We work with academics to stimulate and collate new and exciting areas of research. Currently, we are focusing on studies which explore the relationship between businesses and ‘purpose’.
In September 2016, we co-hosted an international academic conference with London Business School and the LBS Leadership Institute. The aim of the conference was to explore the impact on business, of having a purpose that serves society.
The academic committee was chaired by Harvard Business School Professor, Rebecca Henderson, and the conference was witness to 19 papers being presented.
LEADERS OF TOMORROW
Members of the Blueprint team have delivered several guest lectures and workshops to different business schools. We are now in dialogue with a number of these schools, to try to bring Blueprint thinking into the programmes being delivered to our future business leaders.
