A Together Apart Episode



Tune in on Facebook on Wednesday 29 April at 13:00 BST for the exclusive premiere of #TogetherApart - How great companies deliver both purpose & profit

COVID-19 has brought to life the latest surge in anti-capitalism, with people across the world becoming more vocal about crippling income inequality and limited access to essential resources.

We’re joined by One Young World Ambassador Carlotta Giacche and Professor of Finance at London Business School, Alex Edmans, to talk about the timely release of his new book, ‘Grow the Pie: How Great Companies Deliver Both Purpose and Profit’.

In this latest episode of #TogetherApart, Alex shares his expert advice for how businesses looking to drive purpose can create both profit and social value - but will companies operating without purpose survive in the post-pandemic world?
