Conscious Business Collaboration
It’s heart-warming to acknowledge that conscious business offshoots are alive, well and flourishing in the UK.
In the last 10 years I have had the privilege to work with many organisations and initiatives promoting more conscious forms of business. These have included the B Team, WBCSD, World Blu, Breakthrough Capitalism, Future 500, Sustainable Brands and 1% for the Planet. But what more could be done, if these organisations had the opportunity to collaborate together?
Yes, these and other such organisations have had success in collaborating across certain boundaries. But I believe there is the potential for something greater. And that is what Future Considerations, in partnership with Conscious Capitalism UK wish to explore. The potential for collective impact when conscious business collaborates and creates together.
We held a one day event on the 22nd March to inquire around the central question: “What could we do together that we can’t do separately, to have the impacts that we desire?” We invited conscious business associations, entrepreneurs, business for ‘good’ movements and business leaders who wish to explore and co-create with us.
We are not seeking to create a new organisation nor asking anyone to join ours. There is no agenda. The output could be nothing. Or it could be everything.
The day was facilitated by Gina Hayden, Clement Hopkin and Jennifer Wilson from Conscious Capitalism and Jon Freeman and myself from Future Considerations.
Our intention was simply to hold a collective space true to the purpose and spirit of convening, collaboration and emergent conversations for new-economics and better business networks. And by holding space and encouraging quality conversations, we hope to facilitate the creation of extraordinary ways to collaborate and multiply the impact that we can have collectively on business and society.
I hope to be there.
I feel you will add immense value to the discussion. I really hope you can be there.
Sounds very interesting. Is it possible to participate virtually? I am based in Manila?
Thank you for your interest. We haven’t designed the meeting for virtual attendance on this occasion. We will share our findings through the blog after the event.
Would you like to connect with me by email – firstname.lastname@example.org and we could explore you interest more specifically and look for opportunities where we could include you virtually.
