Millennials will make up half of the workforce by 2020. Sustainability values are more important to them than older generations. This has important implications for your future clients, consumers and employees.

Deloitte Private Club have invited SBN Members to attend Millennials, Sustainability and Business. Find out what your future clients and consumers want – and how you can deliver it.

Come and listen to Jacqueline Farman of Sustainable Business Network and Ben Gleisner from Conscious Consumer speak of how Millennials are reshaping markets and brands, and how to connect with the new generation of consumers. They will share trends and insights from within New Zealand and around the world, about how to succeed in a world where Millennials will soon be the biggest, most valuable and most demanding buying cohort yet.

Jacqueline Farman is the Chair of SBN, and co-founder of The Purpose Business, a business consultancy specialising in purpose led growth strategy. Prior to this she was CEO of Colmar Brunton, where she initiated New Zealand’s only longitudinal study into the cross-generational impact of sustainability (The Better Futures Report), and the country’s first ranking of corporate reputation.

Ben Geisner is the CEO & Co-founder of Conscious Consumers. Ben spent six years as a senior analyst at the New Zealand Treasury. He led teams working on energy policy, welfare reform, climate change and non-GDP measures of progress. He has owned a number of successful businesses, charities and social enterprises. Ben has been CEO of Conscious Consumers for four years.
