I’m delighted and humbled to be included amongst the exclusive global network of Nadine Hack, Leader of beCause Global Consulting. Nadine is a thought leader in the area of responsible and sustainable leadership over 30 years and has recently formalised her global network of trusted associates. Take a look at the incredible cast of experts on The beCause Website.
I asked Nadine to explain more.
Peter: What’s uniquely valuable about this network?
Nadine: The beCause network is truly global. We cover The Americas, Europe, Africa, Asia and The Middle East, with multilingual, multidisciplinary capabilities. Our core is represented in this model:
The beCause network adds specific capacities in social media, sustainability, conflict resolution, entrepreneurship, executive search, gender equity, design, public relations and much more.
Peter: What has driven the development?
Nadine: On the one hand, corporates increasingly demand that their partners exhibit size and scale around the world. Whilst we have that size and scale, it is not immediately apparent to some of the people who source our expertise. The network makes this collective capability visible. At a purely personal level, I am thrilled to highlight people with the highest integrity and who therefore can make an important contribution to the world in which we are entering, where sustainable business practices and ethical leadership are no longer nice to have, but essentials in a world which badly needs transformational change.
Peter: What are your hopes for the network?
Nadine: I’ve always believed in teams and the power of collaboration. It’s something that I help my clients achieve within their organizations. And, I’m proud to model it in my own company by introducing an extraordinary network of diverse talent from around the world.
For an insight into Nadine’s work take a look at an extract from one of her talks below on sustainable business practice. This highlights her extensive experience that sustainable business is good business for all concerned. This is no longer a fringe activity, it is core business as companies like Unilever, Microsoft, Wal-Mart and so on will tell you. The network has already attracted interest from companies around the world for various services, including one that is interested to develop their leadership capabilities in terms of ethical behaviour around the world, another that wants to develop their social media presence and so on.
For me personally, I’m delighted to be part of such a superb group of collaborators. As Archimedes said:
“Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it and I shall move the world”
Nadine Hack’s beCause Network offers to multiply Archimedes’ principle many times.
