Bill Morris, CEO, Blue Star Recyclers

Bill Morris found out what it was like to try to find productive work and be told that you can't join a team. Maybe that is why he relates to adults with autism and other similar challenges. Bill saw a way to create a very impressive win-win-win-win business model and 10 years in he has a growing company that is providing gainful employment for scores of people that would not otherwise have had it, and saving taxpayers an estimated $2 Million in the process.

Danny Openden, President and CEO, Southwest Autism Research and Resource Center

Danny knew the power of his personal purpose, but when he took a position in a new organization, he faced a tough situation. Should he compromise for the sake of not rocking to boat, or should he double down and risk termination? Danny's story is an excellent example of how someone who is not in a leadership position can leverage their purpose, and bring their organization along.

Rejecting Trade-Off Thinking with Cascade Engineering

For more roughly 40 years, Cascade Engineering has been pushing the envelope - not just in its many engineering innovations, but in how it creates value for all of its stakeholders, not just its shareholders.

Stakeholder Management with Dr. R. Edward Freeman

Taking care of shareholders first is, in fact, a suboptimal way to take care of them. For more than 30 years, we’ve known that businesses have far greater financial success when they focus on creating value for all of their stakeholders: customers, employees, suppliers, the environment and the communities in which they operate and shareholders. This is easier said than done of course, and who better to answer your questions on this topic than the founding father of Stakeholder Theory. Dr. R. Edward Freeman has been leading this conversation for decades and can help you get the theory in to practice. This event is open to all, but we only have space for 100 so register now.
