About the event
Can you succinctly describe what your company does – without simply explaining the business strategy? What do you do for people, businesses, or society, beyond selling a product or service? What is your Purpose?
Transparency, authenticity and social responsibility are watch words for the new age of Purpose. We have never seen a bigger push by brands to clearly demonstrate their value to the world beyond adding to their bottom line. Yet, even with all of the positive noise being made about CSR, social investments and staff wellness initiatives, we still see these undertakings isolated from, and largely irrelevant to the core business strategy. It matters more than ever now, with Covid-19 having further exposed the frailties within our society.
This begs the question, is there a contradiction between the commercial interests of brands and what customers expect in terms of social responsibility? Or is it simply that existing initiatives are often a shallow attempt to retrofit a conscience onto a commercial enterprise?
Brands like Patagonia seem to be on everyone’s lips when discussing sustainable responsible business practices. But why is Patagonia still our go-to example in the search for the authentically Purpose-led brands? Are we that starved of other clear examples?
At Siegel+Gale, we want to unwrap and clarify the idea of being Purpose-led through our unique lens of Simplicity. Join us for our interactive breakout forum to share ideas with industry leaders and inspire positive change within business that can also ultimately drive growth.

ABOUT THE WHAT VAN? AWARDS
The What Van? Awards are recognised as the most prestigious independent accolades in the UK’s light commercial vehicle industry.
The intention is for the event to return to December following the success of last year’s virtual ceremony. The awards provides attendees with the opportunity to network and celebrate the success of their peers across carefully selected categories.
The What Van? Awards provide recognition for brands, businesses and organisations that have reached the pinnacle of their fields. What Van? assembles an experienced panel of independent judges from across the LCV sector to evaluate the entrants.
The categories evolve from year to year to ensure we recognise changing trends and developments spanning the breadth of the light commercial vehicle industry.
2020 and 2021 have been unprecedented years for the events industry, which has affected every aspect of how we engage with our target audiences. Handshakes and business card exchanges have been replaced with virtual networking lounges and instant messaging.
At Progressive Media International, we have led the market in successfully transforming our event calendar into online activities, with impressive engagement numbers which out have outshone our competitors in not only retaining but actually growing our audiences.
Now, as we plan to emerge from a fully virtual world and re-enter physical event activations, we face a challenge on providing a safe environment for us to meet again and our intention to host this event in a hybrid (both physical and virtual synchronised) format.
So, what does this mean for this event? Our team of marketers and specialist event producers have consulted the market, are working closely with venues and conducting all the risk-assessments required to be able to bring us all together in one room again.

The New Statesman’s 4th annual Cyber Security in Financial Services conference is back to take place on the 23 – 24 November 2021.
Whilst we eagerly await a return to live events and networking, the health and wellbeing of all involved must remain our priority, so considering the ongoing developments and concerns around the pandemic, the conference will return in 2021 as a hybrid event.
The pressure is on the financial sector supporting business in the ‘return to normal’ or the ‘new normal’ as well as handling this transition themselves. Banks must remain competitive amid digital transformation and the recent explosion in cyber-crime, not only whilst upholding the strongest information security systems but also while adapting to the impact of the pandemic and Brexit. Additionally, the complications of tight data regulations continue to evolve, as well as the sector opening to challengers. The New Statesman Cyber Security in Financial Services programme will address these challenges, opportunities and more that the sector faces whilst maintaining its cyber resilience.
The conference presents the opportunity to showcase your organisation and engage with influential decision-makers. Attendees can share ideas, innovations, initiatives and take part in virtual chats and private 1-2-1 conversations. There will also be the opportunity to engage with presentations on the main stage, and in Q&As with the speakers and sponsors.
Thought leaders and senior figures will present throughout the day to examine current regulations, key trends, and developments.

Anticipating the global drive towards a ‘net zero carbon’ future, cities are setting ambitious decarbonisation targets to reduce their impact on the environment.
Blueprints for a net zero city hybrid conference will focus on forward thinking strategies that urban environments are implementing to deliver on net zero targets. These range from construction techniques through to operational use, designing for embodied carbon from material specification through to repair and maintenance, and what client demands are regarding costs to impacts. Case studies will cover hot topics such as sustainable land development and city making, urban green infrastructure, ‘Whole Life Carbon Vision’, green technologies, green retrofit projects, smart buildings, digital twins, alternative building materials, timber construction, and sustainable design.
Join us this autumn to engage with your peers and gain new insight from key industry leaders examining opportunities and exploring how technology, digitalisation, net-zero carbon targets and the pandemic are transforming the built environment across the entire supply chain. The opportunity presented is to engage with influential decision makers through networking and private 1-2-1 meetings introductions. You will also be able to engage with the speakers on the main stage and participate in live Q&A sessions at the conference venue as well as remotely from our virtual platform.
Some of the topics to be covered include:
- Cities quest for net zero emissions.
- Digital transformation. How does the role of technology help cut the carbon footprint of a city?
- Redesigning urban infrastructure with minimised carbon footprint
- The future of green/circular construction and sustainable building design
- Designing low energy architecture and high-performance buildings
- Creating a sustainable and regenerative urban environment
- Environmentally responsive façades
- Circular materials and Biophilic design
