We love it when outsiders come to visit us and share their wisdom with the Fools here at Motley Fool HQ. But did you know that our very own co-founders are celebrated speakers and thought leaders, too? Years of dedication, collaboration, and innovation have led to well-respected reputations, and both David and Tom are represented by the Washington Speakers Bureau.
Earlier this year, the Gardner brothers were recognized as Conscious Capitalism Heroes. Conscious Capitalism lies at the forefront of our business, and its four principles encourage better decision-making across the company. The Motley Fool’s purpose is “to help the world invest – better,” though it’s important to note that “conscious businesses focus on their purpose beyond profit.” Why? Because “employees, customers and others trust and even love companies that have an inspiring purpose.”
Fools embody our company’s mission, perhaps as seriously as the four tenets of Conscious Capitalism. According to the philosophy, culture is valued because it “connects the stakeholders to each other and to the company’s purpose, people and processes.” Different perspectives, like those gained through our @ TheFool speaker series, help to continue innovation around the business.
Fools believe that Conscious Capitalism is key to helping the world invest – better. The Motley Fool strives to create positive impacts, whether investing is applied to money management or workplace culture. Tom gave the closing remarks at Conscious Capitalism’s CEO summit this year and his keynote represents our company’s passion for this movement. Also part of the presentation was Tom’s interview with John Mackey, a leader in Conscious Capitalism and a Motley Fool Board member.
Conscious Capitalism helps The Motley Fool drive our higher purpose, and Fools are lucky to have our co-founders as accessible resources every day.
