Fusion: Virtual & Local Summit

In collaboration with:

How it Works


The 2019 Regenerative Business Summit is a fusion of local events in multiple cities coupled with virtual engagement around the world. This is not a standard “summit” – there will be no presentations, no panels, and no keynotes. Live “fishbowls” with CEOs and Founders of leading businesses (e.g. Sheryl O’Loughlin, Jeffrey Hollender) will be combined with interactive workshop sessions, where local participants work together on their real business pursuits.


Why it’s Different


The theme of this year’s summit is “Essence Expression Through Business.” You will engage with what the Essence of YOUR business is, and how to use it for:

◊ Strategic Positioning to make you non-displaceable in your markets
◊ Industry Leadership to realize social and planetary imperatives
◊ Work Design and systems to develop core human capacities

Champions are the hosts of the local events in each city, inviting appropriate businesses from their network. 

Do You Know Your Business’s Essence?

Essence is core to non-displaceability. If you aren’t working from essence, you are on edge of being displaced. Essence is the distinctive and singular nature of the company. It acts as a unifying concept and decision-making beacon for everything the company does. Essence cannot be copied, and offers an unyielding source of profitable innovation.

Without your businesses essence in hand, you drift from tactic to tactic or respond reactively to changes in the market. With essence in hand you own the market, and have a clear strategic direction for growth and impact.

Why Regenerative Business?

 Regeneration is a paradigm drawn from living systems.

7 First Principles of Regeneration radically differentiate the paradigm from sustainability, circularity, and extractive mechanistic mindsets.

Businesses have an incredible opportunity to produce impact.

Businesses play a unique role in society: They are simultaneously employers, investors, and developers and can guide social systems and governance towards regeneration.
