Business Transformation: the Learning Organisation

How the seven risks that environment and sustainability pose to your firm can make you a smarter and more profitable operation.

A 1-day workshop

  • Does your business come under any degree of environmental compliance focus?
  • Are your customers, shareholders, lenders and insurers asking about your ecological, social and governance practices?
  • Are you struggling to define just how environment and sustainability risks are affecting your business bottom lines?
  • Do you worry about how sustainability pressures could affect the future of your business, and what to do about it?

If you answered “Yes” to one or more of these questions, then this workshop is for you. It sounds like compliance – but it’s really about transforming your business – and it’s based on solid evidence, including my own practical experience and deep research.

You presented some very well-developed thoughts on environmental performance and business success which went down extremely well with the contractors, who are a tough-minded audience. Derrick Adams, CEO, HEB Construction Ltd

This workshop helps you comply with the risk standards you use.

It applies leading science and business information to a range of very real risks posed by:

  • how your firm’s risk perception and appetite is influenced by neurology, psychology, individual conditioning and organisational culture
  • how this influences our attitude to environmental compliance and sustainability
  • global risks identified by the World Economic Forum
  • reputational and financial risks related to environment and sustainability
  • the risk to businesses posed by stronger drivers for social, financial and environmental sustainability.

Who should attend

  • CFOs – chief financial officers
  • CSOs – chief sustainability officers and environmental managers
  • Chief Risk Officers
  • learning and development staff in HR/people and culture teams
  • bid and tender teams where environment and sustainability are selection criteria
  • project or site managers where environment and sustainability are a compliance focus, e.g. civil and building construction or manufacturing
  • supply chain managers working with geopolitical and climate factors
  • government and nonprofits wanting to reframe environmental compliance as an opportunity for best business practice
  • health, safely, quality and environment staff whose roles include environment and sustainability management.

  • open up to wider drivers of risk such as those identified by the World Economic Forum
  • grasp the increasingly stringent reporting criteria being adopted by more and more stock exchanges all around the world

You will learn how to:

Clare was the stand out speaker at our Stormwater and Sediment Field Day. This event is held outside and it is a feat to address approximately 300 attendees in this environment. As the final speaker, Clare captivated and engaged the audience, finishing the presentations on a high note. Marcus Ballantyne, Auckland Council
