Business has the power to make a hugely positive impact on the world. I would like to invite you to an extraordinary upcoming event – the Fourth Global Forum for Business as an Agent of World Benefitin Cleveland, Ohio, June 14 – 16. It will bring together executives, entrepreneurs, academic thought leaders and change agents who are committed to flourishing enterprise and who want the opportunity to work in real-time on their existing priority initiatives.


Come discover why flourishing enterprise is the key to great performance. Meet and be inspired by exemplary leaders and business as a force for good. Compress time and resources in breakout sessions designed to advance your projects and the purpose to which you are most committed.


There will be a working group at the forum on Transforming Business Education. Ron Fry, Sandra Waddock, and Jonas Haertle will co-lead this working group.


You will be using Appreciative Inquiry ― the strength-based whole system method originated at Case Western Reserve University and now practiced around the world ― to powerfully address some of the key issues facing business today, including:


  • Retaining and inspiring talented new generations at work
  • Meeting growing consumer demand for products with positive social impact
  • Designing environments that foster greater creativity, innovation and enduring financial value.


You will be joining other academic thought leaders; business leaders and organizations in an action-oriented event designed to produce customized, pragmatic outcomes. Our value proposition is that it will inspire and engage you in career growth that is purpose driven and tailored to your needs.


This year we will be limiting participation to 400 people and expect the event to sell out in advance. Please register now at the 4GF website using the special 25 percent discount code FLOURISH25.
