2022 Shared Value Masterclasses

In response to the increasing appetite for practical, interactive and case study-rich workshops, we’ve taken our annual Masterclass Series up a notch.

You’ll be in good company – with impressive teachers including Harvard lecturer and shared value co-founder Mark Kramer and shared value expert Hugh Foley; and executive speakers from AIA AustraliaEnel Green Power Australia, IAG and more.

And you’ll draw from Harvard Business School case studies, e-learning modules and global & local shared value leaders who will unpack how to bring profit and purpose together through the creation of shared value. Please be aware that participation in our 2022 masterclasses requires pre-work and participation in a study group (1 hour preceding the workshop).
