Running a business with purpose is the topic of the first webinar from Wiltshire-based charity Business Against Poverty.

The charity, a membership organisation and the business division of People Against Poverty, has invited three business leaders who put purpose at the heart of what they do to join the panel.

Graham Massey, co-founder of Bath-based creative agency The House will join the webinar from Bucharest, along with Jules English and Jim Parry Of Triangle Design in Bristol, and Prasant Yelchuri, who will join the panel from India, where he runs a mountain hiking business along with a school for 200 local children.

The session will be facilitated by Paul Van Haver who is an International Director of a global organisation in the software and communications field.

Val Huxley, CEO of Business Against Poverty, said: "During these extraordinary times most of us are re-addressing our businesses and purpose within our lives. Purpose driven businesses have a significant role in society now more than ever.

"It doesn’t matter the size business – all have the ability to make a positive difference for clients, staff, suppliers and community – both locally, nationally and internationally."

The webinar runs from 10.30am until 11.30am on Wednesday, September 9. For more information, or to book a place, visit https://businessagainstpoverty.com/events/keeping-your-business-on-purpose
