Howard speaks and consults on various subjects related to business and transformation. He has an abiding and deep interest in the intersection of social responsibility, rights, business, ethics and capitalism.
With an unusual academic background in religious studies combined with practical business experience, he has a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities of those tasked with bringing profit oriented practices together with social good and the triple bottom line.
Drawing on both his business experiences and academic background, Howard likes to speak to educational and political audiences about the meta structural and moral issues in capitalism itself and to business audiences about the challenges of running a business with more than just a profit vision. He has a particular interest in the impulses and ideas driving the emergence of the new social enterprise phenomenon and the ways in which individuals and businesses can and should respond to these changes. He believes that the social transformation of business is not only good for the planet but business itself.
