Yes, I am up to my eyeballs with the production of the upcoming C3 Summit and working with my colleagues on the board of the Conscious Capitalism Alliance to build out our program for next year. But I think I am being somewhat objective when I observe that Conscious Capitalism is awakening.
Today the Wall Street Journal published an excellent interview with John Mackey, in which he outlines the principles of Conscious Capitalism. Earlier this week colleagues and I met with Brad Baker, CEO of Codding Enterprises in Santa Rosa, CA and developers of SOMO, a state-of-the-art sustainable community, and some of his collaborators. The topic? Cultivating a Conscious Capitalism ecosystem in Sonoma County, with SOMO as its hub.
I can’t really keep track of all of the conversations I had and heard this week on CC – with journalists, CEOs, students, and countless others. And the energy and excitement around the C3 Summit is already touching people who will not be attending.
Yes, I am ever the optimist, but this movement is clearly generating powerful momentum. Michael Moore can cry wolf all he wants. Let’s criticize by creating the next iteration of Capitalism.
