People Planet Pint Networking

Business As a Power For Good: Use your business to improve staff wellbeing, transform society, save the planet and grow your profits

Date: Thursday 16 March 2023

Timings: 9.30 – 4.30pm  [Business As a Power For Good] followed by 4.30pm the launch of the first People, Planet Pint event in Lancashire: No agenda, workshops or webinars. Just chat over some pizza and beers  with others who have a shared passion for sustainability in all its forms. 

Registration on Eventbrite. We have no financial support this year, we are doing this event at our own expense and risk. The ticket price covers:

  • lovely donation to the vat man
  • lunch, coffee, cake throughout the day
  • pizza and a drink at the People Planet Pint networking event
  • staff to run the event
  • electricity cost
  • charitable donation

I know this really isn't the best business owner practice, but being honest I don't personally make any money for doing this event. I just strongly believe it's the right thing to do. I just need to cover the costs so I'm not making a massive loss....

Here is some background information: 

Business As a Power For Good is back for the second time, but better…

  • Less presentations
  • More breakouts and conversations
  • More implementation and taking action.
  • More networking and socialising
  • More fun!

Our agenda is coming together nicely, but to give you an idea of the format:

9.45am               Welcome and Scene Setting

10:00am             Keynote speaker

10:45am             Breakout and Collaboration 1

11.45am             Breakout and Collaboration 2

12.45                  Lunch and Networking   (llama selfies optional) 

1.30pm               Breakout and Collaboration 3

2.30pm               Breakout and Collaboration 4

3.30pm               Plenary: Outcomes, learning and action.

4.30pm               People, Planet, Pint Networking (with a free drink and pizza)

Idea is that delegates rotate throughout the day (to different areas of The Wellbeing Farm) through 4 Collaborations (workshops / breakouts), which are facilitated and focus on discussion and debate: Each workshop has a facilitator and scribe, the Facilitator will stay in the same workshop all day and build on the session culminating at the end where the facilitator will feedback to the whole event the outcomes of their workshop

Breakout and Collaboration 1:

Building your internal champions: Engaging your co-workers (staff) on your sustainability journey and improving their wellbeing and purpose 

Breakout and Collaboration 2:

How your business can transform society: an introduction to donut economics and the wellbeing economy (community focus)

Breakout and Collaboration 3:

How your business can help save the planet: how to kickstart your sustainability journey (sustainability focus)

Breakout and Collaboration 4:

Grow your profits: How becoming purpose-led can help you grow your profits – how to communicate your company’s purpose and resources to help   (practical support)

4.30pm onwards: fun, social networking via People, Planet, Pint launch for Lancashire (this also is doubling up as The Wellbeing Farm’s 10-year in business celebration) - people can also just register to attend this part separately too.

Coffee will be available via Brew Stations on tap throughout the day.
