Purposeful Business: The Evidence and the Implementation
- Extra Reading
Do businesses exist to make profits, or to serve a purpose? This talk will present rigorous evidence showing there need be no trade-off between purpose and profit, contrary to conventional wisdom.

The talk will highlight how change cannot be piecemeal but involves holistic reform across many dimensions of a company.
