Imagine a World Where Companies Prosper, People Excel, and Nature Thrives...

July 2014

By Ann Dinan, Director of North American Operations, Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative (GRLI)

Exploring this ideal is the focus of Flourish & Prosper: The Third Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefit which will take place October 15–17, 2014 at the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University.

More than 1,000 CEOs, line managers and functional teams from companies in the United States, Europe, Central America, South America and beyond will gather for a dynamic two-and-a-half day Appreciative Inquiry-based summit. Over 100 workshop leaders, design summit facilitators and keynote speakers will share, explore, and discover how flourishing enterprises can inspire people, solve complex problems, collaborate across supply chains, and catalyze systems change for value and profit.

Flourish & Prosper will provide participants with opportunities to discover "What's next?" for business success and a healthier world. They will:

• Understand market expectations for companies to have a net positive impact
• Partner with complementary organizations to help solve global challenges
• Learn how to scale breakthrough innovations for systems change
• Strengthen one's sense of connection to purpose, others and the world
• Design creative workplaces and build practices aimed at personal wellbeing
• Develop actionable, sector-specific plans for the individual and the company

Flourish & Prosper is hosted by the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University. Collaborators include the Globally Responsible Leadership Initiative, the Fowler Center for Sustainable Value at Weatherhead, and the Academy of Management.
