Sustainable Business Fridays:The Gospel of Doubt

Friday, September 4, 2015, 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
On September 4th, Bard MBA in Sustainability will be speaking with Manoj Fenelon, Director of Foresight & Innovation for PepsiCo about The Gospel of Doubt.

He has a graduate degree in the study of emotion and has absorbed lessons from experiences across advertising, academia, market research, business strategy, insights and innovation (none of which approach the educational value of starting and running a foresight practice at the world’s 44th biggest company). Manoj is also a First Mover (Intrapreneurship) Fellow at the Aspen Institute, and believes that business – oriented purposefully – can be a net asset to society
