Concurrent Workshops (Register in advance here)

  • Workshop 1: Programmes for Purpose: Following Corporate Citizenship’s recent research into Four Routes to Impact, join us to discuss what it means to integrate your community investment programme across your business to have greater impact. Members will be presented with case studies and consider what steps they can take in working towards leveraging internal resources to adopt a whole-business approach to impact.
  • Workshop 2: The Evolution of CCI in a Turbulent World: Join us as we unpick the impacts of three key megatrends that are likely to shape the future of CCI in a turbulent world. In this workshop members will ask themselves what a future characterised by populism, climate chaos & AI could mean for business, and focus on how corporates can evolve to maximise their social impact.
  • Workshop 3: From Excel tables to emerging tech platforms: How you can best manage community data regardless of budget. This session will provide attendees with practical ideas, tips and tools for how to make community data management easier. We will reveal the results of the recent LBG survey on member adoption of data platforms, hear from LBG members about their experiences in community data management, and discuss best practices to help members get the most out of their data.
