CECP Releases Board of Boards CEO Conference Executive Summary
(3BL Media / theCSRfeed) March 16, 2011 - “If you’re not passionate about this, then don’t bother. And being passionate isn’t about memos and speeches; it’s about asking questions and being a part of what you’re trying to accomplish. That’s what sets it into your company’s character and inspires people.”
– Bill Green, Chairman, Accenture
