Conscious Capitalism redefines true business success by focusing on positive effects on our society and environment, and the creation of a more sustainable economy. This framework leads business to greater longevity in the market by taking all stakeholders into account, which include their customers, employees and the community. The A2Y Chamber is pleased to provide a major program for its members to help them participate in this movement. Our speaker will be Nathan Havey, founder and CEO of Thrive Consulting Group, a company that exists to make conscious business the new business as usual.”
