Leveraging purpose for performance,
growth and resilience

How to win in the New Economy?

>> An overview of Phil’s speaking topics

We tend to think of profit and purpose as being like oil and water – that they don’t mix – however studies of leading companies show purpose is central to high-performance, growth and resilience.

The challenge is to put purpose into practice, otherwise our best people move on, our culture slips away and our customers no longer value what we do.

Switched on executives and leaders are asking:
▶︎ How do we develop our purpose-led approach?
▶︎ How do we link it to performance?
▶︎ How do we navigate this transition together?

And that’s where I come in, helping with:
▶︎ Developing purpose-led strategies
▶︎ Embedding purpose throughout organisations
▶︎ Forming effective collaborations and partnerships
▶︎ (Re)building buy-in and trust with stakeholders
▶︎ Tackling ‘wicked’ social 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 collectively take on ‘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)!
