BCCJ Business Network Breakfast: Spring '09

Conscious Capitalism Part II: Responding to Recession, Managing Change

In response to interest in Conscious Capitalism at our winter breakfast, Professor Raj Sisodia returns to the Business Network to describe practical approaches to organizational change.  As budgets contract, organizations need new strategies for embracing diversity, sustainability, community, and other aspects of social responsibility.  The principles of conscious capitalism provide new approaches to running a business in these historic times.  The program will outline management and investment approaches that help organizations take practical steps to change, survive, and thrive.

Participants will be entitled to a $75 discount on registration for a conference on “Conceptualizing Conscious Capitalism” on May 28 and 29 at BentleyUniversity.  For more information on the conference, visit http://www.bentley.edu/conscious-capitalism/

The BCCJ Business Network convenes these leadership strategy sessions to share best practices, seed new ideas, and expand connections among a wide range of local businesses concerned with social responsibility.
