The world is changing, and business is responding. The Good Business Festival is part of a global movement that believes in the power of business to affect positive change.

In 2020, as the world reacts to Covid-19, our collective understanding of how the relationship between business, government and society can (or should) work is evolving every day. Now more than ever the future is unpredictable, but one thing is certain: business purpose is under the spotlight.

Act 1

Act 2

Act 1

In October 2020, The Good Business Festival Act 1 will be a one day Liverpool City Region takeover focused on Covid-19 response and recovery. Can we go back to business as usual after the crisis or is this an opportunity to reset and emerge into a new purposeful world order?

Expect powerful international content exploring what changes will stick, what will be temporary and what we’ve all learnt. We’ll reflect on the past few months of expedited innovation, societal upheaval and re-assessment of our priorities, and tackle what could and should happen next. Programming will cover a wider spectrum of our headline event strands and topics.

Act 2

In 2021, The Good Business Festival will return for Act 2. The smartest minds from around the world will reconvene to think big, galvanise our ambition and continue to drive positive change in our post-Covid-19 world.


Business can do better for society. Sign up to join us on our mission to drive the transformation of global business into a force for good.
