About this event

Whole Foods, Panera Bread, Costco, and Starbucks, just to name a few.  Each practices the principles of Conscious Capitalism. Each has outperformed the common industry financial and operational benchmarks by wide margins. 

So can we if we apply them to our work and businesses.

Join us for a fun and educational fireside chat with Wendy and several of the companies in the Collaboratory that are implementing Conscious Capitalism principles and the results they’ve achieved.  You will learn how to apply its principles in your business in order to grow and outperform your markets and competitors.

Conscious capitalism. What is it and why does it matter?  How can startup businesses both thrive and focus on elevating society, partners, investors, customers, employees, and the environment?  Join us as we explore the concept with Wendy Moomaw, CEO of Wendy Moomaw, Founder of the Conscious Collaboratory, and Executive Director of Conscious Capitalism of Central Md and learn how to implement Conscious Capitalism in our businesses.

As entrepreneurs, startups, and high growth companies, we are working to solve huge problems that society has with the purpose of making our world a better place while working to build phenomenally successful businesses for ourselves and others. 

Conscious Capitalism is a way of thinking about capitalism and business that liberates the heroic, caring spirit of helping all stakeholders, not just the business. It is a way of thinking about business that is more conscious of its higher purpose, its impact on the world, and the relationships it has with its various constituencies and stakeholders. The purpose of business is to produce profitable solutions to the problems of people and the planet. How can startup businesses both thrive and focus on elevating society, partners, investors, customers, employees, and the environment?

We want to create companies that attract and retain incredible employees, enthusiastic repeat customers, trusted vendors, partners, and happy supportive investors. Doing so provides the engine to drive growth and profitability beyond expectations. Yet we want to make a real "difference" in the world in which we live. 

Your key takeaways will be: 

***  Why it matters?

*** How do I apply its principles in my business tomorrow?

*** How do I create and grow a great company for all stakeholders using the principles of Conscious Capitalism?  

*** How do I apply its principles to outperform my competition?

We will have several well-known local and regional companies at the event to discuss how they have adopted Conscious Capitalism for the betterment of society and themselves.
