Con­scious Cap­i­tal­ism and the emer­gence of the Bi­o­log­i­cal Busi­ness Model

Dr. Elis­a­bet Sah­touris is a world leader in un­der­stand­ing and ex­plain­ing how the sci­en­tific prin­ci­ples of bi­ol­ogy and the evo­lu­tion of liv­ing sys­tems can in­form the op­er­a­tion of suc­cess­ful busi­nesses.

When you break it down, ev­ery­thing in life fol­lows bi­o­log­i­cal sys­tems and the evo­lu­tion of these liv­ing sys­tems. Even busi­nesses: from what works to what doesn’t, re­la­tion­ships be­tween cus­tomers and clients, and pro­cesses of work, there is ‘bi­ol­ogy’ to busi­ness.

Dr. Elis­a­bet Sah­touris ar­rives in Auck­land in March for a unique con­fer­ence that will out­line how sci­en­tific con­cepts, es­pe­cially the fun­da­men­tal as­sump­tions of glob­alised western sci­ence, deeply in­flu­ence eco­nom­ics, and there­fore the hu­man fu­ture. It will ques­tion what we think we know – help­ing us un­der­stand the keys to busi­ness suc­cess.

While ini­tial in­ter­pre­ta­tions of evo­lu­tion bi­ol­ogy fo­cussed on Dar­winian con­flict, com­pe­ti­tion and sur­vival of the fittest, that model turns out to rep­re­sent only the youth­ful phase in the evo­lu­tion of species; a phase that reaches its lim­its and leads to ex­tinc­tion or the trans­for­ma­tion of liv­ing sys­tems into ma­ture economies, in which, col­lab­o­ra­tion and co­op­er­a­tion are the key to en­ergy-ef­fi­cient and sus­tain­able re­la­tion­ships nec­es­sary for com­plex, healthy, in­ter­con­nected net­works.

As hu­mans, we de­vel­oped ma­ture co­op­er­a­tive economies at the tribal level, but then re­verted to an im­ma­ture eco­nomic mode to cre­ate large scale em­pires, the most re­cent ver­sion of which is our cur­rent global bank­ing and busi­ness sys­tem.

Dr. Sah­touris will show why reach­ing lim­its in en­ergy, re­source ex­ploita­tion, pop­u­la­tion, dwin­dling sur­pluses and ex­po­nen­tially ris­ing debt, which have brought on crises from global heat­ing to fi­nan­cial col­lapse, force us to re­con­sider busi­ness as usual, recog­nise it as ut­terly un­sus­tain­able and re­build our busi­nesses on com­mu­nity and global re­la­tion­ships.

In short, if you are in­ter­ested in a new, unique way of solv­ing busi­ness prob­lems and man­ag­ing the day-to-day op­er­a­tions of the ever-chang­ing world of busi­ness – then this con­fer­ence is for you.

Hurry – there are only 200 seats to this one-off con­fer­ence!
