Conscious Capitalism: Liberating the Heroic Spirit Of Business

Capitalism has been extraordinarily successful over the past two centuries at raising human living standards, life expectancy and life satisfaction. But the old way is not working any more. The world has changed so much and people have evolved so rapidly that we need to bring a higher level of consciousness to the world of business. Conscious Capitalism is an emerging paradigm that realigns business to the emerging realities of our world. Conscious businesses deliver extraordinary financial performance while creating multiple kinds of positive value for all stakeholders: intellectual, physical, ecological, social, cultural, emotional and even spiritual.

Industry 4.0 and the Rebirth of American Manufacturing

Few industries suffer from so many misconceptions as does Manufacturing in present day America. For those without first-hand experience inside a modern factory, it is often thought that manufacturing is a dirty, dangerous, and dead-end place to work. But the reality is far different, with a clean floor and cutting edge technologies providing high degrees of automation and precision. Discover how manufacturing is evolving — and how leading education and workforce development providers are developing the human talent required.

For the Love of Cities: The Love Affair Between People and Their Places

Peter speaks about emotional engagement with PLACES – cities, towns, villages, schools and neighborhoods. Good things happen when more people become emotionally engaged with their places, when more people fall in love with those places. Peter talks about how to create the set of conditions where love is more likely to happen and how to encourage people to go from saying they love a place to actually doing something for that place. He talks about the importance of small, inexpensive and sometimes even silly expressions of that love for making great places.
