A different kind of conference on May 8-9 2012 in London

I don’t know about you, but I am tired of PowerPoint.

And I think we’ve all had enough of conferences where you get talked at for 30 minutes, have 5 mins of interesting debate and questions, and then it’s onto more of the same.

At Ethical Corporation, we know that old model is broken.

So we’re fixing it for our conferences in 2012.

Our big annual conference, the Responsible Business Summit, has been running since 2002.

So it seems like a great place to cut out the dull PowerPoints and discussion of employee numbers and carbon targets, and get right into the meat of managing CR into large businesses and medium size firms alike.

We’re making sure the event features minimal (and I mean minimal) speaking time in 2012, and top notch moderators primed to ask the tough questions and facilitate proper debate and discussion.

We’d like speakers to talk for no more than 5-10 minutes, and that’s the aim. That’s what will happen at the conference.
