Summit to explore power of business on purpose


The 2019 Shared Value Summit Asia Pacific 18-19 June in Sydney, supported by major partners IAG and NAB, will explore the theme of Business on Purpose.

Amidst a global climate of rapid change and uncertainty, in the Asia Pacific – the world’s fastest-growing region – Business on Purpose conveys optimism and intention. Business on Purpose also underscores the potential power and role of business as a key influencer and leader in transforming industries and society to meet the complex and pressing challenges we face today.

“It’s important for companies and the community to recognise the powerful outcomes that are possible when companies pursue business on purpose with a shared value approach to solving social issues while increasing profits,” Helen Steel, CEO of the Shared Value Project said.

The 2019 Summit will provide an opportunity for senior representatives and practitioners from the Asia Pacific’s leading companies to hear from a range of international business and thought leaders who will provide the knowledge, tools and inspiration needed to create successful shared value initiatives. The summit will also include interactive sessions and a second day of Shared Value learning experiences.

The Summit is attended by 250-300 c-suite executives, board members, strategists and policymakers of some of Australia and the region’s leading companies, senior government leaders as well as academics and non-profit leaders, consulting companies and representatives from the business media.
