GGA 2023 – The Purpose Summit


We’ve teamed up with The Crowd to deliver The Purpose Summit – a day of insight, advice and bright ideas.

You’ll be inspired by experienced business leaders and Global Good Award winners, learning how they have turned purpose-led strategies into action. You’ll take part in interactive sessions revealing how change happens. The day will help you plan real progress in purpose-driven leadership, sustainable business, and positive social impact.


The Summit will be followed by an invitation-only ‘Winners’ Dinner’ for winners, judges and sponsors with a drinks reception, trophy presentation on stage and keynote speaker. Find out more and book your tickets to the dinner here.


You’ll need to return to the GGA site to purchase tickets for both events, but the full agenda with all the sessions, along with speaker line-up as it unfolds, can be found below.

Who is the event for?

In a complete contrast to a traditional awards ceremony, where the event is purely for its finalists, the Purpose Summit is very much for any business keen to make an impact, especially those that entered this year or any year previously and may not have made it to the shortlist or the podium. Why? Because it’s clear that you’re making a huge effort towards a more sustainable planet, otherwise why would you have entered?

What happens if we won a GGA?

If your organisation won a GOLD in any of the 2023 categories, you will have already been asked to take part in one of our ‘Listen & Learn’ or ‘Interactive Workshop’ sessions at the Summit. This is your chance to share your insights and experience that earned you the Gold Award: what worked, what didn’t, what were the biggest challenges, and what best practices you can share to help other organisations make a positive impact – faster, and at scale.

You will be joined on the session by specialists and leaders from business, along with one of GGA’s expert judges. You will have two months to liaise with our team and the other speakers to prepare for the session.

To attend in-person, speakers must be UK based, or able to travel to our event sustainably due to our no-fly policy.

What is the cost to attend?

You will receive one free ‘speaker’ ticket if you win gold. Further tickets can be purchased here. All entrants receive a 20% discount off tickets, using code ‘GGAPURPOSE202320’ and if you’d like to take advantage of the Early Bird Discount (before 11th Aug), we’ll refund the speaker ticket when the winners are announced.

Who can attend the Winners' Dinner?

2023 GGA winners (gold, silver, bronze, One-To-Watch), all awards and summit sponsors, and GGA judges.

Get your tickets two ways…

You can either complete the online booking form and pay on CC or you can request an offline booking form, complete Section 1 (and Section 2 if you have the information) and email it to us. We would specifically advise the latter if you need a mixture of Summit and Winners’ Dinner tickets, that include free speakers allocations, entrant discounts etc.
