Business Impact for Good (BIG)

The Conscious Company Global Leaders Forum

San Francisco, CA

June 7 - 9, 2017

Where the conscious business movement comes to unite

It’s time to go BIG. Act big as company. Be big as a leader. And coalesce the movement in a BIG and impactful way. At the intersection of sustainable business, conscious leadership, and social impact is YOU, the conscious business leader. The leader who cares about the planet, our fellow human beings, and the mindful awareness and compassion needed to lead in today’s world. Now, more than ever, we business leaders are being called to ACT and ADVOCATE in ways we never imagined.

What’s Happening at the Forum?

Nothing like you’ve ever seen. This forum is about the experience — an intimate, curated group of leaders discussing what matters most to each of their journeys, their companies, and the greater good of the world. Expect to see cause-based councils and coalitions form right in front of you — and maybe even make some friends for life.

We will learn together. We will share together. We will celebrate together. And we will explore ways to make ourselves, our workplaces, our communities, and our world better, together. The agenda includes:

  • Convening the leaders and key influencers of the conscious business movement to create common ground and shared impact
  • Best Practices and insights on creating cohesive company culture and attracting and retaining talent in the new economy
  • Shared learning and ideation with your fellow changemakers and peers through highly curated, facilitated, and intimate group experiences
  • Inspirational TED-style presentations and Q&A sessions with those doing the most innovative work in the space
  • Values-based leadership discussion forums to accelerate our own conscious leadership journeys
  • Action-oriented learning from thought-leaders and the collective wisdom of peers to generate fresh ideas and identify up-and-coming trends
  • Personal development workshops on managing the stress of work-life integration and finding more fulfillment in work
  • Peer group collaboration to collectively make a larger impact in cause areas such as environmental protection, human rights, and economic inclusion.

Together, as leaders, we will be working on the joint solutions to the big issues of today such as:

Environmental Sustainability

  • Climate Change
  • Environmental protection
  • Food and agriculture

Human Rights

  • Worker’s rights
  • Gender equality
  • Refugee and immigration policy

  • Socioeconomic divide and poverty
