Thank you +Hanna McPhee for an incredibly designed presentation and Sidney Kushner, founder +CCChampions, and +Faisal Khurshid of +MED International for sharing your powerful stories at this year's A Better World by Design conference #BWxD14  
What does a 2500 yr old philosophy have to do with 21st C business, innovation, entrepreneurship and design? A lot! This is the presentation I gave at A Better World by Design on Sept. 20, 2014. Intentionally building the Classic Virtues into the design of a business can have a tremendous impact on outputs and outcomes.

Introduction
If you're struggling to create a path for growth, even outside your traditional areas, if your strategic planning process is static, if innovation is a program instead of a mindset, if the best talent isn't interested in joining your organization (or your top talent is leaving), if you're having issues with accountability and execution, then I can help.  Together, we will explore, discover and prioritize growth opportunities around the core and edges of your business. We take those and create an actionable, adaptable, measurable and living strategic plan based on innovation, talent and execution.
