Good Business Fridays
Good Business Fridays are open conversations around what it means to lead a “good business.” How can we create economic and social value simultaneously, regardless of what sector or role we’re in? How do we look at solving problems as complex as the UN Global Goals?
Businesses (and other organizations) have an incredible set of assets: relationship assets, intellectual assets, innovation assets, financial assets, and a set of values. How can we blur boundaries between sectors and reconfigure relationships and assets in new and different ways to scale sustainable, positive impact?
Join our conversations. There's nothing to prepare. Just bring your curiosity and desire to learn how leaders lead good businesses and gift us your point of view.
As with all of our Uncommon Table conversations, come when you can, stay as long as you’d like. All are welcome.
Join the Conversation
Good Business Fridays are held Fridays from noon to 1:00 p.m. on Zoom.
