What you will learn:

What do you value and why? We start first with that as a baseline. Then we recognize and address the rise in social consciousness and with that the importance for individuals to understand directly who they are engaging with. What do these firms stand for? What is their overall Purpose and Mission? How are they engaging with Stakeholders? What impact are they having throughout their supply chain and thus with the end consumer? In the time of C19 and awareness of heightened inequalities across the demographics of our society, why and how are companies applying their understanding into larger, impactful programs doing good. We delve into recognizing and understanding the market trends leading up to these changes, what government and private sector initiatives are supporting and if not suggesting these changes (i.e., UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and also what are business leaders, entrepreneurs, technologists and faith-based organizations doing to effect this change across communities, nations and countries.

About the instructor:

Darby Hobbs is a change agent, creator, producer, and storyteller focused on Social Innovation and determining growth opportunities in the areas of greatest social and environmental impact.

Through Darby's firm, SOCIAL3, she works with entrepreneurs to mid-stage and large public companies, engaging with them to develop business ideas for the greater global good and direct benefit to local and global communities alike. Coming with over 20 years from the investment industry as a global strategist, product developer and marketing/brand specialist, Darby understands the human psyche and what triggers brand engagement.

Darby is certified in Corporate Social Responsibility and have worked in the area of Socially Responsible Investing (SRI), Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) and Impact Investing over the past 12 years. Beyond working with business leaders, she also engages with financial intermediaries to educate and prepare them for integrating more purpose and value into their practice. At the same time, Darby works with their clients to align their values and passions with life decisions and most specifically their investment strategies. The goal is bringing to life the triple bottom line (people, planet, profit) and refining a firm's overall purpose (Conscious Capitalism, Stakeholder Capitalism, Responsible Leadership, Shared Value, etc.).

Through their LivingWellTM approach, individuals learn about themselves, their own purpose, that of their firm they are working with and how to be that bridge in society towards redefining value and being part of what she defines as, the Circular Nature of Conscious Capital Formation. There is a new InvestingDNATM in our midst driven by what Darby terms, the Heart AccountTM, making most of us very aware of our Financial ChakraTM - applying money towards a greater global good. Through Magic, Imagination, and Creativity Darby brings participants through a sequence of learning that evokes curiosity and innovation, that has them understand their 'super power' and how they can effect change and work collectively towards a greater global mission.

In her work, Darby explores with individuals the importance of the following and how it gets factored into their everyday lives. Love, Compassion, Kindness, Empathy, Faith, Fear, Hope, Freedom, Dream, Joy, Inspire (In Spirit), Curiosity, Leadership, Loyalty, Truth, Respect, Integrity, Honesty, Trust, Wisdom, and Perspective.

Currently authoring a book with 48 leading global specialists, The NEW Way: Connecting the Heart, to the Mind, to the Wallet (Getting at the Heart of the Matter).
