The Entrepreneurs’ Organisation (EO), a global organisation exclusively for entrepreneurs, hosted an event recently to inform and educate its members on ‘Establishing [an] Abundance Culture’.
The event, conducted by Kareem Mareek, was held on 6 December 2019 at the Galle Face Hotel.
Committed to helping entrepreneurs learn and grow their businesses through peer-to-peer learning and an invaluable network of experts sharing their insights, experiences and know-how, the event took a tactical approach on how to establish an ‘Abundance Culture’ in workplaces.
This involved a discussion around role theory, deep democracy and aspirations of paradigm shifts that people have.
The focus on an abundance culture deals with the idea of creating a shared world where people are inspired by, learn from and act with each other to progress – ultimately causing a chain reaction of inspiring more people to do the same. The aim of the program is based on the idea of growing together and thus growing better.
