Since 2005, The ‘London Knot’ has operated as a network for individuals from across all sectors, who relished the opportunity to meet, share insights, ideas and impactful experiences. Its purpose was to create events and activities for those with enquiring minds and an interest in ethical, sustainable approaches to business and society. In 2017 it moved to a new home in Omnicom and The ONE HUNDRED Agency, the world’s first multi-disciplinary collective supporting corporates and causes worldwide.
