Presented by

Paul Spiers, Founder, The New P&L - Principles & Leadership in Business Podcast series

About this talk

In this month’s episode of The New P&L Business Book Review Club, sponsored by The Carroll Consultancy we speak to Sarah Kay, author of Brand New World: Define the Role of Your Brand to Create a Bold Future, global brand advisor and former Head of Global Brand Innovation for Nike. Sarah believes that brands exist to benefit humanity, not the other way around so we need to make brands work harder for us. She specialize in futures thinking, and often partners with CEOs and CMOs to help them define the role of their brand in creating a bold future for humanity and the planet. We discussed: · Whether purpose can be retrofitted back into an organisation · How you encourage some leaders to effectively work against what seems to be their own best interests in the short to medium term when they are rewarded on the basis of short to medium term performance · If consumers have abdicated their personal responsibility for social and environmental issues to brands · The barriers enterprise leaders highlighted when it came to implementing creative thinking in businesses · The leadership that is needed at the top of industry to ensure actions are taken for the collective good · Where the line is between symbolism, pragmatism and true authenticity when brands claim to act in the public interest To order a copy of Sarah's book, please go to: The New P&L Monthly Business Book is sponsored by Carroll Consultancy Group: dramatically developing people, performance and profits.

We believe business needs a ‘New P&L’: one that is focused as much on ‘Principles and Leadership’ as it is on ‘Profit and Loss’, because we know that if your Principles are right and aligned with your purpose, and your Leadership has clarity of vision and is strong, focused and empathetic, then your business will be in profit and not in loss in so many ways. Each week on The New P&L podcast, we interview a diverse range of entrepreneurs, business leaders and social impact investors on their views and opinions on the importance of Principles and Leadership in business, discussing how we can all work towards building more ethical, productive, collaborative and ultimately, successful and principled businesses - ones that encourage great, inspirational leaders and motivated teams.
