Tom Nixon’s blog – ‘Using democratic business & employee ownership to reinvent capitalism and make the world a happier and sustainable place’
Tom is the co-founder of NixonMcInnes, my original business partner and a great great guy. He is currently writing up a storm as he travels the world, kicking about issues around the reinvention of capitalism, employee ownership, and other good stuff.
Alan Moore – SMLXL
I am about a fifth of the way through Alan’s new book ‘No Straight Lines’ and I read that first chunk thinking ‘man, we are so on the same wavelength’. Alan’s style is different to mine – there’s a whole load more evidence, tons of references, and a different tone, but the story he is telling is the same I think. That is, things have to change fundamentally and disruptively.
Following Alan’s ongoing blog writings seems to be a clever thing to do, and grab the book too if you haven’t already.
Conscious Business UK – ‘Business, but different’
Conscious Business UK is a blog where a collective of likeminded people share ideas about the evolution of business. At the core of that collective are a few very smart people including Pete Burden and Lasy Lawless, who are both also directors and owners of NixonMcInnes (this isn’t a backslapping fest, honest), but in their spare time they wear other hats, growing a consultancy called SeeStep which seeks to develop ‘conscious business’.
The different perspectives on this blog work really well, and I particularly liked this post by Lasy on ‘Evidence for Conscious Business’ which is packed with credible research to back up these ideas we are all promoting.
Add these three further voices to your regular reading if you are as interested in this tidal wave of change we are seeing. This thing is big, and growing.
