Navigating the new economy

How to Win in the New Economy?

The social and ecological challenges we face are driving seismic shifts in consumer preferences and community expectations. What’s worked for businesses in the past won’t work in the future, so, how do you respond?

Leading companies are using purpose-led approaches to increase their resilience, performance and competitive advantage. This is what it takes to win in the new economy, and leaders are asking:
▶︎ How do we develop our purpose-led approach?
▶︎ How do we use it to improve profitability and performance?
▶︎ How do we navigate this transition together?

As the author of Connecting Profit with Purpose and a specialist in this area, I help executives and leaders:
▶︎ Develop purpose-led approaches
▶︎ Find new productivity and growth opportunities
▶︎ Form effective collaborations and partnerships
▶︎ (Re)build buy-in and trust with stakeholders
▶︎ Tackle ‘wicked’ problems together

As a former research head overseeing $50 billion of investments, I became frustrated with poor corporate behaviours and symbolic acts of charity. In 2007, I left that ‘comfortable’ life to find a better way – one where taking on social and environmental challenges is part of core and profitable business, and where people and organisations work together more effectively.

Since then I’ve pioneered work in the ‘shared value’ field by guiding organisations, assisting projects and collating case studies, working with small-medium enterprises through to multi-national corporations and everything in between, as well as helping public, private and social sector organisations tackle ‘wicked’ social problems.

My speaking topics include:
▶︎ Winning in the New Economy
▶︎ Putting Purpose into Practice
▶︎ Demystifying Shared Value Strategies
▶︎ Leading Collaborative Change
▶︎ How to Contribute Something Great (Because Doing Good is Not Enough)!
