Hi All, I am sure many of you will be aware of the Meaning conference that happens in Brighton in November.

It's an eclectic mix of speakers - focussed on the future, and on how business can make a positive contribution. This year it is curated by journalist Paul Mason, who has built a programme of talks by thinkers and do-ers from business, academia, activism and the arts.

More than that, it's a great place to connect with other souls interested in creating solutions to society's most complex challenges.

If you do want to go, there are bulk ticket discounts available, if you can club together. If you're feeling charitable you can give an extra ticket away. Alternatively, if you use the code 'Ethos' when buying a ticket you'll get a 15% discount.

Normally its £185 and is on the 17th November.

PS I am one of the founders, from when it started in 2012. The aim has never been to make money - more to help bring about a better world, through connecting and informing.

I expect some of you already know about this. But just in case, early bird tickets finish tomorrow

Nice piece about (I think) the dangers of simplification. About our very human (and commercial?) tendency to put our faith in simple, seemingly accessible schema and ignore the real work?

Charlie Mayfield of John Lewis making the case for Employee Ownership.

EO is a form of business I am very interested in. In my view it is all about distributing leadership - into the hands of the people on the front line. Creating responsibility and accountability throughout the business.

The text of his talk is here.

Hi, like Richard Martin I hope I can tiptoe quietly in with a blog post to introduce myself.

Beyond that, and by way of background, I know +Austen Hunter from Brighton, have met Rob, and I know one or two more of you from my time at NixonMcInnes.

A few years ago I started a consultancy called Conscious Business People - which was really about two things: leading more mindfully, and getting more purposeful results.

I’d define Conscious Business generally as being about those things, and doing business differently.

In fact, alternative ways of doing business has been a lifelong interest for me, as have alternative ways of doing just about anything. So I am really interested in Ethos and how it is organising itself differently to deal with complex business problems.

I am planning to be at the First Wednesday event - so hope to meet some more of you there?

Best
