This is really exciting :-)
On 19 February Better Place and Purpose Makers are proudly co-hosting the conference Why We Love Companies With Purpose during Social Media Week (18-22 February 2013). Social Media Week is a global phenomenon and unfolds in 10 cities worldwide during that one week in February and it’s packed with cool events all week.
Why We Love Companies With Purpose is organized into four sessions. Each of which features 3 powerful and inspiring talks, lasts 90 minutes and can be attended independently of each other at the Better Place Center in Hellerup, Copenhagen. You’re also more than welcome to attend all 4 sessions.
So why do we organize this conference? At Purpose Makers we’re united by the belief that the future belongs to purpose-driven companies and organizations. They will have strong cultures, engaged and happy employees and enthusiastic customers, patients, citizens and users. They’re here to change the world. This conference will gather some of the best and most inspiring purpose-driven minds and our ambition is that the audience will feel inspired, empowered and ignited to go out and start their own revolution.
