In one week, on October 31 at the Kimmel Center in Philadelphia, a record number of about 172 CEOs in the region will gather for the invitation-only CEO Conference on Why Business Growth Leaders Value CSR. The Institute is proud to convene this impressive group for a morning dedicated to Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).
The Keynote presentation features Dawn Zier, the dynamic CEO of Nutrisystem. Best known for engineering the turnaround of the iconic brand, Dawn doubled revenues for the company and increased operating profit and market cap by 5X during her tenure, resulting in a 5-year CAGR of 15%. She has an engrossing story to share about the importance of CSR to her company growth professionally and to her personally.
The event will feature the Institute’s hallmark, the much-anticipated peer idea exchange tables, where CEOs share their challenges, triumphs, insights and business benefits of their organization’s CSR. CEO attendees find these discussions invaluable.
This invitation-only event at the Kimmel Center is the fourth semi-annual Satell Institute CSR Impact Conference for Member CEOs and their guests and raises tens of millions of dollars of four-year support for nonprofits to make a better community.
A few comments by CEOs on past conferences who are attending again are below:
Jim Dever, Market President, Bank of America
“Inspirational, motivational, and seeks to cultivate the leaders of tomorrow. A superb message that was delivered in a warm and heartfelt manner—trust the process!”
Kevin Duffy, President, Tozour Energy Systems
“Sharing good work inspires more action provoked a great discussion! The leaders at our table had excellent ideas on ways to honor and celebrate teammates in the company who give back to their community.”
Marc Brownstein, CEO, Brownstein Group
“The discussions inspired the leaders at my table to think analytically about giving back. They never thought to measure what they gave before the CEO Conference.”
Paul Kappel, Jr, CEO, Junior Achievement of Southeastern Pennsylvania
“As a non-profit executive, attending the Satell Institute Private CEO Conference has been extremely enlightening. Hearing firsthand from local CEOs about the importance of Corporate Social Responsibility and how their companies align their culture to support initiatives is very beneficial.”
COMMUNITY IS EVERY LEADER’S BUSINESS!
