Workshops will enable you to focus on what you can do within your own life and work to help build a sustainable future for people and the planet.  Facilitators will incorporate creative approaches to help you to ...

  • Focus on your own self-awareness and personal growth (doing the inner work to achieve the outer change)

  • Develop your business or organisation (working differently to promote a just, equitable, and environmentally sustainable world)

  • Understand the bigger picture (valuing interdependence and interconnectedness and being aware of our impact and how to use it for good)

Who is it for?


  • People in positions of leadership within businesses, organisations and communities

  • Consultants, facilitators and trainers in the leadership and organisational development fields

  • Changemakers – people who care about the future and want to take action

  • People who want to understand why a different type of leadership is required to generate positive change 

  • People who want to meet and connect with others who have an interest in leadership for a better world


We're running this conference in partnership with other organisations and leadership development professionals who want to generate positive change in the world. We fundamentally believe that we can make more of a difference when we collaborate with others than when we work alone, and we hope that this exciting and inspiring day will  be the first step in identifying and bringing together a movement of people and organisations who want to create a better future for people and the planet through enlightened, compassionate, collaborative leadership.
