The Alliance Center is pleased to partner with the Colorado Chapter of Conscious Capitalism in hosting a panel event on October 27, 2015 from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm.

Colorado already demonstrates leadership in Sustainable Agriculture.  It's time to share the best practices that we can all endorse and adapt -- from food production and distribution, to retail and service  whether we're attending as consumers or savvy businesses looking to improve our multiple bottom lines.

In this inspiring panel discussion, four Colorado leaders use the Conscious Capitalism lens to share how their organizations implement business practices that elevate the quality of life for all stakeholders. You'll hear from:

-John-Paul Maxfield, Founder and CEO, Waste Farmers  
-Hunter Lovins, Founder and President, Natural Capitalism Solutions
-Seleyn DeYarus, CEO, Best Organics Inc.
-Dr. Jeffrey Su, Savory Network Hub Leader, Savory Institute

Moderated by:
Blake Angelo, Manager of Food System Development
Office of Economic Development, City and County of Denver

Look at your plate and consider the old adage: You are what you eat. Let's take it a step further: food is at the heart of sustainability. It's connected to all environmental issues from energy and transportation, to water and land use, to chemical pollution and social justice. Now look at your plate again and consider this: What you put on your plate is a powerful social and political expression.

The business practices used in every stage of bringing food from farm to table make all the difference.  Conscious Capitalism is a business framework that emphasizes four pillars for a new business-as-usual that places at its core the goal of elevating humanity.  Businesses that work to achieve a higher purpose; create value all of their stakeholders, including the environment and the communities they call home; proactively create a corporate culture that is consistent with human thriving; and emphasize the importance of conscious leadership greatly outperform their peers on financial terms and much more.

Colorado's population is booming, the state's foodie culture grows by the day, and, in our arid climate, the impact of agriculture is undeniably vast.   The food industry is changing:  food production can serve not just our survival needs, and not just a profit motive.  In Colorado many companies and individuals are leading the conscious evolution of this industry by seeking a purpose beyond profit- a purpose that increases quality of life for all living things.  These leaders are demonstrating the pillars of Conscious Capitalism.

Find out from successful Colorado leaders:
-Specific examples of how their organization's purpose guides overall business strategy/model
-Examples of excellent stakeholder value creation, tough moments for leaders to take the "high road"
-Their biggest challenge to become a conscious leader in business and practical suggestions as to how leaders can become more conscious
-How they built their organizational culture and the value of that for business, the individuals who work there, and other stakeholders

Join us on October 27th, from 6:00 pm-8:00 pm at The Alliance Center to explore your appetite for this topic.
