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 March 2021, The Good Business Festival itself will take place as a multi-day, multi-venue event. One year on from lockdown, having had time to process and reset, we will gather 10 000 participants* in Liverpool and its surrounding boroughs and engage with our digital audience of 400k+, for our showstopper event. The smartest minds from around the world will join us to think big, galvanise our ambition and continue to drive positive change in our post-Covid-19 world. With compelling, thought-provoking and unexpected programming, the festival will prove itself to be globally relevant and culturally essential. Core content will be accompanied by social and arts activities, educational programming and fringe events across the region.


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 learning, sharing knowledge and experience and wanting to be a part of the global good business movement.
