Frome Business Breakfast: Ethical Business Practice

1st May @ 7:00am

Actions, relationships, products and services can lead to an impact on the environment, wildlife and people throughout the world. Great organisations are built on strong ethical business practices, but these can’t be developed overnight. What does it mean to be an ethical business in Frome?

Join us at 7am on Tuesday 1st May for a Frome Business Breakfast on Ethical Business Practice.  Luke Wilde, from twentyfifty ltd will share his company’s experience of working with some of the world’s biggest companies on human rights, responsible sourcing and women’s empowerment – and also of being a small company seeking to ‘practice what they preach’ and apply good ethics to their own business. Becoming one of the first certified B-corp companies in the UK.

“Being ethical can sound rather remote from our day to day work, yet it covers the whole approach to how we do business,” said Town Councillor, Jean Boulton. “How we price, source, handle staff and customers are all part of the larger picture, it is about what drives us and why we are doing what we do.”

The Frome Business Breakfast is an exchange of knowledge and experience, open to all and a great opportunity to meet with other local organisations. Organised by Frome Town Council, Frome and District Chamber of Commerce, and Business Manager Mairi Connelly.

The event costs £10 per person with the breakfast included in the price. Dietary options are available upon request, prior to the event.
