The Green Skeptic Speaking at Temple/Fox School of Business
I'll be speaking today at Temple University's Fox School of Business and Management today.
I was invited by Fox Net Impact and the Office of Leadership Development and will be speaking on social enterprise and the new economy.
My talk, which I hope to post a link to once it is available, is about how entrepreneurs are changing the face of business and how the recent crises can, if we learn from them, drive us to build a better economic mousetrap.
As World Economic Forum founder Klaus Schwab said in his closing remarks at Davos last week, we now have an opportunity to put values back into capitalism.
I've long argued here that we need a new economy based on renewal, regeneration, and respect, rather than free credit, cheap oil and new housing. We can build a new economy based not on greed, but on innovation and prosperity through sustainability.
I look forward to sharing the talk with you -- and, if you're going to be there, please say hello.
