Event description


Our guest on the December 21 Conference Call is Curt Brown of Ambassador Enterprises in Fort Wayne, IN. The interview topic is "The Triple Bottom Line."

Ambassador Enterprises is a part of the economic revival noted in the 2009 report from the Federal Reserve Community Affairs department that named Fort Wayne one of 10 Resurgent small cities in America. The 50 year study from 1960-2009 noted that collaborative leadership is the key to economic transformation. This call will focus on the triple bottom line that transformed Ambassador Steel founded in 1974 into a powerful private equity company that owns 15 companies including Correct Craft, American Landmaster, and Ambassador Supply. Their commitment to doing good extends to communities throughout Northeast Indiana and beyond through their nonprofit charitable gifts exceeding $500,000 annually and through their extensive organizational development programs.

From Sustainable to Flourishing Businesses and Communities

Today businesses are going beyond "sustainability" which reduces the ecological footprint, to "doing good" in the communities where they are based and in places where they offer their products or services. This is a movement toward flourishing businesses and communities.

This series of conference calls on the third Thursday of each month at 10 a.m. Central Time lifts up examples of business as an agent of community benefit. Dr. Glenn Barth, our host, will interview the guest in the first half of each conference call and then open the lines for callers to ask questions in the second half of these highly interactive one hour calls.
