About Slow Dinners
The Slow School of Business (Slow School) is a people-powered learning community dedicated to building purpose-driven and prosperous businesses that make the world a better place. We come together each month over a meal and a glass of wine to learn something new and make deep connections. At Slow School everyone pitches in, that’s why we ask you to bring your ideas, your passion and a plate and/or a bottle of something special to share.
About our topic – The Purpose-driven Business
According to Gallup, 70% of people across the globe are disengaged at work. It would seem that we’re all making a ‘dying’ instead of a ‘living’ at work. How do we turn this tragic statistic around? The answer lies in reorienting people and organisations towards a higher purpose than profit.
At this dinner, you’ll get to play with a couple of purpose tools that Carolyn has developed to help you craft your own company purpose statement and bring it to life.
What you will learn:
- What purpose actually is and why it’s imperative to drive profitability and prosperity.
- How to write your own purpose statement and use it to drive vision, mission and values.
- How you can use Manifestos’s to bring your purpose to life.
