What people have said about the summit?

Ethical Corporation bring together the best in business to make a difference

Jeff Swartz, CEO, Timberland

Excellent; well organised , thought-provoking, collegial

Greg Rossiter, Corporate Communications Director, Nike

I thought the start and finish timings, the mix of panel and roundtables and networking breaks worked really well. Banning PowerPoint was also really effectively as it ensured the panel stuck to the brief and didn’t just present about their company

Dave Howson, Global Sustainability Director, Bacardi
