According to his latest book "The Next Sustainability Wave: Building Boardroom Buy-In", over 99% of companies in Europe, Canada and the US are small and medium sized enterprises (SMEs) with fewer than 500 employees. More than 75% of them have fewer than five employees. They have neither the money, resources, time, or interest to tell the world their sustainability stories, even if they are exemplary.

After an evening with Bob Willard you will understand the emerging drivers of business sustainability - a compelling business case, and the perfect storm of market forces ranging from climate change to rising stakeholder demands - and access resources to improve your business. This event is not to be missed by any business professional that is concerned about the world we live in and eager to address the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
