Overview

Philanthropic gifts and corporate social responsibility programmes are admirable, but they fall short of driving the change at scale that we desperately need today.

What if you could play a role in turning this around? You can, and you can start right now. It’s about applying a simple set of principles to connect profitable business with social purpose.

This is an easy to read book with a practical roadmap for (re)building trust and creating high-performing, sustainable businesses.

About the Author

Phil Preston left his corporate role to explore the links between social needs and business agendas. He found that the good intentions of businesses aren't enough to make a real difference, so when he stumbled across Michael Porter and Mark Kramer's 'shared value' concept he went all in. Phil is a strategist, facilitator and speaker who lives south of Sydney with his family and manic dog, Gizmo.
