Synopsis

The future of retail - Thursday 25 February - 2PM GMT | 3PM CET | 9AM EST

We’ll be discussing the impact of the pandemic and how this has turned chronic issues into acute problems. We’ll cover the legal implications of contactless shopping, importance of brand trust, managing supply chain and bringing agility to the management of inventory, including rebalancing e-commerce and real estate. We'll be joined by lawyers from the UK, Europe and the US.

 

Diversity and Inclusion - Thursday 18 March - 2PM GMT | 3PM CET | 9AM EST

Diversity and inclusion have increasingly come into focus for food and beverage businesses; with the tragic events in the summer of 2020 and the disparate impact COVID 19 has had on the ethnic minorities and older people, equality issues have become a top priority for many boards.

Customers, investors and employees are wanting to understand what businesses are doing to tackle the issue of equality in the workplace and in wider society. At the same time, the business case for diversity is clear – those businesses which have a diverse executive team significantly outperform those business which don’t.

During this webinar, we’ll delve into some of the key issues in relation to addressing equality, diversity and inclusion.

 

The journey to net zero - Thursday 27 April - 2PM GMT | 3PM CET | 9AM EST

In this webinar our partners will discuss climate risk and identify key priorities as businesses aim to transition to net zero, along with future challenges and how to turn these into opportunities.
