Join Cornwall Wildlife Trust on Friday 27th January 2017 for a business networking breakfast with a difference, in partnership with University of Exeter Business School. With a focus on CSR, and including case studies from local businesses working with nature on the ground, we hope you will be inspired for the New Year ahead.

Book now at Eventbrite, limited places available. 

You will hear from Trust wildlife experts about how to incorporate nature into your business for the benefit of people and the environment. We will also be joined by local businesses who will share their ethos of sustainability to encourage enhancement of nature into their core business, which leads to positive profits.

As well as a fantastic opportunity to network with like-minded companies, there will also be a keynote talk from serial entrepreneur, Louis Hurst. Louis is a pioneer of conscious capitalism and believes ‘a business that makes just money, is a poor business’.

In his talk, Louis will demonstrate that taking a holistic and ethical approach to business planning will have a positive effect on profitability, people
retention, and business longevity.

The event will be running from 8am to 11.30am and is FREE to attend.
