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!
