Tue, 7/20: The Future and Your Business Seminar (CSBA 109)
Issues & Trends for the Sustainability-Minded Enterprise

Sustainability-minded enterprises are inherent leaders and need to keep a sharp eye focused on the future in order to maintain their market advantage, avoid pitfalls, and to grow and thrive. For the busy businessperson, however, it can be difficult to step away from current priorities and consider what forces are shaping their future and how to respond. This seminar empowers participants by providing a deeper understanding of "where all of this is going." An opportunity for participants to reflect on and discuss how these issues could challenge their company's development, or present new opportunities, will also be incorporated.

The seminar will be lead by Peter Nicholson, one of the most broadly knowledgeable professionals in Chicago on sustainable business issues. He is the Executive Director of the Foresight Design Initiative, founder of the organization's Chicago Sustainable Business Alliance and an engaging teacher and facilitator. Additional special guests will be announced.

Women's Business Development Center, 8 S Michigan Ave, #400
When: July 20, 2010, 3-5:30pm
Cost: $45 for members.
