Impact Summit

Held at SWG3 on Wednesday 15th May, Impact Summit is an annual event that brings together some of the brightest minds of our time to discuss tackling global challenges!

Impact Summit

About Impact Summit

Over three stages, we’re giving a platform to the people shaking things up, changing the status quo, and using purpose-driven business models as a means of tackling global challenges.

Join us to find inspiration, discuss ideas and connect with the people who are not only sharing in this vision, but bringing it to life.

We’ll be exploring three key themes:

A Sustainable Future
Sustainability and environmental considerations are fundamental for businesses to prosper in the long term. With the global movement towards conscious consumerism gaining huge momentum, brands whose offerings are aligned with the mindset of the public are affirming their presence in the market for the foreseeable future.

Tech for Good
Technology has the potential to become one of the most effective and widespread forces for good we have ever seen. In a few short decades, the technology boom has revolutionised the way we live. Now, even slow-moving legacy sectors and old methods are giving way to agile, accessible, tech-based solutions that offer convenience and speed like we’ve never seen before.

People Behind the Purpose
A new working mindset has been sparked across the generations; people want to pursue more meaningful work, have more freedom, and apply their expertise to companies that share their values. Provided with the the right environment and tools, your team has the power to drive forward innovation and really deliver on the overall purpose of the business.
