Conscious Capitalism Online event sponsored by CT Chapter

Doing good is great business. Much of that good is being done 'unconsciously' by companies simply making products and services that people value, providing jobs, and generating profits. However, business can also be done much more consciously, with higher purpose and optimal value creation for all stakeholders. It's called "Conscious Capitalism". In industry after industry, today's best companies have discovered this--and they're leaving their short-sighted competitors in the dust. 

Come join the IERG CT and Conscious Capitalism CT chapters to hear from a panel of four leaders who are practicing Conscious Capitalism with their companies and helping to drive commerce globally. 

Presented by Glen McDermott, Kathy Saint, Gavin Watson, and Paul Murphy.
