A partnership event with The Financial Services Forum and feat. speakers from TSB Bank and Wealthify alongside Lansons
If we all accept the importance of Purpose – to customers, employees, and shareholders; to business success; and to sleeping well at night - why are so many organisations still struggling to articulate, then live theirs?
While the pandemic has undoubtedly accelerated the demand for organisations to a) have a purpose beyond profit and b) live that purpose through authentic actions – many are still stuck at first base. Or worse – they’re purpose-washing.
In 'Translating Purpose into a "Blueprint" for Positive Action', Lansons' Head of Marketing Communications Claire Southeard hosts Wealthify CMO, Sally Allen, and TSB Bank Corporate Affairs Director, George Gordon.
In this session, we'll hear from those in the Financial Services sector, who are successfully living their organisations’ purpose through a clear blueprint of action. They are claiming their purpose by living by it. This is an FSF and Lansons partner event, open to non FSF members.
