Terrific Trends for Enlightened Capitalists: Fixing Hunger, Poverty, War, and Catastrophic Climate Change for Fun and Profit

Starting with the idea that we continuously do things that used to be considered “impossible” accomplishments, that we now take for granted—from iPods to space travel, from organizing to save a local mountain to a South Africa emerging out of apartheid and into democracy—the talk demonstrates that hunger, poverty, war, and climate are all resource issues. Once we look at these crises that way, they become solvable. 
Then, this inspirational and empowering talk moves into the advantages to business of solving the biggest problems of our time. Motivating not through guilt or shame but by combining the vision of a better world with the power of profitable business, this talk demonstrates that real change is not only possible, but profitable.

Examples (curated for each individual audience) may include:

A company whose solar-powered LED lanterns are a ladder out of poverty for thousands of households in Africa and Asia

A fair-trade organic coffee roaster who funds village-led community development projects that attack poverty and injustice at their roots

A major carpet company that not only shifted its entire enterprise toward sustainability but slashed costs by initiating eco-friendly, economical manufacturing processes

A retailer that created a NEW $15 billion/year market, selling organic food to people who for the most part don’t go to Whole Foods (the name of the company will shock some in the audience)

A company that makes a soccer ball into an electric charging station: play for 30 minutes, and charge a device for up to 3 hours

A major UK department store whose soaring profits after publicly measuring 100 sustainability indicators caused the company to add another 100 metrics

A solution to mobility for wheelchair users that replaces bulky, fuel-inefficient, and slow paratransit with individual transportation the size of a Smartcar

Numerous creative ventures that are pushing the boundaries of physics and biology, developing new “biomimicry” products and systems that model nature’s principles: high materials strength, waste-as-input, adaptability, and other state-of-the-art, innovative approaches to the most challenging issues that we humans and our planet must solve.

Create the Business Case for Sustainability Your CFO will Love

Chief Financial Officers (CFOs) are responsible for the financial wellbeing of their organizations. They probably acknowledge that environmental and social concerns deserve attention, but not at the expense of the current and long-term financial health of their companies or institutions. Surprisingly, many organizations are discovering that they can enhance their financial situation by performing better on their environmental and social goals.

Based on Bob’s new free, open-source Sustainability ROI Workbook, this presentation shows how sustainability professionals can frame the business case for sustainability initiatives in the CFO’s familiar return on investment (ROI) and cost-benefit analysis language. Bob uses business and leadership experience from his 34-year career at IBM Canada to help sustainability champions ensure that the direct and indirect measurable benefits for any category of sustainability initiative provide compelling justifications for taking action.

The STRESS-Factor In Change: An Enlightened Capitalist’s Choice
Take Control Of That Silent Killer Called STRESS

Stress is a Fact of Life. It slowly creeps up on you and then controls your thoughts and actions, distorting your behavior and reaction to everyday stimuli. It is the source of many illnesses and deaths. It is compounded by a diversity of stress-related situations we encounter on a day-to-day basis and, many times, are even difficult to discern or recognize. Stress is defined as a mental or emotional disruptive influence that tends to deform your body. Research documents that stress kills!

Let’s put our lives back into our own hands and take control of that silent killer. It is incumbent upon us, as Enlightened Capitalists, that we learn to address this issue proactively rather than reactively. This session will provide you with the tools and strategies to deal reactively (relative to your current stress) as well as proactively to ward off, to a large extent, potential causes of stress. Understanding how to handle stress in your personal and professional life will allow you to control your mental and emotional well-being.

Take a Stand! Be an active participant in the game of life, not a spectator.

Imagining a New Energy Company

Imaginea has the vision to create a new kind of energy company - one that values Planet, People, Profit - to find "AND" solutions. We intend to transform the current fossil fuel industry into producing Clean Hydrocarbons (produced without emissions, without pollution and without the use of fresh water). We want to change from an "extractive" industry to a regenerative economy ecosystem. 

We want to change from a mechanical thinking to biological thinking. We want to change companies where information is guarded to where it is shared and leveraged. We want to move from transactional to transformative. To do that we have to change paradigms, mindsets - we have to have a deep level of collaboration and we must advance technology that makes all three better (Planet, People, Profit). This presentation will showcase how we intend on getting to Clean Hydrocarbons and what the future can look like. The key takeaways will be a) spreading the word about this new ecosystem we want to build and to find people to join us on this journey b) catalyze people to work on the problems that need solving c) raise the consciousness needed to change the world

Generate your Noble Cause: Empowerment through Purpose

We live in uncertain times—more bad news than any one person can absorb, more change than anyone can keep up with. In the face of this unease, we easily fall into survival mode. When that happens, there is a predictable future of individual concerns, competition, and win/lose strategies that degrades culture, performance, and the very experience of being a team.

The pathway to a sustainable, high-performing culture is to discover and acknowledge that predictable future and choose powerfully between what almost certainly will be, and what could be. In that moment of choice, you can ask yourself, "What is the reason for existence of our organization? What's it all for?" And in answering that question, you will be able to uncover the noble cause that's always been there, just not articulated and made tangible. And therein lies a future that will move, touch, and inspire everyone within your organization.

Being Good in the Midst of Chaos

Leaders and businesses are needing to operate in a world of accelerating change, increased complexity and disruptive technologies. It is getting increasingly difficult to keep up with the change, let alone innovate and get ahead of it.

When leaders and managers feel out of control and powerless, a typical reaction and behavior is to create a controlling, depleting environment that robs the precious energy needed by the organization to thrive with change. It can also lead to overwhelm and burnout.

In the midst of the chaos, 'Being Good' is not only within the realm of our control but also ignites the energy of teams to collaborate, innovate and thrive.

In this presentation, you will learn...

  • How BE GOOD is the seat of authentic power and control in a world of accelerating change
  • How leader/manager beliefs and behaviors create the climate for either dysfunctional or high functioning teams 
  • 5 inner (Be Good) elements completely within your control that provide stability and capacity to thrive in the midst of chaos
  • Some awareness tools to assist you in identifying where you lose energy and capacity to thrive with change.

The Age of the Do Wellers (and why we need to talk a bit less about the Do Gooders)

We all love the companies and individuals that stand out for the good they do in the world. It’s at the heart of most societies, cultures and religions to encourage charity. But if we want to bring about the sort of systemic change the world needs, if we believe in ‘doing well by doing good’, then we need to have a more balanced conversation. We need to praise the ‘doing well’ as much as the ‘doing good’. We need to talk about ‘Capitalism’ as much as ‘Enlightened’. This presentation will talk about why the most successful social programs have not only had ‘doing well’ at their heart, but have been unapologetic in the way they talk about it. It will show how you can link ‘doing well’ more explicitly to CSR, sustainability and philanthropic programs, and so move them closer to the heart of your organisation’s strategy. And will give you four rules for being a ‘Do Weller’.
