LBG reminders and event opportunities

There are a number of important reminders and exciting event opportunities for LBG members and non-members this month.

Firstly, the LBG Members Conference is only one week away. We are thrilled to report that we’ve had an excellent rsvp rate and this year’s event will be our most highly attended conferences to date. It is not too late to rsvp https://2016lbgconference.eventbrite.com.au.  With a host of international and local experts talking about some of the most important topics in corporate community investment today, you don’t want to miss out.

Also a reminder that Mike Tuffrey, Co-Founder of LBG and Corporate Citizenship will be visiting our region this month. Mike is one of the world’s leading experts in sustainability and community investment and there is a rare opportunity to spend some time with Mike.  He will be with us from Wednesday 9 November until Wednesday 16 November and there are still a small number of opportunities to engage with Mike in Sydney and Melbourne. 

Please email simon.robinson@corporate-citzenship.com regarding an opportunity to meet with Mike during his visit.

He will be leading a series of talks entitled ‘Keeping It Real – Maintaining Authenticity in a Fast Moving World’. These sessions will encapsulate Mike’s views on some of the most challenging issues in CCI today including a disruptive economy, ageing population and diversified boards.

Kindly hosted by ANZ and with lunch provided you can register for the event here:
