Chitra Sessions by Thought Leader Global presents Per L. Saxegaard Business for Peace Foundation
Quoting Dickens’ ‘Tale of Two cities’ is how Per L. Saxegaard, Founder and Executive Chairman of Business for Peace Foundation, reflects on the current state of the world yet is optimistic as he recalls seeing great shifts and changing dynamics over the last years regarding business thinking.The Business for Peace Foundation recognizes global business leaders who foster peace, stability, and the greater good of society through their business efforts and brings humanity back into business by awarding these honorees for their enlightened and purpose- driven choices, which add value to the societies within which they operate. For which they’ve coined the term ‘businessworthy’
Per’s own experience as an investment banker catalyzed and inspired the creation of the foundation. Having learned to meditate at the age of 20, Per cites authenticity of being as essential in leadership and firmly believes that the passions, the principles and the purpose of a leader will shape a business for good or for bad. ‘Trust’ he says, ‘ is the single most important enabler of success in business.’
We caught up with Per at Chitra House Norway for an engaging and enlightening Chitra Session.
