In today’s business landscape, responsibility and sustainability are no longer optional or “nice to have.” Modern stakeholders don’t just expect an environmental, social and governance (ESG) focus, they demand it. Being a good corporate citizen today is “table stakes.” Simultaneously, many of the corporate social responsibility departments companies launched in the last 30 years aren’t thinking enough about innovation, growth, business-focused results and resilience. Table Stakes discusses the issues of sustainability with forward-thinking leaders to forecast the future of responsible business. Being ethical, human and sustainable is no longer optional – it’s table stakes.

Life and business seem only to get more complex, confusing and fast-paced. How can we regain our calm and clarity? How do we retain control and live purposeful lives when for so long doing business has been all about madly prioritising profit? In his best-selling book What’s Your Moonshot?

With his unique blend of psychology, business strategy and future studies, he reveals the new way. He asks us to look inwards first, to find authenticity and meaning. Then, in looking out, he explains how purpose-led business isn’t just the ethical choice; it is ultimately the rational choice for long-term sustainability in a world looking for conscious and ethical solutions. It’s time to Magnetiize! “With compelling insight, Magnetiize shows us how to best navigate this rapidly changing future with less fear and more excitement.” – René Carayol, MBE “John Sanei’s genius is in helping us decode and overcome the obstacles we face in achieving personal and professional success.

Quaker Focus is produced by the Christchurch Quakers and is on air at 9 p.m. on the fourth Wednesday each month. We are part of the global Quaker family – a radical spiritual group with roots in the 17th century. Quakers try to see the good in everybody, and value the insights from the world’s various spiritual and ethical traditions. Over the centuries, Quakers have been involved in a wide range of social changes, consistent with their values – such as anti-slavery, prison reform, peace and disarmament. Quaker Focus provides a glimpse into Quaker life and values in 21st century New Zealand. After an initial introductory programme, we will look at the impact of our key values on our lives, and their relevance in today’s world. These values (which we call testimonies) include Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality and Sustainability. The programmes are introduced and produced by Michael Winter, who has been associated with Quakers for over 40 years in the U.K. and New Zealand. Michael will be chairing discussions with 2 or 3 Quakers in each episode. We hope you can join us.
