It was Margaret Mead who said “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.” This quote has always resonated with me, and I saw JBS Executive Education becoming a B Corp as a way for us to achieve further impact for our learners, whilst benefiting our people, local communities and the environment.

I joined the B Corp team because I believe that it would crystallise JBS Executive Education's purpose, allow us to create new ways to positively impact society and the environment, and ultimately use our reach to help create the systemic change the world needs.

After discussing the B Corp movement with Professor Marquis, I realised how many of the underlying principles and goals resonated with my own desire to see change in the way value is perceived in the business landscape. It just made perfect sense that we should be a B Corp, and I decided to champion the cause within JBS Executive Education, ultimately leading to our certification.
