Campaigning for good

Investment for Idealism - Film

Responsible investing can deliver strong returns as well as a better world. Climate transition presents an historic investment opportunity. Instead of saying ‘how are we going to pay for this’ – should we be asking 'what’s the price for not changing now?

Can the Beautiful Game Be Good?

It's no longer just locker room chat - the world has woken up to the enormous power of professional sports to drive change (or provoke debate) in our societies. What needs to happen for sport to be a permanent force for good - for fans, for players and communities?

Places with Purpose

Every place is an opportunity - not just for making money, but for making a positive impact on the world. How can towns and cities build common purpose amongst citizens, communities, elected representatives, businesses to make this happen?

It is with heavy heart we announce we are postponing our festival to later in 2021.

In light of the extension of lockdown, and additional regional travel restrictions also being announced, it really made it impossible to deliver our ambitious, shiny, loud, brilliant festival experience in July.

All purchased tickets will be valid for new dates, with more info to come on that. We remain dedicated to making The Good Business Festival happen safely, in person, not behind yet another screen.

This is a postponement with purpose. Our ambition to change business for good remains.

We're bringing together the smartest minds from across industries.

Think of us as SXSW meets TEDx meets Boiler Room with a hint of Davos – minus the private jets

This isn’t a conference. It’s a multi-day, multi-venue shiny new festival driven by creatives, with big-hitting topics at its core and a packed programme of fringe and social events too. We believe that the relationship between business and society – the way that global economics affects our everyday lives – needs to be talked about in a more accessible and engaging way. So we’re going to get as many voices as possible involved in the debate about good business, and have a really good time whilst we’re at it.

The festival will be a platform where everyone can learn from each other.

We believe that the only way to drive change is to make sure absolutely everyone has a seat at the table. 

Whether you run your own business, work in someone else’s or just want to do better for our planet and humanity, you will find something for you.

For starters, we’ve invited these kind of people: household names and rising stars in business and culture. Titans of industry. Activists. Academics, educators, writers, creatives and contrarians. Legislators, students, philosophers, scientists and start-ups. Radical thinkers, provocateurs, thought leaders and pioneers.

There’ll be people who agree with you and people who don’t. We hope you’ll find your next investor, your next employee, your next collaborator. There’ll definitely be people who know more than you about important things, as well as people who want to learn from your expertise or experience.

See a list of brands, NGOs and charities involved here.

This is the only way forward.

It’s pretty simple really – this is the way forward for the world. It’s what consumers want, it’s what your kids want and it’s what the planet and our society needs.

What’s good for society is also good for business – thinking beyond the bottom line has positive impacts for everyone – people, planet and businesses.

Together we can change business for good.

Headline Sessions



The Good Business Festival is passionately non-exclusive. It’s not about what you do or who you know. It’s not about agreeing on everything all of the time. It’s about everyone working towards a better world – no matter where you’re starting from.
