How to be a Purpose Disruptor

location The Crown Tavern | 6:30 PM-9 PM Tuesday 16 October 2018 (GMT)

What actions can we take to make the communications industry more purposeful and responsible?

Please join Helen, Rob, Tom and Jonathan at the inaugural ‘Purpose Disruptors’ meet-up. The networking group for people in advertising, media and other creative industries to come together and explore how we might make our industry more purposeful and responsible.

We believe that the area of purpose is here to stay. Just like globalization and digital before it, Purpose will be a transformational force across the business world and the communications industry within it.

But how do I ride the wave of change? How can I persuade my company to be more responsible? How can I influence client work to be more purpose-led? What actions can I take, from where I stand?

Join us if these questions resonate and you believe our industry has the potential, people, skills and scale to make a positive impact on the world around us, and if you want to be more proactive in increasing that impact through your work, and your workplace.

At this first meeting, we’ll share what we’ve been learning about what it takes to make our work more purpose-led, and what we have planned for the Purpose Disruptors group. We love you to join us to share stories, discuss your interest in this area and help shape what you might want from the group.

We look forward to seeing you there
