Regeneration: Leading with Conscience

Do the Right Thing while Building a Successful Organization

Medinge Group and Edinburgh Napier University are hosting an interactive forum with experts and conscientious leaders from the business, public and third sectors in Scotland at Edinburgh Napier University’s Craiglockhart campus on April 25, 2024.

Join us for a stimulating exchange of ideas, perspectives and real-world experiences through a series of case studies, panels and Q&As. We will discuss how organisations need to think critically and creatively about their role; how to use their conscience to guide their actions, reconciling the often competing interests of different stakeholders; and how to create an organisation that is fair, open and transparent. One that does the right thing while building a profitable business and creating long term success.
