Man Bites Dog and Ambition are delighted to invite you to the second in our series of webinars exclusively aimed at Marketing and BD professionals working in professional services.   

The next event is on 21st September at 12.30pm and is all about 'Sustainable Thinking: What the climate agenda means for professional services marketing and BD’.  

Decarbonising our economy to combat climate change is the challenge of our lifetime and business has a critical role to play. The scale of innovation and organisational transformation required to bring about a net-zero economy cannot be underestimated.

Whether you’re a professional advisor helping companies to navigate change, or a CEO leading a corporate transition strategy, your sustainable thinking is critical to competitive advantage in the next economy.  

In this webinar, we will examine:  

  • The role of professional services firms in helping clients navigate the greatest challenge of our age: climate change.  

  • How your organisation can find its authentic “green space” - where you can take a leadership position to effect meaningful change.

  • How to develop and communicate ‘sustainability as a service’ offers to support clients (including multinationals and the financial sector) on their net-zero journeys.  

We have a fantastic panel lined up and this promises to be a highly engaging event with plenty of practical takeaways.

Our host, Ambition’s Matthew Gardner, will be joined by Man Bites Dog Founder and CEO, Claire Mason; Man Bites Dog Divisional Director, Alison Sharpe; Watson Farley & Williams LLP Director of Client & Strategic Development, Rippan Vig, and Marketing Campaign Manager at Addleshaw Goddard, Justine Joisce.  

Spaces are limited, so if you're a Marketing or BD professional working in a professional services firm, register your interest today to secure your free spot. 


We look forward to seeing you there.
