In this fast-moving, digital world, many businesses focus on short-term results driven solely by return on investment at the expense of their people, their customers, and even themselves.
We believe there is another way.
We believe that business can be beautiful. We believe that doing the right thing gets results. We believe that having a clear purpose and standing up for what you believe in is the secret to building a beautiful, sustainable business – something to be really proud of. It can also be a huge amount of fun.
Something beautiful is coming...
What is a beautiful business?
Beautiful business isn’t an abstract concept. Beautiful business is a real, actionable and proven way of thriving in the business world. What’s beautiful to me might not be beautiful to you though; you decide.
We naturally gravitate towards working with businesses with soul; businesses that are at the centre of enriching, human experiences. Our mission is to make it easy for people to build beautiful businesses.
Beautiful businesses are…
Beautiful by design
Beauty doesn’t happen by chance; it happens by design.
Even the most technologically-advanced, automated businesses are still people businesses at their core.
Beautiful businesses are built to last; taking a long-term view, resisting the temptations of shortcuts, however alluring the shortcut may be.
Driven by purpose
An authentic purpose can override the need for complex management structures and behaviours.
Make it remarkable. Stand out. What is it you do that someone is going to tell one other person about? What do you want to be famous for?
Beautiful businesses care for the planet
Beautiful businesses are sustainably-run. They care for the planet and create a better world for all of us to enjoy.
In his book on the success of the All Blacks, Legacy, James Kerr talks about the idea of planting trees you’ll never see grow. Build something that leaves a legacy, that creates an impact.
