Academic Conference 2016
In September 2016, we co-hosted an international academic conference with London
Business School and the LBS Leadership Institute. The aim of the conference was to explore
the impact on business, of having a purpose that serves society.
The academic committee was chaired by Harvard Business School Professor, Rebecca
Henderson, and the conference was witness to 19 papers being presented.
A summary of the event can be found here.
