Published on

Business Value. It’s important. If we didn’t create value for our business we wouldn’t have very many jobs. Or an economy. Or little sandwiches that are nicely cut into triangles.

But when it’s all said and done, businesses exist because of their customers. We all see examples of businesses that serve their customers excellently which create record profits. But what about when the customers exist in a community, the community exists in a society, and the society exists within the context of the rest of humanity?

In this presentation, we’ll explore:
A powerful definition of what value really is
How to go beyond the business and to the individual, family, society, and economy
How to tie societal value back to income in tangible ways
