Leeds Businesses Team Up To Celebrate B Corp Month Launching ‘The Big B Corp Do’

To celebrate B Corp month across March, Leeds based digital agency Flaunt Digital teamed up with fellow B Corp certified organisation Oakland to launch ‘The Big B Corp Do’ last week.

Hosted at Oakland’s HQ in Leeds, the event welcomed already certified B Corps, those delving into the assessment process, and organisations completely new to the journey. The event also featured food from Pizza Pilgrims, as well as drinks from Brewgooder, Dash Water, and Lucky Saints, all of which have secured their own B Corp Certification and live music from Callum Spencer.

Flaunt Digital received their certification this January, joining the other 2000 UK businesses who have been acknowledged for their adherence to high standards of social and environmental impact, as well as public transparency, and legal accountability.

CEO of Flaunt Digital Lee Fuller and CEO of Oakland Richard Corderoy both took to the stage during the evening to discuss why they made the decision to become certified and their experiences of becoming a B Corp business. They were joined by Fiona Ras Jones, B Corp B Leader and Founder of Mission Works, who shared her advice for those looking to start their B Corp journey and some insight into the process.

Lee shared his thoughts from the evening “It was a pleasure to speak about Flaunt’s B Corp journey and what it means for us to be part of the community. It was also a please to share the stage with Fiona and Richard who both share the passion for the community. I look forward to hosting more collaborative events to spread the word and build awareness in the B Corp movement.”.

Richard said “Seeing so many similar-minded people come together at Oakland HQ at last weeks Big B Corp Do was fantastic. Three years ago, we embarked on a journey to become part of a movement that’s about more than just a badge on our door; it’s a reflection of our business’s core values. For Oakland, being a B Corp is a commitment to a set of principles that guide our decision-making and enable us to use our business as a force for good”.
