Masterclass Leadership in Sustainability for Financials; Enrich your knowledge & discover the success factors for impactful change!

Climate change is seen as the biggest corporate risk (World Economic Forum, 2020). Sustainability and innovation are therefore increasingly important for organizations to remain successful. Financials, in various roles, will be more and more challenged to know the impact on sustainability on investments, analysis and reporting. Within the financial field, developments in the field of sustainability are rapidly evolving.

Although sustainability is on the agenda of many organisations, it is not always embedded in target setting and decision making of financials. That is why leading impactful change initiatives is not easy, however very relevant and inspiring!

In this Masterclass we discuss key contextual insights on the role finance can play and the current issues with sustainable finance. The key success factors for sustainable change within finance are on the agenda. As guidance we use the Impact Leadership Model of the University of Cambridge, which is based on years of research. This Masterclass gives you both knowledge on sustainable finance and guidance on making impactful change.

The Masterclass is organised in an inspiring learning environment with a group of enthusiastic, financial professionals. Knowledge exchange, interaction and inspiration are the key elements of this training.
