It’s time to bring your bold ideas to the global table. Our environmental, sustainable and ethical concerns need to be addressed by businesses and entrepreneurs who have vision and passion and who recognise we need to do things a little differently. It's time to find some meaning. 21st century business event, the Meaning Conference, has unveiled its first wave of speakers and there's some true pioneers on its line up.

Thinkers, doers, futurists, entrepreneurs - all are welcome at the one day event that has sustainable business at its heart. But it’s more than just a business conference, it’s more of an ethically charged TED. Meaning's themes include disruptive innovation, the future of work, 21st century leadership and systematic sustainable change.

This year’s speakers include Tessa Wernick, the co-founder of Fairphone, Jurriën Mentink who lives with retirees in Humanitas, a groundbreaking project that mixes the young and old in Holland and Kyra Maya Phillips who channels innovative business advice not from boardrooms but from prisons and refugee camps. The conference this year has been guest curated by Mark Stevenson, author of An Optimist’s Guide to the Future and We Do Things Differently who recognises that to be successful in the future we’re going to have to change a thing or two.

The Meaning Conference takes place on 16 November 2017 in Brighton.
