Make a meaningful impact at the first B Corp Festival, in September 2024.

We are using Louder than Words: B Corp Festival as a platform to accelerate the voice and presence of the youngest generation in our community. Apply to our Young Host Academy and we’ll give you the training and confidence you need to be an on-stage pro. You will learn and practise skills that will be useful in all areas of your professional and personal life. 

There are just six places available in The B Corp Festival Young Hosts’ Academy, giving you the skills to excel on stage. 

The course is designed and delivered by pending B Corp The Attendee Experience Company (atex).

What happens at The B Corp Festival Young Hosts’ Academy?

You’ll join online training workshops, meeting the other students in the programme.  Once confident, you’ll have the opportunity to hone your skills, and get ready for the festival, by moderating a session or stage at The Meetings Show in London in June.  We will then select one student to join our professional emcee (host) as a co-host on the main stage at the festival, in front of approx. 1,700 people and live broadcast to more than 1,000.  If you’re not chosen to be on the main stage, you will still play a significant role, moderating or hosting some of the other activities at the Festival’s afternoon fringe sessions.

B Lab believes an equitable and inclusive work environment and a diverse, empowered team are key to achieving our mission. We are committed to equality of opportunity, to being fair and inclusive, and to being a place where all belong. 

We therefore particularly encourage applications from candidates who are from underrepresented and marginalised communities, including People of Colour and under-represented ethnicities, women or female-identified, people with disabilities and LGBTQI+.
