The Virtual Sustainability Masterclass will help sustainability leaders from the biggest organizations develop cutting edge, science backed strategies in operations & supply chain, energy & waste management, product innovation, employee engagement, consumer engagement and communications.
The format is simple: we have three Virtual Roundtable rotations, each featuring a 10 minute presentation from one of our sustainability expert speakers, followed by 20 minutes of peer-to-peer conversations. After each presentation and discussion, a new team of experts will join the room to deliver their presentation and facilitate roundtables. These events are designed to be highly interactive and if you're planning on joining us, we strongly encourage you to participate in the discussion with your audio and video on!
Due to the intimate nature of the breakout rooms, you are able to ask questions, address challenges facing your organization, speaking directly with the experts and other participants. Because of the importance placed on discussion, we're sure to address your specific needs during this 2 hour event.
In addition, you can help us shape the agenda by suggesting core topics and posing questions to focus on during the registration process. Just click the Register Now button and we look forward to seeing you soon!
