My Message to CEO’s, Business Leaders, HR Managers

A new kind of citizen and consumer is emerging, much more aware of the global concerns on Sustainability. There is a growing consensus that the concept of "Responsible Business" has become an unstoppable Macro Trend, and Companies need to have their strategies very much aligned with what this new challenge brings. If you are comfortable with adhering to the NMC "Responsible Business Credo”, then I believe I can be of help raising its awareness within your organisation. Since this is a fairly new Trend, what I suggest is that I come and talk to your teams for a couple of hours. My interactive Talk session will include:

  • "Responsible Business" reaches far beyond Environmental concerns (ranging from Ethics to Local Communities, the way Employees are treated to Diversity, from Gender and Race discrimination to the way Suppliers treat their work forces).

  • What is the context and why did we come this far?

  • What is the real meaning of RB? Why is it important to be integrated in Corporate Strategies? 

  • Is there a clear Business Case for Action? What and How to Measure and Communicate?

  • What could be in it for your Company?

All topics to be illustrated with Case Studies of Success (and Failures). Nestle/Unilever/Coca Cola/Apple/Ford/Lego.


After the Talk, and only if you consider worthwhile “deepening” the knowledge to foster Action within your organisation, you could then consider running a two days’ Workshop that would go like this…
