BIMA Roundtable | So, you want to become a B Corp?

Posted by BIMA

Online Only Event: We will send you a meeting link once you sign up.

What?

Just lately it seems like everyone is talking about B Corp, and every other agency has either already certified or is on the journey to becoming one. But what does that mean? What is B Corp and why is it such a popular framework for companies who want to do business better?

Why?

You’ll hear real-life stories of how and why agencies decided to become B Corp certified. We’ll discuss the business benefits and potential pitfalls around the certification process, as well as helping you work out whether or not B Corp is right for your business.

Who is it for?

We’re hosting a panel discussion + Q&A covering everything you wanted to know about B Corp but were afraid to ask. You’ll hear from agency leaders who’ve successfully certified and from those who are currently going through the process. It’s a great opportunity to find out exactly what’s involved and whether B Corp is right for you.

This event is open to BIMA Members and Non- Members. For more information on becoming a BIMA Member visit the BIMA Site or email web@bima.co.uk
