What is People First All About?

Nothing less than putting people back into the center of ‘The Business Equation’.

People First - All Else Follows. It’s a simple rule, but not well understood - much less followed. Our goal is to explore how people have increasingly taken a back seat in society as we have allowed unfettered and unelected power to ‘corporates’.

What can people and businesses do to mitigate the downside? I choose ‘and’ because if business does not understand the importance of People First and include that thinking in their strategies, they too will be run over by the unfettered power of the ‘megacorps’.

People First lays the groundwork for people both inside and outside of business to understand how they can better work and engage to create a ‘People First World’.
