Purposeful Leadership Masterclass

The Changing Nature of Business

Navigating the Twin Pillars of Purpose and Profit

Thursday 6 June 2019

 

 

Pulse Brands, the Social Business Trust (SBT), Clifford Chance and The British Academy have joined forces to hold a Purposeful Leadership Masterclass on how the commercial sector can navigate the twin pillars of purpose and profit.

An exploration of purpose

The expectation that companies can and should be making a positive difference in society grows stronger and stronger. However, in practical terms, how a company navigates the twin pillars of profit and purpose is hugely challenging. Will it remain viable for companies to maximise profits and then distribute the resulting profit to good causes? Or will organisations need to prioritise championing more worthy causes, but make less profit as a result?

 

The session will be supported by a major study by the British Academy into the need for a fundamental shift in the framework underpinning business practice and public policy towards business. The study includes the five pillars for change: ownership, corporate governance, regulation, taxation and investment.

 

The Masterclass will draw on the expertise of several inspirational business leaders: Professor Colin Mayer (the Saïd Business School), Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein (LGT), Lord Stone of Blackheath, Karl Havers (EY), Cheryl Potter (Permira) and Adele Blakebrough (SBT).

Setting the Context:

The theme ‘the changing nature of business’ will be introduced by our keynote speaker Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein, CEO of LGT Lightstone, who has helped pioneer Impact Investing. He believes that investment and business decisions should be made not only on the basis of financial returns but should also take into account their social and environmental impact.

 

Framework for the Future Economy:

Professor Colin Mayer, of the Saïd Business School, will link the role of purpose, trust and corporate culture. He will share the preliminary work by the British Academy and some early recommendations.

 

Working with Purpose:

This part of the Masterclass will explore how purpose can be used to drive performance. It will be split into two parts:

 

The first session will use the 17 UN SDGs as a framework to explore personal and organisational purpose.

 

The next session will break into a group discussion where attendees will learn from each other about the barriers/drivers navigating the twin pillars of purpose and profit and will include the five levers of change identified by The British Academy.

 

Purposeful Leadership:

This session will explore Pulse’s 12 Purposeful Leadership Principles and how they can be used by leaders to navigate the twin pillars of purpose and profit and drive the necessary change in their organisations.

 

Framework for The Future Corporation:

In this session the audience will have an opportunity to review early recommendations of the British Academy around ownership; governance; measurement and performance; finance and investment; and regulation and law.

 

Panel Discussion:

The panel will be facilitated by Professor Colin Mayer. It will be a discussion with prominent business leaders who have worked in both the commercial and ‘not-for-profit’ worlds: Lord Stone of Blackheath (DIPEx), Cheryl Potter (Permira), Adele Blakebrough (SBT) and Karl Havers (EY). They will consider the challenges of balancing profit and purpose within the modern corporation and the specific obstacles facing the audience and their own organisation.

Setting the Context:

The theme ‘the changing nature of business’ will be introduced by our keynote speaker Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein, CEO of LGT Lightstone, who has helped pioneer Impact Investing.

Framework for the Future Economy:

Professor Colin Mayer, of the Saïd Business School, will link the role of purpose, trust and corporate culture. He will share the preliminary work by the British Academy and some early recommendations.

 

Working with Purpose:

This part of the Masterclass will explore how purpose can be used to drive performance. It will be split into two parts:

 

The first session will use the 17 UN SDGs as a framework to explore personal and organisational purpose.

 

The next session will break into a group discussion where attendees will learn from each other about the barriers/drivers navigating the twin pillars of purpose and profit and will include the five levers of change identified by The British Academy.

 

Purposeful Leadership:

This session will explore Pulse’s 12 Purposeful Leadership Principles and how they can be used by leaders to navigate the twin pillars of purpose and profit and drive the necessary change in their organisations.

 

Framework for The Future Corporation:

In this session the audience will have an opportunity to review early recommendations of the British Academy around ownership; governance; measurement and performance; finance and investment; and regulation and law.

 

Panel Discussion:

The panel will be facilitated by Professor Colin Mayer. It will be a discussion with prominent business leaders who have worked in both the commercial and ‘not-for-profit’ worlds: Lord Stone of Blackheath (DIPEx), Cheryl Potter (Permira), Adele Blakebrough (SBT) and Karl Havers (EY). They will consider the challenges of balancing profit and purpose within the modern corporation and the specific obstacles facing the audience and their own organisation.

An exploration of purpose

Pulse Brands, the Social Business Trust (SBT), Clifford Chance and The British Academy have joined forces to hold a Purposeful Leadership Masterclass on how the commercial sector can navigate the twin pillars of purpose and profit.

The expectation that companies can and should be making a positive difference in society grows stronger and stronger. However, in practical terms, how a company navigates the twin pillars of profit and purpose is hugely challenging. Will it remain viable for companies to maximise profits and then distribute the resulting profit to good causes? Or will organisations need to prioritise championing more worthy causes, but make less profit as a result?

 

The session will be supported by a major study by the British Academy into the need for a fundamental shift in the framework underpinning business practice and public policy towards business. The study includes the five pillars for change: ownership, corporate governance, regulation, taxation and investment.

 

The Masterclass will draw on the expertise of several inspirational business leaders: Professor Colin Mayer (the Saïd Business School), Prince Max von und zu Liechtenstein (LGT), Lord Stone of Blackheath, Karl Havers (EY), Cheryl Potter (Permira) and Adele Blakebrough (SBT).
