Conference Overview

Business4Better (B4B) features a two-day conference designed specifically for individuals from midsized enterprises responsible for social responsibility, community outreach and corporate volunteer programs. The conference will help businesses develop the knowledge, competencies and contacts to partner with nonprofits in ways that make a substantive impact on societal causes — from poverty alleviation to education to environmental protection — and on their own business performance, from branding to employee engagement to product innovation.

The B4B Conference will deliver cross-sector, engaging content through:

  • Keynote addresses from innovators in business-nonprofit partnerships
  • Main stage supersessions that will inspire and “make the case” for a new way of doing business through community engagement and social purpose
  • Breakout sessions with real-world practical and tactical information on nurturing, building and measuring social responsibility strategies, mutually-beneficial partnerships and successful programs
  • Show floor sessions featuring case studies, research, tools and tips for both business and nonprofit attendees
