Thinkers50 is delighted to be working with Warwick Business School and the Harvard Business Review to host a series of events on the leading edge of world-changing ideas. The inaugural event — Conscious Capitalism — was held at The Shard, London’s iconic glass tower, on July 3, 2018. The event featured Timothy Henry, a trustee and co-founder of Conscious Capitalism Inc., and the co-author of The Conscious Capitalism Field Guide; and Fred Dahlmann, Associate Professor of Strategy and Sustainability at Warwick Business School.
Conscious Capitalism is a philosophy – along with a set of guiding principles – based on the simple idea that business is about more than making a profit. It is an approach built on the fundamental, universal truth that people aspire to more – to meaning and purpose, and to flourishing and fulfilment.
Four core principles underpin the Conscious Capitalism approach to building and leading businesses: higher purpose, stakeholder orientation, conscious leadership, and conscious culture. And since the publication of the original Conscious Capitalism manifesto they have been widely adopted by leading companies around the world.
