The House of Beautiful Business

From business-as-usual to business that's beautiful
Progress is born in bold abstractions but experienced in the day-to-day. Concrete Love is the response to the forces, innovations, and burning questions that will define 2022 and everything thereafter.
Let’s dream big—and build: new workplaces, new selves, new worlds. Out: commitment issues. In: a rootedness that frees you to be whoever you want.
Let’s begin again. With concrete love.

Join us on 10 November for a virtual roundtable during the 13th Global Peter Drucker Forum.

  • What are you most worried about today?
  • What do you see as the biggest opportunities on the horizon?
  • How would you characterize the ‘state of affairs’ in your operating domain?

What do you spend your time thinking about that was not part of your thinking pre-covid?
