Ethics for Success – TUCO Winter Conference 2017
University of Strathclyde, Glasgow
The way in which an ethical approach to your work can be the key to sustained success is the theme for our third annual winter conference.
This year we’re off to the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow for what promises to be a thought-provoking programme that will build on the success of 2016’s winter conference in Manchester.
Leading experts will explore everything from workforce issues to the way in which sustainability can become ingrained in your organisation.
Stephanie Fairhurst, psychological skills mentor at Chimp Management, will kick off the morning session by examining how organisations can develop a corporate culture that empowers staff and delivers better results.
Next up is Dr Bernadette Scott, senior lecturer at Glasgow Caledonian University’s School for Business and Society. A former chef and catering manager, Bernadette will look at what is a key challenge for the hospitality sector – graduate recruitment and retention.
The afternoon session begins with a presentation from Wendy Duncan, research and development technical manager at Unilever. She is an expert in communicating how food labels, reducing food waste and nutrition has a positive impact on consumers and business.
Delegates will then hear from education officer Joe Black about the work of Mary’s Meals, a charity that sets up community-run school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest communities
Billy Miller, owner and managing director of Coffee Conscience – an award-winning company that many members will be familiar with – will round off our programme.
Since its launch in 2004, Coffee Conscience’s mission has been to “develop Fairtrade coffee, tea, and chocolate and with every cup we produce to make a difference by delivering social, environmental and community responsibility”.
As well as describing the company’s journey, he will address how other organisations can emulate his firm’s success and embed those principles.
The winter conference is free to TUCO members and as well as gaining practical insight from our speakers, there will be ample networking opportunities during the course of the day.
