Event Details

In today's business environment, understanding Environmental Social Governance (ESG) principles is not optional - it's essential for young professionals aspiring to be senior leaders. These are the tools that empower professionals to make a positive impact, attract conscious clients, secure investment, meet evolving legal standards, create value, and future proof their careers.

Considering this, the Brisbane Junior Chamber of Commerce and the United Nations Association of Australia Young Professionals Network in Queensland are partnering to present 'People, Planet, Profit: Empowering Conscious Leadership'. We are proud to collaborate with CPA Australia, one of the world's largest accounting bodies, as our Venue Partner for this exciting educational event.

Our distinguished panel will feature voices from the not-for-profit, public, and private sectors, offering a diverse perspective on critical sustainability challenges and opportunities.

Beyond the enriching panel discussion, attendees will have the chance to connect with other purpose-driven professionals while enjoying an enticing grazing table and refreshing drinks. It's a unique opportunity to share insights and forge meaningful relationships in an atmosphere that champions sustainability and ethical leadership.

Join us for an evening of insightful discussions and networking, set to inspire and connect the next generation of Brisbane's business leaders committed to a sustainable and ethical future.
