Business For Better

Join us for the Sussex Business for Better lunchtime event series, where you can hear from Sussex alumni who are dedicated to making the world a better place through working in business.

On the last Wednesday of every month, you can meet one of our prominent and inspiring alumni working in industry and listen to what they think matters most when trying to succeed in business – whilst also making a positive difference. We’ll be focusing on current issues facing business such as:

  • Social purpose
  • The necessity of inclusivity
  • Sustainability
  • The reality of climate change
  • The multiplicity of stakeholders

Each event will be a TEDx-style talk where the alum will give a fifteen minute presentation on their approach to business, followed by an interview held by a Business School student. There will also be an opportunity for audience questions. See previous events below:
