Arizona Good Business Summit Offers Solutions to Build Profit and Community
Building a legacy as a purpose-driven business is the goal of The Arizona Good Business Summit on Jan. 30 at the Phoenix Convention Center.
“The Arizona Good Business Summit was created as a way for businesses to stand out from their competitors and grow their businesses while also having a positive impact on the community,” said Thomas Barr, Executive Director of Local First Arizona. “We’ve confirmed some of Arizona’s premier business leaders and experts to share their experiences. Together, we’ll show business owners that it is possible to increase profits while building a legacy as a purpose-driven business here in Arizona.”
The full-day agenda includes workshops and panelists to speak ranging from developing and marketing for-profit and nonprofit partnerships effectively to rethinking a profit-only approach to business. Attendees will hear from speakers like Stephanie Vasquez, Fair Trade Cafe, turning the idea of capitalism into a community-focused model for success. Each session throughout the day aims to bolster businesses to redefine and expand their bottom lines to use enterprise as a force for good.
“The Arizona Good Business Summit is a manifestation of one of the state’s best kept secrets: we have a dynamic community of purpose-based businesses who see capitalism as a force for good,” said Adam Goodman, President and CEO of Goodman Interior Structures and presenter at this year’s Good Business Summit. “Local First Arizona is leading this movement and I recommend business leaders attend for networking, inspiration and opportunity.”
Among the lineup of speakers is keynote Kim Jordan, co-founder of New Belgium Brewing. In 25 years as an entrepreneur, Jordan has developed her company to be the intersection of business and community being recognized as one of the most innovative companies in America. Her lifelong commitment to developing healthy communities has informed New Belgium’s culture through progressive policies like employee ownership, open-book management, and philanthropic giving.
Ahead of the Arizona Good Business Summit is an exclusive dinner hosted with keynote speaker, Kim Jordan of New Belgium Brewing on Jan. 29 at the Pemberton House, (1121 N 2nd St, Phoenix, AZ 85004). The dinner will pair select New Belgium beer with a multi-course meal prepared by Chef Kevin Lebron and the culinary team of Conceptually Social.
