Why You Should Attend the Shared Value Leadership Summit
Submitted by Shared Value Initiative
The Shared Value Initiative believes that business has the power to change the world for the better and we're not alone. Join thought leaders, practitioners and intrapreneurs from around the world for the 2016 Shared Value Leadership Summit at the Conrad New York on May 10-11, 2016 to discuss how global companies are driving and enabling solutions to some of the world's most pressing problems. So why should you clear your calendar and be in New York for the year's "can't miss" shared value event? We're glad you asked - here are just a few reasons why the Shared Value Leadership Summit should be a stop on your shared value journey.
The world is serious about profit and purpose - From news rooms to board rooms the world is talking about the need for business to align its profit and purpose-driven missions. We've gathered some of the best and brightest from all sectors—Dr. Jim Yong Kim - The World Bank, Alan Murray - Fortune Magazine, Helena Foulkes - CVS/pharmacy, Angela Glover Blackwell - Policy Link and David Blood - Generation Investment, just to name a few—for discussions that will highlight the model for collective action in shared value; investor perspectives on long-termism; the business case for sustainability; and the role of the UN Sustainable Development Goals in setting an opportunity agenda for shared value solutions and strategies. And don't forget fellow attendees - we've built in plenty of networking opportunities and our online attendee list gives you a chance to see who's coming so you can make the most of your time at the Summit.
Going it alone isn't an option - Tackling the world's most pressing challenges calls for partnerships that are a hallmark of the shared value approach. During plenary discussions and interactive lab sessions that give you a chance to apply your learning and expertise, leaders from the private and public sector will be on hand to dig into and provide real world examples of the relationships needed as more and more corporate players add issues such as hunger, financial inclusion and global health to their business agendas.
Sharing stories builds a stronger movement - Implementing new strategies requires collective thinking and co-creation with people across the value chain. This year more than ever the speakers on the Summit stage represent every step in the value chain – you’ll get perspectives from CEOs, investors, public sector leaders and our crowdsourced Storytellers, practitioners who are successfully applying shared value projects in their organizations worldwide.
