Tuesday, May 2nd  |  7:30am – 1:30pm  |  Conscious Business Summit @ The Rochester Riverside Convention Center

Our first half-day conference! You may have heard the phrase “What gets measured gets improved.” While profit is easy to measure, it’s not the only thing that matters. How can we measure conscious business principles to get them higher on leaders’ priority lists?

> Join us for breakfast and a morning keynote from Doug Rauch, former President of “Firm of Endearment” Trader Joe’s.
> We’ll hear from business leaders on how they use measurements like Triple Bottom Line, Great Places to Work, Cultural Values Assessments, B Corps and ETHIE Awards to “Measure What Matters.”
> We’ll get inspired by local social entrepreneurs
> Then, join us for lunch with Rochester Rotary to hear from Doug on his latest project, Daily Table. In the US, 40% of our food gets thrown out. Daily Table is trying to make sure that food instead goes to those that need it most. Read more about Daily Table here.
