Leading positive social change through business – William Buck shares its story

What drives an organisation to take the leap from good to to great and sustainable success? At the very heart of this, you will find Conscious Leadership with a passion for creating positive change.

We welcome William Buck Director, Chris Brown, and Illuminate Group Business Strategy Consultant, Neville Smith, to discuss the conscious journey William Buck has undertaken.

William Buck’s organisational philosophy of “Changing Lives” is an articulation of the way the firm has been doing business for 120 years, and of its promise to continue to do so in the future.

We are more than just advisors, we aspire to create positive change in the lives of our clients and our people” has driven innovation and transformation; positioning the business as one of the most progressive accountancy firms in Australia & New Zealand.

This promises to be an enlightening and inspiring morning on the topic of conscious leadership, illuminating our own path from good toward greatness and sustainable success.

“Greatness is not a function of circumstance. Greatness is a matter of conscious choice”

– Jim Collins, Good to Great.

Leadership matters a great deal, and the reason it matters is broader than organisational performance. The quality of our leaders affects the quality of our lives. Every good leader contributes in ways, big and small, toward making the world a better place – one day, one life, and one company at a time.”

– John Mackey and Raj Sisodia in their book “Conscious Capitalism – Liberating the Heroic Spirit of Business”
