Boeklancering 'Higher Ground. How business can do the right thing in a turbulent world.'

When did it become so difficult to establish what it means to be a good business today? Purpose statements are placated across corporate websites, yet headlines are full of news of ethics scandals, discoveries of child labor in supply chains, and employee quiet quitting. In a conversation with the audience, Alison Taylor will take us through her new book ‘Higher Ground’ and share hard-earned insight on how business can navigate this messy paradigm shift, build trust, and achieve long-term strategic advantage in a turbulent world
