Global leaders focus on shared value

If you followed the conversation from the AICD Summit last week, you would have noticed a recurring theme; an emphasis on the role companies play in society.

From Ken Henry AC, Chair of NAB and 2017 Shared Value Champion, to Pru Bennett from BlackRock, a speaker at our upcoming Summit, leader after leader outlined cases for companies to consider their social impact; many with clear cases for shared value.

It continues a conversation started by the leader of the world’s largest investment firm, BlackRock Chairman and CEO Larry Fink, who called for business to serve a social purpose - or miss out on investment.

So how can your company serve a greater social purpose? How can you play a role in helping solve some of our region's biggest social issues?

Find out on 18 April at the 2018 Shared Value Summit Asia Pacific in Sydney.
