Rochester, NY /

Conscious Business Summit 5/2

Rochester Riverside Convention Center 123 East Main Street (map)

Social Entrepreneurship. Impact Investing. B-corps. Triple Bottom Line.  No matter what you call it, let's evolve the future of business.

Conscious Capitalism is based on 4 tenets: A Purpose beyond making profits; Conscious Leadership that are servant leaders and embody the purpose of the organization; Conscious Culture that values and engages employees; and a Stakeholder Orientation that balances the needs of employees, customers, suppliers, communities, the environment and stockholders (rather than prioritizing stockholders).  Research from Firms of Endearment shows that following these principles is good business! “Conscious” companies beat the S&P 500 by 8x over 10 years!

You may have heard the phrase "What gets measured gets improved." While profit is easy to measure, it's not the only thing that matters. How can we measure conscious business principles to get them higher on leaders' priority lists?

> Join us for breakfast and a morning keynote from Doug Rauch, former President of "Firm of Endearment" Trader Joe's.

> We'll hear from business leaders on how they use measurements like Triple Bottom Line, Great Places to Work, Cultural Values Assessments, B Corps and ETHIE Awards to "Measure What Matters."

> We'll get inspired by local social entrepreneurs

> Then, join us for lunch with Rochester Rotary to hear from Doug on his latest project, Daily Table. In the US, 40% of our food gets thrown out. Daily Table is trying to make sure that food instead goes to those that need it most.
