Recent news of the record donations towards the Notre Dame rebuilding have re-opened the conversation about how materialism should serve the community. Clearly ebbf’s RethinkMaterialism annual conference addresses a very timely theme;
we aim to avoid superficial conclusions and instead go deep into exploring the underlying assumptions that are sustaining old materialistic approaches.
LESS THAN A MONTH TO GO:
Invite your colleagues and friends to explore with people who have registered literally from all over the world, to rethink meaningfully and then find applications in our workplaces of a new, better, way to balance material and spiritual to build the future of business and of society.

Two questions will be at the centre of the second opportunity to meet and enjoy ebbf’s online learning experience in the run-up to the #rethinkmaterialism annual conference :
– what were the reactions of your colleagues when you asked them about the underlying reasons for materialistic goals in their workplace?
What happened when the conversation was introduced to them? And during the exchange?
– what did you learn about those underlying assumptions?
Find out more about how we can transition our workplace away from purely and only materialstic goals to a more balanced workplace.

YOU CAN NOW VIEW the first ebbf online learning experience in the run-up to the annual conference.
We started to rethinkmaterialism (the theme of ebbf’s next annual conference) and explored how to transition our careers and workplaces to balance our natural material needs with our spiritual essence.
How can we start to make that happen in our companies? How can we start conversations in our workplaces? How are others approaching this transition in their organizations? Those were some of the questions we addressed during the online event.
