We live in a world that is hungering for a new form of leadership to be brought into being: one that embraces creativity, co-operation, and an awareness of the need for mutual respect and inclusivity. Businesses around the globe are recognising this and starting to incorporate environmental sustainability and mindfulness practices into their everyday routines. This marks a welcome change from outdated corporate business models that have tended to prioritise the pursuit of profit above all else, to the detriment of worker satisfaction, social consciousness, or the health of our environment.
If you are a budding entrepreneur – or a leader within an existing business – who wants some advice on how to create a more conscious culture within your workplace, look no further than the Conscious Business World Summit. This five-day summit is a free online event, running from Monday, January 8th to Friday, January 12th. All you have to do is sign up for the summit online, where you will be granted access to a wide range of inspirational talks on subjects such as how to bring presence and emotional connection into your work, leading through connection, and blending mindfulness, science and humour.
Each day has its own subject “track” which focuses on one specific area of conscious business. For example, Monday’s lessons are based on Conscious Leadership, Tuesday’s talks will focus on Purpose and Mission, and Wednesday’s talks will explore the area of Workplace and Culture. Each of these “tracks” include a mixture of best practice presentations, one-to-one interviews with experts, and keynote speeches, all of which aim to give listeners a full set of core principles and practical integration tools that they can apply within their own businesses.
The host speakers of this amazing event are Aaron Kahlo, Emily Lane and Nathan Havey. Guest speakers will include Raj Sisodia, author of ‘Conscious Capitalism’, Maureen Simon, founder and creative director of the Essential Feminine, Bob Willard, founder of Sustainability Advantage, Diana Chapman, co-founder of The Conscious Leadership Group, and many others.
With a host of international experts on board, ready to offer their experiences and insights free of charge, the Conscious Business World Summit is sure to be a highly valuable experience for budding entrepreneurs. Just go to consciousbusinessworldsummit.com to register.
Finding the whole picture in more than one place
Picture this… a confident 19-year-old approaches a landlady who had a shop premises for rent. He had no money, no stock, no fancy business plan, just an overwhelming belief that if he could open a business in the space it would all work out. The landlady said “Yes” and the first 24-hour supermarket in Dublin was born.
Since then, David Ellis has opened and managed many businesses, shops, restaurants and hotels. The journey has been an interesting one with many successes, some failures, and a few twists along the way. His work as a personal trainer brought him into the realm of the physical, and taught him the importance of nurturing our bodies as a support for all the other work we do. When his father died, the path took another twist as David commenced his spiritual journey and discovered hypnosis, crystals, colour therapy, etc.
Now life is about balance. “I’ve realised that everything in the entrepreneurial world is not the whole picture, and having spent 14 years in the spiritual world, that’s not the whole picture either.” Today, for David, life and living is about employing all the tools he has gathered, and using those tools with integrity and without attachment. His work in Atlantis Crystals is about coaching people to reach their full potential for themselves, their relationships, their businesses and careers.
“In order to succeed, we need to have joy and happiness in our lives, but sometimes we need someone objective to help us see what we cannot see in ourselves.”
