An online discussion with renowned Prof. Stephen Kempster from Lancaster University:

What is the purpose of business? Steve will offer an answer to this question by arguing that business has the potential to be the greatest mechanism on the planet to enhance humanity, if it can galvanise purpose-led leadership to generate good growth through realising Good Dividends. Find out how you, your organization, and your community can thrive through purposeful leadership! Imagine a child asking a parent what the purpose of business is: ‘well if medicine is to health, and law is to justice, business is to human flourishing’.
