Third Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit


Flourish & Prosper: The Third Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit explores how cutting-edge innovators and forward-thinking leaders are moving beyond traditional notions of social responsibility and sustainability. Participants will examine and embrace the new spirit of business—the shift to “full-spectrum flourishing.”

Unlike typical business conferences, Flourish & Prosper will offer participants the opportunity to learn from exceptional change agents through groundbreaking workshops with a “design studio format” using the world-renowned Appreciative Inquiry Summit Method. Keynotes and session leaders will be a mix of Fortune 500 CEOs, world leaders, entrepreneurs, creative thinkers and management educators. The 2.5 day schedule includes keynote plenary sessions, sector-specific breakouts designed to produce actionable plans, CEO panels, interactive workshops and roundtable dialogues. Participants will:

•    develop actionable, sector-specific plans for use in their own companies

•    interact with business leaders pursuing world changing innovations

•    understand rising market expectations for companies to have a “net positive” impact

•    strengthen their sense of connection to purpose, others and the world

•    build personal and team practices designed to inspire and engage


CEOs, Line Managers, Division Heads, Functional Directors, Managers with Profit & Loss responsibility, Heads of Sustainability, and individuals with responsibility for corporate strategy, culture and change from diverse industries including Food and Agriculture, Energy, Management Education, Cities, Transportation, Finance, and Health and Wellbeing
