I enjoyed Ed Freeman’s lecture he managed to communicate many concepts and great examples in only an hour.
I would have asked him what he would suggest that simple consumers do in order to support organizations that value their stakeholders. I was curious what his views are about boycotting and protesting.
I believe the question has value due to the fact that not all of us want to be entrepreneurs (as seen after he asked the question to the audience). In our work we will undoubtedly have decisions to make that will impact the company’s shareholders, but we also have a role to play when we engage in consumption. Being aware of our impact would therefore help changing culture surrounding business.
