Patrick Honan -Â KilrushÂ Ireland I am an entrepreneur, owner of True Brand . In my work I try to keep faithful to the principle that “While we love innovation and progress, we believe that business should exist to develop and serve people, instead of humanity becoming a mere commodity to serve profit.” “We believe in people being brought together to cooperatein a fair, progressive and nurturing environment. Mankindâ€™s capacity has increased dramatically, as technology has shown. This new capacity is shrinking the world around us and eliminating barriers between us, rendering old business and political models obsolete and connecting us all.” For these reasons I am particularly interested in Values Based Leadership
Contribution to ebbf: by working with others to develop a model for explaining to the business world, the fundamentals of the transition they find themselves in. From a branding context, businesses that align their values with the spirit of the times and become a vehicle for connecting the world are the ones that will thrive. This is ‘Spiritual Branding’. I want to drive this concept and infuse businesses with this attitude as, I am sure, does EBBF.
My current burning issue is to connect with like-minded people.
