Murdoch University Panel: Is Your Workplace Dysfunctional?

Wednesday 25 October 2017
5.15 – 7.30PM

Register Now

Details:

Work should be meaningful and rewarding yet so many organisational cultures make life difficult for employees. Internal politics, conflicting priorities and damaging behaviour have the potential to create toxic work environments. Today’s businesses have an unprecedented opportunity and incentive to become a force for good in the world, providing meaning and value for employees, customers and partners. In the final of four discussion events co-hosted by Murdoch University’s MasterClass and Conscious Capitalism we explore:

  • What’s involved in consciously co-creating a fulfilling work culture;
  • The relationship between culture and financial performance; and
  • How we can engage employees in the cultural change journey.

Food & drink:
Finger food generously provided by Murdoch University, a proud Partner of Conscious Capitalism.

Venue:
Room 460.2.031, Economics Commerce & Law Building

Global Purposeful Leadership Summit

27 Feb – 1 Mar 2018

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.

Purpose Project Book Launch

Thursday 6 July 2017
6:00pm-8:00pm

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

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