About this talk

As we stand on the threshold of a new era, what factors will lead to organisational success? In an increasingly virtual world, how will teams be able to come out stronger than before? More personally, how can your work stop being a daily grind and give you energy instead?

The answer is to all three questions is Purpose. Increasingly purpose-driven companies are leading the way.

Who are the Purpose Collective:

The Purpose Collective is a trio of purpose pioneers with a shared passion. We want to create a buzz about making work meaningful so that each person feels energised by what they do, day-to-day. We want to build a network of leaders who have conversations about making a difference. We want to see positive change happen: in organisations, teams and individuals.

Sarah Rozenthuler is the author of ‘Powered by Purpose’ (FT Press, 2020), a business psychologist and Founder of Bridgework and has worked with organisations including BP, Standard Chartered, and the World Bank.

Chris Blackwell is the Founder of Purpose Led Performance and works with Scale-Ups as a catalyst for high growth, but putting purpose at the heart of their heart of what they do.

Alberto Gonzalez Otero is the Chief Purpose Officer at Just on Purpose and a Lecturer on International Business at the Hague University of Applied Sciences.

Chris Blackwell

Chris Blackwell is the Founder of Purpose Led Performance and works with Scale-Ups as a catalyst for high growth, but putting purpose at the heart of their heart of what they do. Chris Blackwell’s passion is providing leadership development and consultancy to Scale-ups. Chris is an experienced CEO and has led organisations that have achieved incredible growth. Early in his career, he helped Ingeus grow from £4m revenue to £120m in ten years and subsequently helped MAXIMUS grow from £25m revenue to £170m in under four years. Those experiences inspired the S.W.I.F.T model for sustainable growth, which sets out the foundations for successful growth and the five key-skills and stages of growth. Chris’s first book, ‘Purpose First – the vital ingredient for swift and sustainable growth’ will be published at the end of 2020.

Sarah Rozenthuler has a passion for engaging teams to do great work. When a team becomes purpose-led, rather than dominated by a strong personality, it achieves extraordinary results. Sarah joined the Purpose Collective as Covid-19 took hold and made more conventional ways of working impossible. Sarah has discovered how purpose is a magnet for collaboration even when a team can’t get in the same room together. As the most potent unit of change in an organisation, Sarah loves to help teams go on the journey to become purpose-led.
