RSM Leadership Summit 2017: Business - a force for positive change

Should companies investigate societal and ecological returns on investments just as they’ve done with financial models? At the RSM Leadership Summit, you can explore how the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals can be a useful support of the direction companies and business plans could take towards positive change while staying profitable at the same time.

Join business executives, alumni, students and academics to discover how you can steer your business to be a force for positive change in the world, share how you are contributing and become inspired by others during presentations and roundtable discussions at 2017’s Summit.

Date: Friday 6 October 2017
Location: Van Nelle Fabriek, Rotterdam

Research shows that making a positive societal impact enhances reputation, customer and employee loyalty and a growing customer base.

At the Summit, you will:

  • learn how bringing benefit to society can be part of a company mission and business model
  • explore how organisations can make a difference through management styles, human resource management, products and services, production process, foot print management, and facility management
  • think about your purpose and that of the organisation you work for.

During presentations by top academics and keynote speakers such as Feike Sijbesma (CEO at DSM) you can learn and exchange inspiring examples of how companies are contributing to the world’s largest challenges. With other Summit participants, you will be able to share ideas, learn from each other, network and get some answers to ‘What could I do?’
