Conscious Leadership Series: “Business on a Mission: Purpose & Profit”
10% of event proceeds will go directly to Room to Read‘s children’s literacy programs. All attendees will receive a copy of John Wood’s latest book, Purpose, Inc.
Business on a Mission
A fallacy today: to have “purpose,” and to create social impact must be antithetical to capitalism, and at the exclusion of profitability.
In the dawning era of Conscious Capitalism, evidence is strong that a clear sense of purpose – and one oriented towards creating true shared value in society – is advantageous to a company’s bottom line.
John Wood, ex-Director of Microsoft’s Greater China region and Founder of Room to Read, is our next featured Conscious Leader.
In his latest book Purpose, Inc., John highlights companies who have used “purpose” to build stronger bonds with customers, win the war for talent, motivate employees and lower attrition rates, increase social media influence, and attract the best investors.
During this event, John will engage in an insightful and pragmatic dialogue with Karen Seymour, former Executive Director at Li & Fung Foundation and newly appointed Chief Purpose Officer at human at work.

The Conscious Leadership Series was launched in 2017 by the founders of Balance Potential, a Workplace Wellness solution provider in Hong Kong.
We believe leadership skills and organizational values must change to reflect a more human-centric, purpose-driven approach in order to create true cultures of well-being at work.
This event is organized in partnership with Room to Read, one of the world’s fastest growing nonprofits dedicated to transforming the lives of children in low-income communities through literacy and gender equality in education. To date, Room to Read has reached more than 16 Million children worldwide.
