Social Enterprise Scotland - Accelerating business with purpose
2pm - 5pm
This is an in-person event, in partnership with SCDI, at Crossbaskets Castle, Glasgow
This is a free event for SES members, SCDI members and members of Productivity Club Scotland.
SCDI recently published the report Now is the time for purpose which has had a huge impact across Scotland.
This seminar follows on from that report by answering the following questions:
- Why is purpose essential to the future economy?
- How does purpose drive growth?
- How do you define and communicate a powerful purpose?
- How does purpose give you competitive advantage?
- How does purpose help recruit and retain staff?
It will feature key insights from successful organisations, adding detail to the academic research which underpins it. Starting with an overview of purpose-led strategy, it will finish with precise nuggets on how every business can precisely define its purpose and gain both market advantage and internal alignment and acceleration from it.
