As environmental and social change champions, soulpepper believes in the B Corp mission of using business as a force for good. That’s why we’re excited to be part of the 2016 B Corp Leadership Development Conference, May 19 in Vancouver.
This full-day experience is an opportunity to share and learn together to as a way to deepen leadership skills and effectiveness. This conference will leave you inspired and engaged, and with the tangible skills and ideas you can immediately apply in your own workplace. Join other thought leaders and accelerate your impact through networking, collaboration and the sharing of best practices.
This event includes inspirational keynote speakers, breakout sessions, an “Unconference” and complimentary entrance to the soul swinging after party. (Organized by the peeps at soulpepper, natch!)
Here’s a small taste of what you can expect:
HOW INDIVIDUAL MISSIONS AND COLLECTIVE ACTION CHANGED THE WAY WE DO BUSINESS

COMMUNICATING INCOME – COMPELLING STORIES THAT BUILD YOUR BRAND

Learn from the creative and marketing experts how to wear your socially conscious badge well and tell the story of how you, your colleagues and businesses are making a difference, in a way that makes people listen.
DEMONTRATING ROI – EVERYONE WANTS TO RULE THE WORLD
B Corps talk a lot about the ROI. It’s what will take the movement beyond the realm of purpose-driven entrepreneurs and capture the attention of the mainstream business community. This panel’s guests will discuss how ROI drives the movement, and what it looks like for employee engagement, brand trust, supply chain value and social impact KPIs. Points that arise will form the basis of the workshop to come up with ways to grow the movement.
BUILDING A CONNECTED TEAM OF ADVOCATES
Companies that ooze with culture have the best chance for success. However, building a team and culture that’s so powerful it extends to your customers and partners is no easy feat. This panel of experts will teach you how to build a connected team, and workshop ways to bring this to your own organizations.
