Pure Planet was a digital supplier of renewable energy to domestic customers in the UK. It was launched in October 2016 and grew from 3 to 200 employees in five years.
Pure Planet was a business with a purpose – to make renewable energy affordable and available to all. The aim was to shape a culture to attract, engage and retain talent that aligned with the sustainable purpose and values of the business.
Sadly along with many other Utility companies Pure Planet went into Administration in late 2021 as a result of the price of wholesale Gas and the Governments enforced price cap.
Rich Roberts had been the People Director for six years taking them from start-up up to when he switched the lights off in the office for the final time. Along the way Pure Planet won many awards for creating a highly engaged and productive team. It was ranked number two in the Sunday Times Top 100 small companies to work in 2020 and was ranked number 3 in the Top 100 medium sized companies to work for in 2021.
Pure Planet won the Inspiring Workplaces Gold award for 2021.
Rich left his role at Pure Planet at the end March 2022. He is now undertaking freelance projects while deciding what to do next.
In his presentation Rich will cover:-
At Blood Cancer UK, the aim is to ensure the team thrives rather than just survives, and stays connected to the mission of beating blood cancer in a generation.
Jess will be sharing how Blood Cancer UK have embedded wellbeing as an authentic strategic priority for the organisation and a key part of their Employee Value Proposition, rather than it being an ‘add-on’ or a ‘nice to have’.
The talk will cover:
Attendees will learn how to:
Jen Jordan-Engel from Workvivo speaks to Rachael O’Shea from CluneTech about their journey from fully on-site to almost fully remote. With a distributed workforce, CluneTech have fostered a world-class culture digitally using Workvivo to center the employee experience.
Since 2020, the NHS Business Services Authority has maintained ‘outstanding engagement’ with its people in its annual employee engagement survey. Head of Communications and Marketing, Miranda Sykes, shares her experience of how this has been achieved, outlining initiatives on colleague engagement, wellbeing and leadership visibility set against a backdrop of moving from the coronavirus crisis into recovery.
Disability inclusion is accelerating up the priority list of organisations’ ‘must do’ tasks. Employees are expecting it. Customers demanding it. Non-negotiable for investors.
Most employers are already sitting on a gold mine. Known disabled staff, a huge number with a hidden disability wanting to disclose and an abundance of best practice since lockdown.
Mike will outline the business case. Social case. And fill the session with hints, tips and takeaways to positively change your workplace.
With bright red hair, a reputation for saying it how it is, and her unique sense of style, Debi smashes the corporate mould. And it’s this style that makes her so successful at connecting with people, inspiring and motivating them.
“It is said that a great culture starts with a vision and a purpose. If like Places for People, that vision and purpose is built on ‘helping to make a difference’ the foundations are already in place for creating that positive vibe in the workplace.
When you are an organisation that supports some of the most vulnerable people in society – be it homelessness, those fleeing domestic abuse or low-income households on the poverty line faced with a choice to eat or heat their homes – the culture of making a difference in the homes and communities where our customers live, becomes a vocation – because how could we as individuals not be compelled to want to support someone less fortunate or in real need of help?
There is always a place for making a difference in most aspects of life, and that in itself is hugely inspiring.
So who am I and how do I inspire others to thrive in the workplace? Motivate people when there’s pressure and challenge, ensure wellbeing, and really make a difference? And when does ‘styling-it-out’ really help too?
I’m Debi Marriott-Lavery and I’m passionate about finding creative ways to truly make a difference.”
The world of work is changing rapidly, resulting in small teams of communicators struggling to keep pace with employee engagement best practices and new developments in workplace technologies.

Nathan Hallam, Enterprise Account Director at Interact, will show you how the tactics employed by a diverse range of organisations can help you to consistently deliver engaging communications that resonate with your teams. You’ll walk away with insights on:
Fostering a workplace culture that promotes diversity, equity and inclusion is the right thing to do. It’s also good for business. But building a culture of DEI is difficult and many organizations are not getting it right or merely going through the motions to generate positive corporate PR. Done right, an effective DEI strategy fosters a culture of collaboration, creativity and innovation, and enables companies to attract and retain top talent. Pa Sinyan will share his unique insights and advice on how to create an authentic DEI culture that creates a real competitive advantage.
In this session, Patrick will cover:
In this panel session, David Beeney, Katrina Cheverton, Jane Austin and Pa M.K. Sinyan will be discussing how organisations can build well-being as a strategic priority.
Why does well-being need to be a strategic priority?
How do you build a culture with well-being at the heart of it?
And why are leaders so important to this process?
