Co-creating value for the common good, University of Northampton’s Centre for Sustainable Business Practices

University of Northampton Centre for Sustainable Business Practices looking at opportunities to build back better!

JAMES SAUNDERS WATSON, HM Lord-Lieutenant of Northamptonshire, invites business, charity, civic & academic leaders to discuss the latest trends and thinking in ‘stakeholder capitalism’ through strategic cross-sector social partnerships.

As the State provides less, who will provide more? How can it be done effectively and efficiently? And in a way that is scalable – drawing on the skills, energies and resources of citizens, charities as well as business to drive social change with high impact, and thus create a better community – and business environment – for all?

Keynote speakers:

* Dr M. MAY SEITANIDI (FRSA) is a leading authority on cross sector partnerships and the co-author of Social Partnerships and Responsible Business (2014) and Creating Value in Nonprofit-Business Collaborations: New Thinking and Practice (2014) – helping people, organisations and societies pursue social good.

* JOHN NICKSON is one of Britain’s most experienced fundraisers – under his leadership the Tate raised £250m. He is the author of Giving is Good for You: Why Britain Should Be Bothered and Do More (2013) and Our Common Good: If The State Provides Less, Who Will Provide More? (2017).

The two speakers will set the scene, with international, national as well as local examples, and plenty of time for discussion & debate in an important and thought-provoking session that will inspire you to take action – with real purpose and for true impact!
