Social purpose in business has become increasingly important for employee engagement and customer retention, yet many leaders still struggle to understand what it means for their business. So, how can defining your purpose help you grow a profitable business that people love? Sharing inspiration from organizations such as Intrepid Travel, Patagonia, Unilever and PayPal, Butler-Madden explores the intrinsic connection between the two things that drive successful purpose-led businesses: Love (of people, planet and humanity – the raw emotion behind purpose) and Money (profit and commercial success).

Meanwhile you build a meaningful business for everyone involved; you attract invested employees, customers, and investors; and you build trust, the currency of a valued business.
