In September, Phil and Lynne released their summary insights pack from series of conversations. The Insights Pack summarises the 15 episodes with 12 corporate professionals which examined the purpose roadmap, purpose and leader leadership and transformation. Here are a few observations:

  • Purpose is a compass for navigating complexity and must connect to strategic opportunity
  • CEOs must make a genuine commitment, it’s not a compliance activity
  • Stakeholders increasingly expect alignment between business and society, and
    they are demanding greater transparency
  • Embedding purpose in operations and KPIs is hard work that pays off
  • Don’t expect perfection, just get started!

Lynne Filderman noted, “Our conversations are with leaders not often in the spotlight who have a keen understanding what it takes embed purpose into organizations while meeting changing stakeholder expectations.”

Previous episodes featured: Bobbi Silten (Shared Value Initiative), Jennie MacLaughlin (Purpose Led Transformation), Rachel Hutchisson (Blackbaud), Megan Fielding (Nuveen), David Harrington (Strategist, ex-IAG), Brad Gurrie (SocialSuite), Whitney Dailey (Allison+Partners), Christine Holman(Non-Executive Director), Tim King (Melior Investment Management), Rik Haslam (Brandpie), Sarah Downie (Shared Value Project) and Ben Smithee (The Smithee Group).

Purpose is the new frontier for performance and competition in today's business landscape, and failing to adapt means companies risk being left behind.

Phil Preston, CEO of the Business Purpose Project and Lynne Filderman, Founder of Curation On Purpose LLC are pleased to announce the launch of a new virtual production, Corporate Conversations on Purpose (CCoP), a series of 30-minute virtual conversations with business leaders who offer their expertise and candid insights in navigating purpose-based transformations.

CCoP is meeting this critical moment in time as no one has all the answers nor is there a single prescribed way of dealing with the rapidly changing business environment and shift to the purpose economy.
