Ethics and Social Value in Business - Spring Seminar Series 


Join or dip into our new series of monthly videos featuring great speakers.  


Q&B held a very successful conference in November 2020 on the topic of Making Values Visible in Business.  Although the online event attracted an exciting range of international speakers, the intense schedule provided limited opportunities for stimulating conversations in the discussion breakouts. 

To extend the value of the conference, Q Connections networking group has decided to launch a series of ‘Values Videos’ - one hour sessions. The idea is for members to view videos of the speakers and connect with fellow members in further discussion. 

If you were unable to join the conference or missed some of the presentations now is your chance to listen to an amazing range of informative, thought provoking and cutting edge talks on ethics and social value in business.

The schedule:  March to June 


7.00 pm - 8.00 pm,  Wednesday 17 March
