Purpose Project Book Launch

Thursday 6 July 2017
6:00pm-8:00pm

Register Now

Details:
There’s a growing body of evidence supporting the imperative of ‘purpose’ as the driver of a thriving workplace. Purpose is the primary principle of the Conscious Capitalism movement.
 Purpose answers the fundamental questions of “Why are we here? How are we being better for the world, not just the best in the world? What is the legacy we are leaving?”

Carolyn Tate, founding member of Conscious Capitalism Australia has been immersing herself in the concepts of higher purpose and consciousness in business for the last seven years. She’s developed the models, questions, practices and stories that will help you unearth, and bring to life, both company purpose and personal purpose.

She’s collated her work into a practical ‘how-to’ guide book – The Purpose Project and warmly invites you to join her at the launch of the book

Venue
The Provincial, 299 Brunswick Street, Fitzro, The Salon (upstairs)

Global Purposeful Leadership Summit

20-22 September 2017

Register Now

Details:
There is a growing global movement that is questioning the purpose of business and it’s role in our society. Creating a truly purposeful organisation requires determination and courage by leaders – and time. It takes a special kind of leader to put the interest of stakeholders before profit. And to create sustainable businesses, leaders need to reconsider how they are engaging their employees, customers, suppliers, partners and the communities they operate in. To create a truly purposeful and sustainable organisation, we need to look at aligning both internal and external stakeholders with the values and purpose of the organisation as well as understanding what are the external factors that can support the creation of a purposeful organisation. We hope you will join us at this summit to unleash business as a force for good in the world.

Venue:
Sydney CBD (TBC)

Cost:
Varied depending on number of days, and if you are booking a table.
