Episode 80: How Your Business Can Have A More Positive Impact On The World with Steve Pipe
How Your Business Can Have A More Positive Impact On The World
Our guest on the podcast this week is Steve Pipe, a former UK Entrepreneur of The Year who is now giving away all of his time and intellectual property to help make the world a better place. Specifically, his goal is to unlock 100 million days of help for people in need by 2030. And currently, he is at 28 million days which is just incredible. It’s true that Steve is an accountant by trade, but he’s not your stereotypical accountant as you will soon hear as he says “Chartered accountant by name, not by nature”.
Today we’re going to be talking about one of Steve’s greatest passions and that is making a real difference in our world, and encouraging more of us to do the same. He shares his own hard-earned wisdom around business, capitalism, and the quest for never-ending profits, and explains how we can reimagine business, to become a force for good. During our conversation, Steve posed some fascinating questions that really give you a clear idea of ultimately what matters most to you and how you can integrate that knowledge and use it to drive actions that do create a more positive impact in our world.
Listen in as we talk through how business can do well and do good at the same time. Steve passionately make a business case for ALL business to do good, not just because it's the right thing to do but also because of how that impacts the business’s bottom line profitability in exponential ways. He also describes how we can each make a difference in our own life in easy, small steps.
If you are in business or working within business and you truly care about the future of our planet then I encourage you to listen to this passionate conversation for insights. I suspect you’ll enjoy Steve's perspective on what needs to happen for us to begin to rethink how we do business and its impact on the world and I guess you might be pleasantly surprised that it’s not as hard as you might think.
