I am the Founder of The Slow School of Business and Carolyn Tate & Co. I’m most passionate about bringing a higher purpose than profit to the business world. I believe that every company can do good AND make money and that deep in our hearts we all have a desire to make a positive impact on humanity and the planet.
That’s why I’m a founding member of Conscious Capitalism Australia and my company is a certified B Corporation.
As an author, speaker and community builder, I’d felt increasingly inspired to create something that’s desperately needed in today’s business sphere: a learning environment which unites the principles of mindfulness, connectedness, social enterprise and sound commercial practice.
A core tribe of co-visionaries who were just as keen as I to turn this idea into reality, came together over subsequent months. Since then, we’ve co-created Slow School into a vibrant community of change-makers, and the momentum continues to build.
My hopes, outlooks and business approaches are discussed in my whitepaper Profit on Purpose, as well as in my books Small Business Big Brand, Marketing Your Small Business for Dummies, Unstuck in Provence (a personal memoir) and Conscious Marketing. As a professional speaker and facilitator I endeavour to contribute authentic, challenging and highly engaging dialogue to every conversation.
My story and the story of Slow School have been featured in a number of newspapers and magazines including Business Review Weekly (BRW), The Age, The Herald Sun and Slow Living Magazine. I’d love for us to get to know each other!
