Partner, Business & Society
Alastair Morton works in Brunswick’s Business & Society team where he focuses how companies can create social value through innovative action in their business, partnership programmes and advocacy campaigns – and through that show leadership, underpin license to operate and build trusted relationships.
Alastair is currently working on leading examples of social innovation programmes from companies – notably Cities Changing Diabetes, a programme initiated by diabetes manufacturer Novo Nordisk, which has been recognised by WEF and UN Global Compact, and Standard Chartered Bank’s efforts to fight financial crime.
He joined the Business & Society team from the global advertising agency, JWT, where he founded Ethos in London, which is the social change and corporate social responsibility practice at JWT. At JWT Ethos, Alastair worked with multinational companies, as well as with the public sector and social enterprise to develop the strategic and creative thinking to help them deliver social and environmental – as well as business – impact.
He also launched The Future Quotient report, which he co-authored with John Elkington, founder of the social innovation consultancy Volans. He holds a BA in Maths and Philosophy and a DPhil in Pure Mathematics from the University of Oxford.
