Think Differently

“Successful companies change the ecosystem within which they are operating”


Tagged: , , , , ,

At the ‘The Purpose of Business’ conference hosted by the Quakers and Business group in London, November 2015, Prof. Colin Meyer (Said Business School) shared this reflection about successful companies.

The professor’s talk traced the evolution of business from early merchant trade through to the emergence of 21st century virtual giants like Google. He highlighted key changes, like the shift from tangible to intangible assets, and explored current examples of where directors are accountable for the delivery of societal benefits.

Whilst celebrating the tremendous creativity and capital value of pioneering new digital enterprises, he indicated the necessity for rebuilding trust and combining economic efficiency with ethics. He invited a consciously moral stance and pointed at the potential for a new age of Mindful Corporations to emerge.

In this context, we invite you to consider a question…

How can businesses operate with reference to both their own inner compass and to the wider ecosystems they touch?
