Book Launch: Andrew Winston's The Big Pivot: Doing Business in a Hotter, Scarcer World

Hosted by Bard MBA in Sustainability

Wednesday, May 7, 2014

Please join Bard MBA in Sustainability as we host Andrew Winston, bestselling author of Green to Gold, for the launch of his new book, The Big Pivot! You'll enjoy refreshments, a talk and Q&A with Andrew about the ideas and themes in his new book, a free copy of The Big Pivot complements of Unilever, and a book signing.

Seating and books are strictly limited to the first 70 guests to arrive and a ticket is required. Please contact Caitlin O'Donnell, at codonnel@bard.edu for more information.

THE BIG PIVOT
Radically Practical Strategies for a
Hotter, Scarcer, and More Open World
Andrew S. Winston

We live in a fundamentally changed world. It’s time for your approach to strategy to change, too.

The evidence is all around us. Extreme weather, driven by climate change, is shattering records all over the planet. Our natural resources are under intense pressure as a billion more people enter the global middle class, demanding more of everything. Radical transparency is opening up company operations and supply chains to public scrutiny.

This is not some futuristic scenario or model to debate, but reality today. We've passed an economic tipping point. A weakening of the foundations of our planetary infrastructure is costing business dearly and putting our society at risk. The mega-challenges of climate change, scarcity, and radical transparency threaten our ability to run an expanding global economy and profoundly change “business as usual.” But they also offer unprecedented opportunities: multi-trillion-dollar markets are in play and the winners of this new game will profit mightily.

According to Andrew Winston, bestselling author (Green to Gold) and globally recognized business strategist, the way companies currently operate will not allow them to keep up with the current—and future—rate of change. They need to make the big pivot.

In this indispensable new book, Winston provides ten crucial strategies for leaders and companies ready to move boldly forward and win in this new reality. With concrete advice and tactics, and new stories from companies like BT, Diageo, Dow, Ford, Nike, Unilever, Walmart, and many others, The Big Pivot will help you, and all of us, create more resilient businesses and a more prosperous world. This book is the blueprint to get you started now.

Advance Praise for The Big Pivot

“Andrew Winston’s The Big Pivot is the blinking red warning light on the dashboard for every CEO...He lays out a road map for a major shift in consciousness and purpose for the private sector.”
−David Crane, President and CEO, NRG Energy

“We’ve reached a tipping point. Our planet and our society are at risk… Andrew Winston’s The Big Pivot offers a radical new direction for business that also represents the most practical path forward...a must-read for anyone interested in the future of business and our world.”
−Paul Polman, CEO, Unilever

“...Winston’s practical approach to the largest issues of our generation makes his a voice that’s respected by the world’s leaders in politics, NGOs, and business.”
−David Steiner, CEO, Waste Management

“...Winston’s most important and impactful work to date—better even than Green to Gold. It’s a wake-up call for you, your boss, and whoever sits in the corner office . . .”
−L. Hunter Lovins, founder and President,
  Natural Capital Solutions; coauthor, The Way Out

“A resounding call to action for business to embrace the risks of climate change, resource constraints, and radical transparency and turn them into strategic growth opportunities...a must-read road map for business success in the twenty-first century.”
−Jeff Seabright, Vice President,
   Environment & Water Resources, Coca-Cola
