Reflection on Relevance of Caux Round Table Principles for Business Ahead of Global Dialogue

We are getting close to the opening of the Global Dialogue on the evening of July 25, with sessions on the following two days, July 26 and 27.  If you are thinking about joining us, please let us know if you can within the next week.

You can register here.

I was reminded by Bob MacGregor, our chairman emeritus and the moving force behind the Caux Round Table Principles for Business, that the final discussion and agreement on those Principles took place at Mountain House in 1993 – 30 years ago.

Professor Kenneth Goodpaster of the University of St. Thomas here in St. Paul, Minnesota, has just sent me reflections on the principles after those 30 years have passed.  Ken was the wise adviser in the drafting process and we are indebted to his service.

I attach a copy here of his reflections on our time being a new one with new challenges.  Your insights and courage in meeting those challenges are needed by our global community.

I do hope to see you in Caux in about two and a half weeks.
