As we look back on this year, 2017 has been extraordinary for Conscious Company Media. A few highlights that we wanted to celebrate with our community include:
1. The Launch of Conscious Company Media
In January, we rebranded from Conscious Company Magazine to Conscious Company Media as our brand expanded beyond just the print magazine. With this, we launched a series of new products including webinars, e-learning, events, and a new website: consciouscompanymedia.com.
2. The Conscious Company Leaders Forum
On June 7 – 9, 2017, we hosted our first major conference, the Conscious Company Leaders Forum. This sold-out gathering was inspired by bringing all of the industry groups — or “tribes” — together for the first time, including ASBC, Conscious Capitalism, B Lab, Opportunity Collaboration, BALLE, SVN, and others who came together under one roof. We had 31 speakers and had attendees come in all the way from Australia, Brazil, China, Japan, France, Nicaragua, and Beirut.
3. Conscious Company Magazine
In 2017, we published six issues of Conscious Company Magazine. Highlights from this year’s issues included our first-ever industry guide that provides a full overview of the who’s who in the sustainable and conscious business movements; the inaugural Conscious Leaders Awards, which awarded seven exceptional individuals in the categories of lifetime achievement, personal journey, conscious workplace, and global impact; and a comprehensive survey of business leaders on how business can come to the rescue in the absence of political will.
We’ve Got News!
Our final highlight of the year is a big one: We’re delighted to officially announce that Conscious Company Media has been acquired by the SOCAP Group! Through this merger, we are now part of a family of brands at the intersection of business, money, and meaning, including the world-renowned impact investing conference SOCAP (Social Capital Markets). We will be moving forward as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the SOCAP Group and nothing significant about your experience will change, but we do know that this will strengthen our ability to create impact and reach a much broader audience, all while working in coordination with like-minded brands that are doing incredible work in the world. We truly wouldn’t have pursued this merger if it hadn’t seemed like a match made in heaven, and we’re confident that, in the SOCAP Group, we’ve found the perfect partners to take Conscious Company Media to the next level.
As we look toward 2018, our team is gearing up to bring you even more content and events to help inspire you on your purpose-driven professional journey, including:
On January 8 – 12, we are partnering with Thrive and Conscious Leaders Academy to bring you this week-long, virtual education event at the intersection of conscious leadership, workplace culture, and sustainable business. Join thousands of business leaders, entrepreneurs, and visionaries for this first-of-its-kind global event. Oh yeah, and did we mention it’s completely FREE!
We are thrilled to announce that we will be hosting the premier gathering of female leaders in conscious business on February 20 – 22 at 1440 Multiversity. We’re curating a powerhouse group of hundreds of female leaders to share wisdom, find inspiration, and connect around best practices for leading and thriving in the conscious business world. If you or someone you know belongs at this event, register before December 31, 2017 to get our best ticket prices.
Following the success of our first event, we will be hosting the next Conscious Company Leaders Forum on June 6 – 8, 2018 at 1440 Multiversity. We have just opened up the application process for this invitation-only event and expect to sell out quickly. If you would like to join us, apply today to reserve your spot.
As we close this year out, our entire team wants to express heartfelt gratitude to you, our wonderful supporter. As we imagine a better world where all businesses have a higher purpose beyond profit, we know that we could not work toward this future without your support, guidance, and encouragement. Thank you for everything and we wish you and yours an incredible new year.
With heartfelt gratitude,
~ The Conscious Company Media team
