Sum and Substance is coming to Phoenix

by | Apr 20, 2016 | Blog

Have you found fulfillment and purpose in your work?

On April 28, join Conscious Company Magazine as they present Sum and Substance Phoenix, hosted by Conscious Capitalism® Arizona and Thrive Consulting. The event will bring together six diverse business leaders in an evening of enlightenment, motivation and mingling to share their personal stories and inspire others to go forth and do good work.

”Across the country, people are unleashing their passion, creativity, and entrepreneurialism in their jobs and companies to make work meaningful,” said Maren Keeley, Co-Founder of Conscious Company Magazine.

Sum and Substance Phoenix will showcase six people who will share their personal journey to find fulfilling work and each will leave the audience with a unique challenge. These challenges will spark new ideas, partnerships and opportunities.

“Stories affect us in a way that statistics cannot.  The data show us that purpose and meaning matter most. We’re after the stories of the people who prove it,” said Meghan French Dunbar, Co-Founder Conscious Company Magazine.

Rather than sitting in a conference room watching an endless presentation of power point slides, Sum and Substance sets the stage for an intimate evening of real stories, told by real people. Phoenix attendees can look forward to hearing stories from:

Adam Goodman, President of Goodmans Interior Structures

Brian Mueller, President & CEO of Grand Canyon University

Heidi Jannenga, President & Co-Founder of WebPT

Kimber Lanning, Executive Director of Local First Arizona

Laura Roberts, CEO of Pantheon Enterprises

Nilima Bhat, Co-author of Shakti Leadership and Founder-Director of Sampurnah
