About the Social impact for business event series
The business community is increasingly aware of its power and responsibility to help solve the world’s many complex challenges. Leaders around the world are speaking out about the need for responsible business practices, driven by purpose along with profit. While many say they are committing to making a difference, very few have a plan for making it happen.
NPC is launching a series of breakfast events on Social impact for business, to help organisations go from acknowledging responsibility to achieving greater impact. In the first of this series, we’ll be focusing specifically on developing effective strategies for impact. Later in the series we’ll be exploring best practice approaches to measuring, reporting and communicating impact.
About event 1: Social impact strategy for business
Aimed at businesses and anyone interested in corporate social impact, this breakfast event will take a look at the state of sector, how responsible business practices have evolved and where we are today. We’ll take a broad view of the landscape as well as reflecting on specific examples of organisations whose strategies are driving positive social change. We’ll also hear from strategy experts at NPC who will share our latest thinking on how to set ambitious impact targets, and develop roadmaps for getting there.
If you can’t make this event but are interested in future events in the series please email Alex on events@thinkNPC.org

This is a turbulent time for the voluntary sector meaning it is more important than ever that charitable funding is spent as effectively as possible and that corporate funders understand the impact their donations have.
