Small Business, Big Hearts and Regional Investment:

The Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) and Business in the Community have partnered together to invite businesses from across South Yorkshire to discuss the benefits and practicalities of becoming a ‘responsible business’.

Event details

Responsible business considers society, community, economy and the environment – including through supporting supply-chains, procurement processes, employment practices, and sustainability measures.

The event is kindly supported by Sheffield Business School, Sheffield Hallam University.

The event will explore the answers to: 

  • How do we better unlock the potential of our small businesses so they can thrive?
  • How can we improve the synergy between Big and Small Business?
  • How do businesses operate responsibly whilst continuing to grow?
  • What are businesses already doing to future-proof operations?
  • What practical steps and support is available to businesses?

Network with other likeminded businesses from across the region, hear from experts on this growing topic and have an opportunity to put your questions to our panel Q&A session.
