Corporate Leaders to Gather in Calgary in October 2014 to Discuss the Role of Business in Addressing Social Issues and Sustainable Development

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - June 25, 2014) - More than 300 business leaders and students are expected to gather at Ambrose University College in Calgary for the Soul of the Next Economy Forum on October 3-4, 2014 to network, share best practices, and discuss future directions for sustainable domestic and international development, corporate social responsibility, and social enterprise.

Keynote speakers include Peggie Pelosi, founder and CEO, ORENDA Connections and author of Corporate Karma and Wayne Dunn, professor at McGill University and founder, CSR Training Institute.

"The lines between the business, public, and charitable sectors continue to blur," says Randy Poon, forum co-chair and chair of the Ambrose business program. "Business is no longer simply about profit margins. There is an expectation for business to play a meaningful and active role in addressing social and environmental issues. This forum is an opportunity to discuss where we've been and where things are headed."

Forum registration is $99, with a super early bird rate of $49 available until June 30. Visit www.nexteconomyforum.com for more information and to register.

The Soul of the Next Economy Forum is a partnership amongst the Calgary Microcredit Conference, Ambrose University College, and The Fig Tree Foundation.
