April 28, 2022 /3BL Media/ - Purpose is the new frontier for performance and competition in today's business landscape and failing to adapt means companies will struggle to remain competitive in their markets. 

Phil Preston, CEO of The Business Purpose Project and Lynne Filderman, Founder of Curation On Purpose LLC are pleased to announce the second installment of their virtual production, Corporate Conversations on Purpose, a series of 30-minute virtual conversations with business leaders who offer their expertise and candid insights in navigating purpose-based transformations.

“Purpose impacts corporate strategy, operations and people, and therefore it’s important to hear from all parts of the value chain” said Phil Preston, CEO of The Business Purpose Project and co-founder of Corporate Conversations on Purpose, who adds, “We all have an interest in seeing purpose-based transformations succeed.”

These conversations are meeting this critical moment in time as no one has all the answers nor is there a single prescribed way of dealing with the rapidly changing business environment and shift to the purpose economy.
