The Business of Doing Good
June 12, 2009
Hosted by Cheryl Esposito
Cheryl Esposito welcomes Michael Strong, CEO and Chief Visionary Officer of FLOW, a nonprofit dedicated to Liberating the Entrepreneurial Spirit for Good. In his book, Be the Solution: How Entrepreneurs & Conscious Capitalists Can Solve All the Worlds Problems, Michael poses these questions: What if the distinction between business & doing good vanished? If all those who engaged in business were committed to a deeper purpose, & all those committed to doing good were entrepreneurial and enterprising? What would it take for a world of seven billion people to solve all the world's problems? Our capacity to think has been “schooled” out of us. We need a radical shift of our education system to produce critical thinkers, creators & innovators to reshape business and commerce. Michael, and Whole Foods CEO, John Mackey, co-founded FLOW, bringing that all together, focusing it on the goals of sustainable peace, prosperity, & happiness for all. Join the conversation of possibilities!
