Leading Purpose-Driven Talent

Tuesday, June 6, 2023
11:00am – 12:00pm EST
4:00 – 5:00pm BST


BritishAmerican Business, in partnership with Brandpie, is delighted to welcome you back to our Power of Purpose Series exploring the crosscutting idea of purpose in business.  Hiring purpose-driven talent is key to the future and success of your business. Having purpose at the center of your mission will drive your employee engagement, giving your team a sense of meaning and belonging. Employees increasingly expect companies they work for to have a positive impact on society and demonstrate that this approach is reflected in the company’s core values.

Join us to hear from a panel of leading executives from Galderma, Hearst Magazines and Mazars USA, who are responsible for the strategy behind people, culture and communications. Our panel will share their insights on how purpose helped them inspire, engage and give their people a sense of direction. 

The Power of Purpose series showcases leaders who are making a mark by using purpose to energize their organizations and deliver sustainable growth.

The STIR: Building a Truly Inclusive Work Culture: LGBTQ+ Perspective

Wednesday, May 31, 2023
11:00am – 12:00pm EDT / 4:00pm – 5:00pm BST


While the business case has been made for diverse organizations, hiring individuals of diverse background isn’t sustainable without an authentic approach and an inclusive workplace culture that encourages everyone to succeed.

Circular Transformation: Designing Business Models for Durability, Reuse, Remanufacturing and Recyling

Thursday, May 18, 2023

11:00 AM – 12:00 PM EST


Industries and businesses have set ambitious sustainability targets for the next 10-20 years compelling companies to reuse and recycle in more efficient and innovative ways, rather than using raw materials.

A circular economy retains the value of products or resources by putting them back into the product cycle after use and enhancing waste management. Yet, a recent Bain & Company Survey found that 60% of active circularity initiatives have not reached scale. Stakeholders need to come together to build the operating system for the circular economy, find new forms of collaboration and follow the footsteps of industry innovators.

Join BAB and our expert panel as we explore how the circular transition compels a shift in business models, investment patterns, and economic incentives. We will look at what infrastructure is available to support this and how these shifts and new technologies can better position organizations to prosper and unlock productivity while contributing to sustainable growth.

The discussion will explore;
  • Harnessing waste as a source of energy: what opportunities are available to recover valuable resources from waste, reducing the need for new raw materials and saving energy.
  • Circular economy development: Visualizing new business models and collaborations to expand opportunities in waste reduction, reuse and recycling
  • Increased efficiency and cost savings: what improvements can reduce the environmental impact of waste and help companies save costs by reducing their waste disposal feeds.
  • Economic & behavioural challenges: what impact does investment patterns and economic incentives have on companies, governments and the consumer and how do we change our mindset.

Duane Morris Institute: Protected Conversations – Salvation in the Face of Difficult UK Dismissals?

Thursday May 4, 2023
2:00 – 3:00 pm (Webinar)


  • Under UK employment legislation there are several ways in which a difficult employment situation can create a risky departure scenario.
  • Whether the employee is choosing to leave of their own volition -but is clearly angry or upset, and therefore potentially litigious, or whether the employer is having to dismiss the employee but has concerns about litigation – either way the risk factor can be high with $100K damages the norm.
  • All UK employees with 24 months’ employment service are protected against dismissal at will.
  • A protected conversation is an “off the record” privileged conversation between an employer and employee by which an employer can initiate privileged pre-termination negotiations with an employee to explore the possibility of a consensual exit settlement agreement.
  • Protected conversations can be a swift and effective way to allow the parties an option to explore a consensual exit in a difficult employment situation, without a litigation risk or without invalidating a subsequent formal dismissal process.

Nic Hart Managing Partner of our London Office and Employment team is providing a training session on how and when to have a protected conversation, the risks that arise, the formalities required, and the use of settlement agreements.
