Millennials entering the workforce are profoundly changing the face of the corporate world. Not content just to make money, they crave purpose, kindness, and sustainability. Even traditional companies like CISCO have introduced kindness as a key business advantage—with solid business results. Their share price has doubled. Even Forbes and the Harvard Business Review recommend this not-so-new philosophy, re-tooled as a business practice.The message is simple: karma and kindness are good for people and for business.But how do we do kindness, as people, as teams, as organizations?Based on her book Karma in Action ~ How to Use Karma and Kindness to Grow Your Business for Prosperity and Success, Joanne’s keynote is lighthearted and meaningful. She shares her own journey in dealing with the shift from doing a job out of fear to working from joy. It’s a highly interactive session, as Joanne believes that every one of us can create great karma when we get into it—and that the perfect time is right now. Her workshops take people and teams through eight simple daily actions they can easily put into practice to increase the kindness in their daily lives, improve their job performance, sales, and cash flow, and radically increase the quality and quantity of the love they give and receive.

“A poignant and timely reminder that the corporate world as a whole has gone through a cathartic change in the last two decades. Leadership is about empowering those whom you serve. What legacy will you leave behind? How will your teams remember you in ten years’ time? Karma in Action is a highly recommended book by a true modern-day Renaissance thinker.”

—Hema Prakash, Board Member and Asia CEO of Two Unicorns,
