WANTED a jobs & growth agenda

In his address tonight to a Joint Session of Congress, President Obama will lay out his plans for kick-starting employment and growth. America needs a plan for good-paying jobs combined with sustained and sustainable growth. Here’s our jobs and growth agenda at the COMMIT!Forum Sept 26-27 in NYC:
 
Sell More, Save More. Some of the world’s best companies – BASF, Bloomberg LP, Green Mountain Coffee, HP, Intel, State Street Bank, UPS, & more – have used corporate responsibility and sustainability to grow their top and bottom lines. Find out how you can too!
 
Workforce Competitiveness. Every year, tens of thousands of workers show up unprepared for work, costing Corporate America billions of dollars. Corporate Voices for Working Families is working with America’s most productive firms to save them money and deploy a more competitive workforce for the 21st Century.
 
Shareholder Returns. The capital and debt markets provide the liquidity that will power a new wave of growth. Some of the most prominent and effective investors, exchanges, analysts, and insurers – Fireman’s Fund Allianz, JP Morgan, KKR, Standard & Poors, TIAA-CREF, & more – have used sustainable investment strategies to drive better returns and manage risk.
 
Register today!  Time is running out to get onboard with one of the most powerful jobs and growth agendas.

I soon discovered that it doesn’t really matter whether your introduction to CollaborateUp is through an issue solving workshop, or at an event as Richard brings all the chaos together with his savvy charm and good humour - the most important thing is that you get to engage and work with these great folks! My biggest take out over the past five years of being a part of their world – collaboration is a process and you’re not going to get very far unless you know what problem you’re all trying to solve together. The CollaborateUp framework helps by asking simple questions to help reveal the big answers. - Cate O’Kane, Founder, &co partnership consultancy
