In this episode of Both Success And Integrity With Bessi Graham, Bessi is joined by investment specialist, Noah Beckwith, to discuss why sustainability is important in business and how it can converge with your profits.
Noah is a private equity and investment specialist working across Asia, Africa, and Latin America. As such, he brings a really genuine, global perspective to this conversation, with advisory mandates with some of the biggest names like the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Clinton Foundation, Bank of America, Asian Development Bank, and the foreign affairs departments in both the UK and Australia. One approach that can prove useful is to adopt a different perspective by stretching one’s viewpoint. It entails zooming out to gain a comprehensive understanding of the risks and opportunities that business leaders must consider to achieve sustained success. The experience in this area could provide valuable insights into the potential opportunities and challenges businesses face in the pursuit of profitability and social responsibility.
