Transforming our impact
CCA’S 2nd mission is “Transforming our Impact” – By developing our practice we provide clients (individuals, leaders and their teams) with the agency to step into our necessary leadership role as we engage more fully with the climate and ecological emergency.
How can we do this? One way is to hear from influential thought leaders and practitioners who are pioneering new techniques and approaches which are influencing leaders and organisations to accelerate their climate action.
Join us to hear from Halla Tomasdottir, CEO of The B team. The B Team is a global NGO co-founded by Sir Richard Branson and Jochen Zeitz, which advocates for business practices that are more centered on humanity and the climate. You can learn more here https://bteam.org/
Halla will share The B Team “playbook” which they are launching for use by leaders and organisations globally to accelerate business action towards an inclusive economy by 2030 that safeguards our natural environment and ensures a sustainable, equitable and prosperous future for all. The playbook has been developed with input from top global leaders she is keen for us to use them too!
She will make the case that a new approach to leadership is needed to catalyze fundamental systems change. Successful stewardship of our businesses can, and must, exist in alignment with responsible stewardship of our communities and our planet.
The format of this first workshop with Halla will be a ‘fireside chat’ followed by Q&A with you.
