Laura Hall is a global business leader in the fashion and consumer goods industry. She left her last corporate role as president of accessories for Polo Ralph Lauren to join forces with two other female C-Suite executives to create WHYZ Partners. WHYZ Partners is a different kind of business advisory collective that offers retailers and brands a 21st century road map for how to successfully navigate purpose and profit in a 'new abnormal' consumer goods ecosystem. Laura has been called a 'collaborative co-conspirator' by her peers and clients - a descriptor she proudly accepts! And most recently, Laura is the author of a new children's book The ABCs of Conscious Capitalism for KIDs - because Laura believes that 'It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men' ...as Frederick Douglass said over a century ago.
Laura is also part of a business and banking task force working with public and private sector organizations to introduce a new way to measure economic wealth. The Social Wealth Index or SWI is an additional measurement tool to GDP which measures the input and output of caring for people and planet. Laura believes that we measure what matters and that what matters gets measured and that the real wealth of a nation or society or business lies in how it treats its people, and how its people treat the environment.
The ABCs of Conscious Capitalism for KIDs is for kids who have big ideas and even bigger dreams, and want to make some money along the way. In this stunningly creative activity book, Laura Hall offers readers twenty-six bite-sized chapters--one for every letter of the alphabet--that will help you to:
--Identify and understand what Conscious Capitalism is and why you want to be a part of the movement
--Create a business idea that means something not only to you but to those around you
--Make that cash--helping you to be the change-maker you have always wanted to be
By the end of The ABCs of Conscious Capitalism for KIDs, you'll understand the power of Conscious Capitalism and why this movement is so important, how to discover your own passion and purpose, and how to use that passion as a force for good--something that can better the world, the people in it, and your wallet. You might even find a few surprises on these pages!
