5. Wednesday, 10 Dec, 2014 12:15pm – 01:45pm – UChicago Booth Alumni / CFA Singapore : From Shareholder Value to Shared Value by Calvin Chu, Managing Partner Eden Strategy

More companies are finding their competitiveness mutually dependent on the health of their stakeholders, and are finding a need to better engage with their customers, employees, investors, partners, and communities. Innovative firms that can provide superior long-term access to broader segments of customers are able to realize new profit streams from meeting their social needs, while those forming deep linkages with their suppliers and distributors are able to secure more productive value chains. Visionary corporate leaders are leveraging on their organizational competencies to collaborate with governments, non-profit organisations, and social entrepreneurs, redefining the impact of capitalism today. Join social innovator Eden Strategy Institute in discussing its pioneering approach towards Shared Value, using real case studies to examine how Shared Value breaks the perceived trade-offs between corporate social responsibility and shareholder value.
