Matt Peterson: What is the business case for generosity?

“Today, the business case for doing generosity is doing well by doing good and doing good by doing well, and that means giving back to your customers, giving back to your employees, and giving back to your community, and that’s the global community at large. Not only that, it’s about helping empower every one of your stakeholders to be citizens, not just consumers of your products, and being active in aligning with them in that way.” — Matt Petersen

Arthur Rubinfeld: What is the business case for generosity?

“Business generosity is in job generation, investing in communities you do business in, and really expanding on the philanthropic efforts by giving back to communities we do business in. For example, community housing and community development in Harlem. A few weeks ago we announced a new program where the profits of one of the stores is going directly to the community in Harlem, that serves that customer base in our store there.” — Arthur Rubinfeld

Henrik Fisker : What is social innovation?

“I think social innovation is when you start thinking about what’s changing in the world socially and what type of lifestyle change is happening. And I think when you look at the world, you really can see there’s a lot of people adopting a new lifestyle. It’s really about being green, it’s about being environmentally friendly, it’s about responsible luxury. And that’s really what Fisker is all about. By coming up with new products, you start changing this entire environment and you actually start moving it forward, and I think that’s what we are doing right now.” — Henrik Fisker

Peter Glatzer: What is social innovation?

“Social innovation may mean different things to different people, but to me, in reference to Shft.com and our business, I think it means being able to use new media to reach hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of people to shift people’s attitudes as consumers. When consumers are empowered with that kind of innovation, businesses respond. So the power really lies in the consumer. If we buy green or sustainable materials, businesses will supply them.” — Peter Glatzer

Renee Kuriyan Wittemyer: What is social innovation?

“Social innovation holds great potential to transform economies, to fuel innovation, which is very important to Intel, and to improve the lives of people around the world. And so, we have three different areas that we focus that on: one is around social entrepreneurship, and really creating social enterprises. The second is developing technology solutions, which is what Intel does, to tackle social challenges. And then the third is really partnering and creating an enabling ecosystem under which social innovation can flourish.” — Renee Kuriyan Wittemyer

Tom Adamski: What is the business case for generosity?

“Generosity in an agency is an interesting topic. You have two currencies in an agency; you have ideas and you have time. Being generous with both of those are really the basis for trusted relationships, both colleague to colleague, and from staff to client. So the challenge is how do you model that. And it’s up to the executives to model generosity with time and generosity with ideas, out on the floor, in midst of the agency, and in front of the clients.” — Tom Adamski

Pete Selleck: What is the business case for generosity?

“Generosity, in the end, is simply the consequence of respect. At Michelin, we seek to optimize the amount of respect we pay to the universe and our stake holders. Now, who are our stake holders? The first stake holders are always our customers, but it also includes our employees, our shareholders, the communities in we operate, and all of the other people who have an important interest in our company.” — Pete Selleck

Shannon Schuyler: What is the business case for generosity?

“The business case for generosity is really something that is multifaceted. For some people, it’s just about doing the right thing; for other people, it’s about how do you drive your brand as a company; and for other people, it’s about revenue and it’s about growth. At the end of the day, it’s really about wanting to bring people together. At PWC, it’s wanting to come together, regardless of why, but really have a generous spirit and see what we can do when we are all together.” — Shannon Schuyler
