Event Description

Please join some 30 other people for a free post-publication event, jointly sponsored by AMED, the Centre for Progressive Leadership, LMU and the Conscious Business network.

Conscious Business (CB)/Conscious Capitalism has attracted a lot of attention since the 2008 crash.  CB offers us refreshing insights into how we might lead businesses profitably and sustainably. 

Some, like John Mackey, CEO of Whole Foods Market, and Raj Sisodia have addressed the question by focusing on larger organisations and the big picture*.  

Today we want to offer another perspective: the dilemmas, challenges and joys that people face in their day-to-day attempts to practise conscious business.

Recently, we invited a number of people to consider their own conscious business practice - particularly the challenges they face in making it a part of their day-to-day reality.  Their reflections and arrangements appeared in two recent special editions of eOrganisations and People, the quarterly online Journal of AMED.  Copies of both editorials are available by clicking on the links below. 

Drawing on these insights and on our explorations of CB over the last twelve months, we are eager to discuss with you what conscious business means, consider its potential and identify what might hold it back.  We plan a mix of plenary sessions and rich conversations in smaller groups, and we hope you can join us. Afterwards, we can continue our conversations in the pub opposite LMU.

At the last count, I believe that we have some 30 participants, Rob.  So there should be some lively conversations.  Looking forward to it.  Best wishes.  Bob

Hi, only a week or so to go.  We have quite a few people registered to come along so it should be a good evening.
