Sustainability is a reason and a result.

I was honoured to present the keynote address at the Association for Sustainability in Business Conference on the Gold Coast on 21st May 2012.

Although I don’t use slides in such presentations these are the slides provided to delegates that share the substance behind the stories shared.

My key points:
Profit is not a reason for being in business, rather a result of being good at business.

Sustainability is both a reason and a result.

We have crystal clear choices as illustrated in the slides..

What choices are you making?
