Books we recommend

There’s so much material that looks at strategies like shared value and how to do better business, so we thought we would share with you our current favourite reads:

The Business of Building a Better World – David Cooperrider & Audrey Selian

Sarah’s pick: How business can and must rethink its relationship with society is underway – this book brings leading academics and practitioners at the forefront of this shift together in one place. You’ll move from one inspiring thinker to another, concluding that what got us here won’t get us to there… this is a time for innovation and ambition, for bravery, a time to create value in new ways. It’s a must read.


Converge – Dr Catherine Ball

Liz’s pick: Coming from a technology background, I know first-hand just how powerful technology can be in supporting innovation and advancement in some of our most critical social issues. All it takes is a willingness to commit and to work together (and perhaps a little investment too)

Purpose and Profit: How Business Can Lift Up the World – George Serafeim


Green Swans: The Coming Boom in Regenerative Capitalism – John Elkington


Net Positive: How Courageous Companies Thrive by Giving More Than They Take – Paul Polman & Andrew Winston
