Participants will see Conscious Capitalism principles practically applied by looking at thriving firms that incorporate a focus on conscious business ideals. Leaving the seminar, participants will have a spark ignited in them to explore how they too can contribute to a world in which business is both practiced and perceived as a great force for good.
