The Center for Values-Driven Leadership (CVDL) has announced Stuart Hart as the keynote speaker at the CVDL’s next Senior Executive Roundtable on October 14th.
Stuart Hart is one of the world’s foremost speakers on corporate sustainability. Hart focuses on creating sustainable value — growing profits, increasing competitive advantage, and generating growth — through the pursuit of sustainability.
“We’re delighted to announce Stu Hart as our next keynote speaker,” says Amber Johnson, CVDL corporate relations advisor and Roundtable organizer. “Stu thinks about sustainability through the lens of creating value. He knows business leaders need a return on their investment, and his work shows the value of that investment.”
Hart sees sustainability as opening new market spaces. “That’s the bigger challenge,” he says. “Companies that are going to drive us toward a more sustainable world will realize the really big opportunities of the future.”
Hart is the Samuel C. Johnson Chair in Sustainable Global Enterprise and Professor of Management at Cornell University’s Johnson School of Management. He is also Founder and President of Enterprise for a Sustainable World. His best-selling 2005 book, Capitalism at the Crossroads, was named as one of the top 50 books on sustainability of all-time.
The Center for Values-Driven Leadership’s Senior Executive Roundtables are part of an ongoing series designed to inform and inspire senior executives who are committed to leading at the intersection of ethics, sustainability and business results. Previous speakers include leadership futurist Bob Johansen and bestselling business author Jim Kouzes. More on these past events can be found here.
