Corporate Leaders to Gather in Calgary in October 2014 to Discuss the Role of Business in Addressing Social Issues and Sustainable Development
CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – June 25, 2014) – More than 300 business leaders and students are expected to gather at Ambrose University College in Calgary for the Soul of the Next Economy Forum on October 3-4, 2014 to network, share best practices, and discuss future directions for sustainable domestic and international development, corporate social responsibility, and social enterprise.
Keynote speakers include Wayne Dunn, Professor of Practice in CSR at McGill University and President, CSR Training Institute and Peggie Pelosi, founder and CEO, ORENDA Connections and author of Corporate Karma.
“The lines between the business, public, and charitable sectors continue to blur,” says Randy Poon, forum co-chair and chair of the Ambrose business program. “Business is no longer simply about profit margins. There is an expectation for business to play a meaningful and active role in addressing social and environmental issues. This forum is an opportunity to discuss where we’ve been and where things are headed.”
