Why Good is Better…

28th September 2023

At M&M, we’re saying goodbye to greenwashing and showcasing sustainability. For too long, our industry has been synonymous with throwaway giveaways. But how does that represent your brand and your values? And are all eco options truly eco or sustainable?

The good news is that’s now a thing of the past and are industry is changing, with a commitment to sustainability driving innovation and choice.

We’ve joined up with a number of our suppliers of sustainable merchandise, alongside Claire Thayers, Nik Venios and Squashed Robot, to demonstrate why good is better – better for business, better for Gloucestershire, better for our people and for our planet.

Places are limited, so book now for networking, a showcase of the latest sustainable merchandise, 121 meetings and interactive sessions from CSR expert Claire Thayers and innovation strategist Nik Venios.

What can you expect?

• The chance to discover more about innovation in the world of sustainable merchandise (from production methods and materials to packaging and traceability) and how to pick out promotional products that match your company values and sustainability pillars.

• Learn more about CSR, Sustainability and Innovation with our two key speakers:

Claire Thayers will be sharing more about CSR and ESG, her own passion for Gloucestershire and the circular economy, the Social Value Act and why exactly doing good is good for business. And you’ll come away with her top 10 tips to put into action in your own business.

Nik Venios’ interactive session will dive headfirst into the meeting of innovative thinking, smart economics and social responsibility. You’ll leave with an insight into combining sustained business growth and positive social impact – and a cost-effective innovation toolkit.

• Plenty of networking opportunities with Gloucestershire based businesses.

We will be running two sessions, one in the morning and one in the afternoon. And if you can’t manage to make a full session, we also have a number of ‘drop in’ tickets available, so you can still come along to learn more from the M&M team, visit the sustainable merchandise showcase or book a 121 meeting.

To find out more and book your ticket, visit our Eventbrite page. All proceeds from ticket donations will go directly to Hope for Tomorrow, to help keep the wheels turning on mobile cancer care.
