Speakers Corner has achieved B Corporation certification, in recognition of the company’s dedication to upholding high standards of social and environmental responsibility in the events and conference industry.

Earning B Corp status signifies Speakers Corner’s commitment to operating as a business that prioritises positive social impact and environmental stewardship. This milestone solidifies Speakers Corner’s position as a leader in ethical and sustainable event solutions.

“We are immensely proud to have achieved B Corp status,” said Nick Gold, managing director at Speakers Corner. “This certification embodies our core values and underscores our ongoing commitment to drive positive change within the events industry. It’s a testament to our belief that events can be both impactful and responsible.”

Through various initiatives aimed at reducing its carbon footprint, supporting local communities, and advocating for social causes, Speakers Corner has set a benchmark for responsible corporate citizenship within the events sector.

Highlights of its efforts to becoming B Corp certified include:

Environmental: Increasing use of electric vehicles which do not produce CO2 emissions for logistical activity in the business means we have saved 1,160,631.92 grams of CO2 emissions.

Diversity: employing a diverse team with over 30% of employees identify as being from a racial or ethnic minority, and almost 50% of managers identify as women.

Employee wellbeing: all employees are paid above the living wage, plus there is a bonus scheme, and we offer monthly contributions to a health and well-being benefit scheme, as well as monitor and continuously improve our employee engagement and satisfaction.

Knowledge sharing: Speakers Corner aims to impart and share the wisdom, experience, and expertise of some of the most brilliant minds and amazing people along with their stories to audiences globally through the power of the spoken word.

As a B Corp accredited business, Speakers Corner joins a global community of organisations committed to redefining success in business by balancing profit with purpose.
