About our Speakers

Fiona Ras-Jones, B Corp Leader at Make Impact

Business has huge potential to change the world for the better. Some of the most exciting brands are leading the way. But frankly, it is not happening fast enough and sometimes it’s being done badly because people just don’t know how to do it.

With a background in working for charities, the public sector and social enterprise and experience in business development and innovation, Fiona became a B Corp B Leader and started Make Impact, an agency helping companies stand out for their impact.

She wants to see companies making real, measurable impact and for those that do business for good to grow, to outperform their competitors, reimagine their industries and inspire others to do the same.


Leanne Doutre, Operations Manager, Graphite Digital

Graphite Digital are a Brighton-based digital CX agency collaborating with healthcare and pharmaceutical organisations around the world to deepen customer connection through meaningful digital experiences.

Join Graphite's Operations Manager, Leanne Doutre, to hear all about the B Corp certification process which took nearly a year to complete. Find out what they learned along the way and what they’ll be focusing on now, to help improve their score year on year.

At Graphite, we hold ourselves to high ethical standards; recognising and respecting the role that we have in the local community through relationships, and the wider world through our work — making a positive impact on people’s health and wellbeing through digital.

It’s important to us as leaders that we do things right, by people and the planet, and so when we heard about B Corp, we quickly recognised the value. We decided to commit to the process of evaluation and a continued journey in developing the business in an ethical and sustainable way.
