    Organisations today must constantly evolve to stay ahead. So how do we successfully embed change throughout an organisation?

    In this webinar, Angela explores the link between an organisation’s purpose, culture and reputation. Participants learn about how people experience change and what organisations can do to support their people, with a particular focus on the non-rational side of change. Angela grounds the session in the Four Rooms of Change® methodology, using real life examples to illustrate key points. Participants will walk away with a new understanding of transformational change and practical tips on how to continually evolve while embedding change in their organisations

    Philanthropy is dead. No longer is it expected or acceptable for a business to offset or outsource doing good.

    ICON invites you to an exclusive dinner and discussion among senior B2B professionals where we ask: how can the Marketing, Communications, Sales and Business Development community play a role in driving the ESG agenda in business?

    Sustainability, ESG (environmental, social and governance), reporting, responsible business, purpose, the end of capital supremacy… business thinking today is riddled with such concepts that share one common thread: the undeniable responsibility of companies for considering their impact on the community and the planet.

    Over the course of the evening, we will hear:

    • How ESG directly affects a CMO’s department, function and KPIs
    • How it can empower BD teams to unlock conversations with clients
    • Case studies to illustrate the risk and opportunities presented by ESG
    • Practical ideas for next steps that leaders can immediately take to act differently

    How can ESG be embedded in all operations and strategic initiatives of a business? Are senior Marketing, Communications, Sales and BD professionals fully embracing this future-thinking approach and getting all the value that they can from ESG?  

    Speakers:
