Keynote Speech:

Is Global Mobility Sustainable?

When so many people are reassessing the way that they live, and employees are looking for a more flexible and more sustainable way of working and travelling, how can global mobility, a division of business that is fundamentally about expansion and globalization justify what it does?

With climate change now undisputed and the pace of change and technological advances unprecedented, there are myriad challenges for businesses. No matter what size business or wherever you are on the planet, Stephanie will talk through some of the things you can do when you Think Global and Act Local.

  • How can you combine commercial success with social enterprise?
  • How can you minimize environmental impact and ensure that your organization is making a positive contribution?
  • How can you ensure that your organization is developing talent from a diverse pool?
