To say the past year brought challenges would be an understatement. But with a challenge comes an opportunity for innovation and a catalyst for change.
Our Spark Summit will share the inspirational stories and insights of Bruntwood Works customers and how they’re shaping an exciting new world.
Our first virtual Spark Summit will focus on three key areas; Sustainability, Innovation, and Community
Hear the personal stories, challenges, and strategies behind some of the most forward-thinking businesses and organisations with speakers from BrewDog, Jaguar Land Rover, and AO.com. The lineup also includes our "ones to watch", those building exciting fast-growth companies which are set to change the way we experience the world, and the community leaders striving to make it more inclusive.
This event is a must-attend for business leaders interested in creating innovative and ethical organisations.
