The CC Breakfast Club is a quarterly learning series for those ready to take a deeper dive into the "how" of Conscious Capitalism. Each breakfast meeting focuses on one of the four tenets that enable you to build a more conscious business.

Through a mix of education and group interaction, you will learn how to apply the tenet within your own business and have access to a community of practice for questions and insights. At the next session, we'll check-in to see how things went, and then we'll move into the next tenet.

This session takes a deeper dive into principles and practices of HIGHER PURPOSE.

These sessions are stand-alone events, meaning you can join in at any point in the series. We'll be sure newcomers have a solid start point to join in with confidence, and you can always monitor the follow-up discussions in the CCPortland FB group.

Come as a team or come individually. Enjoy the professional and team development as you build a strong, supportive community of like-minded business leaders in Portland and Vancouver.
