Creating Shared Value as a Corporate Strategy – Featuring Valerie Bockstette, FSG Social Impact Advisors

In January 2011 the world leading business strategist Michael E. Porter together with managing director of FSG Mark Kramer published the article “Creating Shared Value” and opened a discussion about the next major transformation of business thinking.

On April 27, 2012 we offer you a unique opportunity to discuss the new strategic approach with Valerie Bockstette, a member of the leadership group for FSG in Europe.

The concept of shared value can be defined as policies and operating practices that enhance the competitiveness of a company while simultaneously advancing the economic and social conditions in the communities in which it operates. Shared value is not philanthropy and even goes beyond sustainability – it brings a strategic opportunity for businesses to reconnect company success with social progress. It is not on the margin of what companies do but at the center.

The discussion supported by Bayer, Nestle and T-Mobile in cooperation with American Chambers of Commerce, Business Leaders Forum and CSR Consult will be held at Bayer on April 27 from 9 to 12 am.

Who should participate: General Managers, CEOs and anyone interested in business strategies.
