Join us for an inspiring and action-focused half-day event on how business, government and civil society are collaborating to deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.

Timed to coincide with the UN General Assembly Week, our annual event has become a popular, high-energy gathering that brings together a select group of around 100 senior professionals from business and the international development community.

We recognise the power of bringing together the right people in a focused and action-oriented way. That is why our audience is highly curated, and why the sessions are designed to enable practical, deep-dive conversations and meaningful relationship building.

Last year, 84% of participants surveyed said they made a valuable connection, 95% said they learnt something valuable for their work, and 90% said they would recommend it to a colleague.

Every year, the event is oversubscribed. Register now to secure your place!

EVENT AGENDA

Through inspiring keynotes and an incisive panel discussion, we will explore the theme of rethinking collaboration for the Sustainable Development Goals.

We will then gather people in a series of intimate private working lunch sessions to drill down on questions, such as:

  • How can business and donors partner effectively to deliver the SDGs?
  • How can businesses support those most vulnerable through the transition to the future of work?
  • How can we embed purpose authentically into business?
  • How can business address gender equality challenges through business aware practices?
  • What can large businesses do to strengthen micro, small and medium enterprise eco-systems in frontier markets?
  • How can consumer goods companies harness technology to most effectively tackle modern slavery in their global supply chains?
