Some of the world’s most successful and forward-thinking business leaders, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders will convene for Conscious Capitalism 2013 in San Francisco on Friday & Saturday, April 5 & 6, 2013 to share stories and best practices for putting Conscious Capitalism to work.

The two-day event is designed for business owners, executives, non-profits and students who want to understand the principles of Conscious Capitalism and how to apply them to business, at all levels, to activate and engage employees, customers, vendors and other stakeholders, leading to long term success. Conscious Capitalism 2013 will feature dozens of speakers and workshop leaders from some of the world’s most dynamic and innovative companies that practice Conscious Capitalism.

“Conscious Capitalism focuses on higher purpose and creates value for all stakeholders, including investors, customers, employees, vendors and communities,” observed Kip Tindell, Chairman and CEO of The Container Store. “Everyone wins. It’s simply a better way of doing business.” Tindell is presenting on stakeholder relations on both days of the event.

“The prospering companies of tomorrow will lead with mindfulness and compassion,” commented Patagonia CEO, Casey Sheahan. Sheahan will be speaking on Conscious Leadership at the conference, as well as conducting a workshop with his wife, Tara Sheahan, of Conscious Global Leadership.

According to Fedele Bauccio, CEO of Bon Appétit Management Company, “With the Conscious Capitalism model, we have deeply engaged and inspired employees, as well as strong relationships with all of our stakeholders, including farmers, farmworkers, and the communities in which we work. The result is that we have built an incredibly healthy restaurant company.” Bauccio will share his insights and experience on Friday, April 5th in a segment on Purpose.

Day One will feature talks by CEOs, founders and executives from companies such as Whole Foods Market, The Motley Fool and method that apply the four principles of Conscious Capitalism in their businesses.
