Under the Spotlight with Paul Polman

Curzon Bloomsbury, 13 May, 6pm to 8:30pm

Paul is Chair of the International Chamber of Commerce, The B Team and Vice-Chair of the U.N. Global Compact. He has almost four decades of experience in the consumer goods industry, having served in senior roles at Nestle and Procter & Gamble prior to becoming CEO of Unilever.

During his time at Unilever, the company was one of the best-performing in its sector, delivering ten years of consistent top and bottom line growth.

Paul was appointed to the U.N. Secretary General’s High-level Panel that developed the Sustainable Development Goals. He has played a leading role since in highlighting the business case for the 2030 development agenda, including as a founder member of the Business & Sustainable Development Commission. He remains a U.N.appointed SDG Advocate.

As well as discussing his long and illustrious career, Paul will be revealing more on his commitment to #Valuable500 - the global movement pledging to put disability on the business leadership agenda. Set up by Caroline Casey, Binc founder and speaker at our 2018 Braver Conference, it's a revolution we're also proud to be partners of.

This is a unique opportunity to discover marketing insights and hear the stories behind one of our industry's highflyers - so do come armed with all of your burning questions.
