with MHVR air conditioning units which take out old air and bring new air in. We also have reduced our capacity so you can be mindful of each other’s space. We ask all physical attendees to take a lateral flow test before arriving.

If you purchase a ticket to this event and it moves online-only due to covid-19, you will be welcome to a full refund, a partial refund and online attendance, or a ticket swap at your discretion.
