In July 2018, we announced that The Crowd in its existing form was winding down. Further to that announcement, our friends at think tank Common Vision have stepped forward to offer a new home for The Crowd and its vibrant community.

Common Vision (CoVi) has a wealth of experience convening expert communities to turn complex social and economic challenges into opportunities for public leadership.

Over the next few weeks the team at Common Vision will be reaching out to those of you who have joined our network as partners, speakers and supporters, to discuss plans and ideas for The Crowd moving forward.

After ten years of building a movement comprising almost 200 events and a community of 16,000 business leaders committed to sustainability, we are delighted that the team at Common Vision will continue to provide a home for The Crowd. I look forward to seeing the movement progress in the future.”
– Jim Woods, co-founder, The Crowd

The Crowd has always worked to inspire and connect leading minds in purposeful businesses. It is a pleasure to hand over this legacy to an organisation with a similar mission as well as a track record of delivering high-quality, impactful events that influence leadership and practice across a range of sectors.
– Luke Clarkson, former MD, The Crowd

Our own experience at Common Vision means that we understand the value of trusted relationships within and between professional communities and business leaders. We are excited to take on the legacy of The Crowd and continue to provide a forum for innovative and insightful dialogue on sustainability and wider responsible business issues. We are looking forward to consulting the community on your ideas for revitalising the work of The Crowd.”
– Caroline Macfarland, Director, Common Vision
