Promoting Business with Social Responsibility
"In the 40 years that I have been in business, expectations of business and its role in society have changed. When I started my career, the key marker of success began and ended with financial results. Today, society is facing more serious challenges — from resource scarcity to concerns around health and well-being. As a result, more and more companies are committed to creating a profit while also defining their broader contribution to society."
"In life and business, be clear about what you're going to do... then do it... and every once in a while, give your audience a positive surprise.”
— John Brock
