Whether irresponsible or already responsible, this quarter’s issue of the Council’s free Global Voice eMagazine will prove a most knowledgeable way of positively transforming yourself, business, and society.
This quarter’s business and society-oriented articles cover such key issues as the shadow economy – are there indeed benefits enough for governments to tolerate it? – to the impact of digital innovation in China and a focus on the Japanese visionary and statesman Yukichi Fukuzawa, perhaps a role model – in these times of protection and introspection – the world could wisely use. Management and leadership features include revealing research into how your skills in emotional intelligence can increase your salary, and an exploration of former Puma CEO Jochen Zeitz and how his life journey led him to make the company one of the world’s most effective endorsers of sustainability. Entrepreneurship is also a key theme of this issue with articles highlighting research into women entrepreneurs in Brazil, entrepreneurship in China, and the moral of Icarus and Travis Kalanic, the recently ousted CEO of Uber. And finally, the CSR section tackles the themes of energy, philanthropy, business ethics and Chinese CSR strategies.
Global Voice reached out to almost eight thousand people in issue #1 – a very encouraging first success – and we would like to thank our readers for also joining us on our Twitter page as a result. I’m sure this quarter’s Global Voice will meet with even greater success, a bright perspective in higher visibility also provided by the fact that the Council has just launched its website offering a host of free downloads and with a page specially dedicated to our eMagazine.
