Archipel&Co (UK Founder & Managing Director), committed to the transition to an inclusive economy
For over 20 years, Justin has been working at the interface of strategy, innovation and sustainability fuelled by the challenge of answering the next generation’s inevitable question: “what did you do to make it better?” As the Founder and Managing Partner of Archipel&Co’s UK office, Justin is committed to the transition to an inclusive economy. He and his team partner with clients to improve their business in “future markets” (precarious, complex and fast-growing) by introducing social insight and innovation to prototype, test and scale more robust, resilient and sustainable solutions. His favourite projects are those that require (1) learning with innovative marginalised communities, (2) applying those insights to design a better market-based solution and (3) iteratively improving that solution to optimise impact and return for community and client. Justin has applied this approach both in-house as an intrapreneur, as a sustainability lead and as a consultant in the circular economy, sanitation, consumer goods & services, agri-business and health arenas. On the subject of scale, Justin is frustrated by what sometimes feels like “pilot project paralysis”. Thus, he prioritises projects and clients whose ambition matches the scale of the problems we are facing. Justin believes intrapreneurs, those brave souls working inside large organisations for positive change, are a critical and under-served actor in scaling solutions. At Archipel&Co, he partners with intrapreneurs as clients while, as a Trustee and Catalyst of the League of Intrapreneurs, he is helping grow the global movement. Before founding and leading Archipel&Co’s UK office, Justin led corporate sustainability strategy at SC Johnson, PUMA and OVO Energy. He is a co-founder and non-executive director of INBONIS, a financial technology firm and Europe’s first SME-focused credit rating agency. Justin is also a Senior Associate of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership. Justin holds a BSc and an MBA from Cornell University.

Adapt and Thrive | New world of work
COVID 19 has shone a bright light on each of us acting in support of others first (vs. the task or self), has forced us to change the way we go about our daily work, and exposed inequalities in our society. This session will be a facilitated workshop to co-create a number of scenarios for how we can take the changes we have had to make through necessity, towards a new normal of work for all. We’ll look into the roles for the Intrapreneurs who have already identified as change makers and how the new normal can encourage everyone to be an Intrapreneur. We’ll focus on how do we make changes sustainable and how do we accelerate work on the issues that have been exposed as we move from Stabilise (mitigating short-term risks and stabilising operations) to Reopen (planning and orchestrating return to the workplace) to Grow (accelerating change to grow the next normal)? Imagine… if we could activate the potential of everyone.
