What happened 2018? 

In April 2018, selected CEOs, visionaries and public leaders came together to share their insights on the opportunities and paradigm shifts in leadership, partnership and business as usual. 


This was  informed by the preliminary findings from the second Leaders on Purpose CEO Study, best practices, expert and thought leader input and the Sustainable Development Goals 2030.

More importantly, together we co-create pathways to move the needle for driving organisational, societal and environmental prosperity to scale impact for a more just and sustainable world.
