Moderated by Shane Allison, Senior Account Director, Sefiani Communications
We are delighted to invite you to join us at the next AICC Young Business Forum event for a night of networking and a fascinating moderated panel discussion on finding the appropriate balance between profit and purpose for corporate organisations.
On the 19th of March last year, Immigration Minister Peter Dutton called for companies to ‘stick to your knitting’ and stay away from the marriage equality debate. But in the 21st century, it is increasingly difficult to define what a company’s ‘knitting’ is, as management and boards struggle to balance the needs of activist customers, increasingly active regulators, and the demands of shareholders.
While finding the balance, take the opportunity to have a drink, network and expand your personal and professional network.
Adam helps clients understand and address the environmental, social and governance expectations of government, capital markets and the broader community.
