Heard about The Good Business Festival?
Had your interest peaked but not sure what it's really all about? Wondering whether it will be a good use of your time?
Here 7 reasons why you should put The Good Business Festival in your diary:
It's tackling the big issues
TGBF is the world's largest responsible business festival. It's going to be three days of events that look at powerful ideas and transformational change. Not future change but change right now.
A session on Horizon Scanning will see experts from NESTA, Deloitte and the British Academy predict the trends of tomorrow. There will be debates around creative capitalism, change for good and the circular economy. And if you want to know what the future of work will look like or how we can end the disability inequality crisis – that’s all on the agenda too.
Check out the full schedule
Leaders from industry, academia, business, media, and music. Trailblazers that have been there and done it and troublemakers that will be there and do what's next.
Expect to hear from brands like Innocent, Arbonne and Twipes, Joe Illes from The Ellen MacArthur Foundation, musician Louis VI, Paralympian Hannah Cockcroft, Kelly Beaver from Ipsos Mori, Felicia Odamtten, founder of The Black Economists Network, Jude Kelly, CEO and founder of The WOW Foundation and Andrew Sandoz, CCO at Deloitte.
A stellar line-up delivering more than 70 talks, panel discussions and workshops.
It's right on your doorstep
All that without even leaving Liverpool? No costly travel, no random hotel stays, no restaurant roulette in a strange city. Sleep in your own bed, eat at your favourite restaurants and enjoy one of the best business festivals in the world right here. And not just in a soulless convention centre, in interesting venues like The British Music Experience and Liverpool Town Hall and CONTENT. Seems too good to pass up.
When was the last time you met a room full of interesting new people in person? It feels like an age since we could start new conversations, meet fresh contacts… and often discover what a really small world it is. Around 4000 festival-goers are expected and there will be loads of opportunities to debate, hear different opinions and network. If you’re ready to get back out there TGBF could be perfect timing.
A chance to join the Gather team
Over three days TGBF will be holding the Small Business Hub, with a series of breakfast drop-in events, and ‘business clinics’. The Gather team will be there to connect the talent of tomorrow with professionals within the DCT industry. Get in touch at [email protected] if you'd like to get involved and meet the next generation of talent.
After Hours events
Even more chances to catch up with old friends, new faces, speakers and collaborators at the after-hours events. Expect mini-film festivals, a comedy night and a closing night bash at EVOL.
It's incredible value
A day pass for a festival with this number of sessions and this calibre of speakers would usually set you back £150+ but to attend the GBF it’s just a minimum donation of £10. And all ticket proceeds go to LCR Cares, the Metro Mayor's charitable fund supporting community and voluntary organisations across Liverpool City Region.
When: 22-24 March 2022
