About Impact Summit

Values-led business isn’t a trend; it is the future.

Impact Summit is Europe’s leading purpose-led business event - an annual gathering for those who dream of a thriving global economy that puts people and planet at its very heart. From entrepreneurs, to executives, to educators, we provide a platform to the people shaking things up, changing the status quo, and using purpose-driven business models as a means of tackling global challenges.

Join us to find inspiration, discuss ideas and connect with the people who are not only sharing in this vision, but bringing it to life.

Themes
We are facing environmental, social, economic and health problems not in isolation, but as an international community. Impact Summit is the platform for those finding solutions to the most pressing challenges of our time.

People: A human-centric, socially conscious approach is both a moral responsibility and a business imperative.

Planet: Putting the planet before profit is not a trade-off: it's an investment in our future.

Technology: We can't fly blindly into technology's bright light.
