For the anniversaries of the Deepwater Horizon disaster (4th) and the Rana Plaza factory collapse (1st), I wrote a post for The Atlantic: "Why Corporations Fail to Do the Right Thing
." It generated by far the most conversation of anything I've written to date!
I did a video interview on WSJ Live
to accompany a column I was quoted in, "When It Comes to Work, Can You Care Too Much?
My book is May's feature of the month for Amherst Reads
, which means you can listen to an interview, read a review, and more.
Last night I was a guest on the BBC World Service's Business Matters program
(the episode is titled "South Africans Prepare To Go To The Polls," first broadcast May 6). The discussion of my book starts at 26:39, though the show has guests comment on other stories of the day, which I do (on the new Amazon-Twitter partnership) starting at 12:14.
I have a few events
this month along the Acela corridor; in June I'll be in San Diego for the Sustainable Brands conference
, L.A., and probably Chicago. I'd welcome ideas for venues and hosts: would your organization like to have me in (physically or virtually) for a talk?
As we enter commencement season, are there soon-to-be-graduates in your life who are thinking about working in, with, or against companies, who might benefit from my book's inside view of life in big business?
Finally, I'd be grateful if you could write a review of my book on Amazon; apparently Amazon bases its recommendations and rankings in part on the quantity (not quality) of reviews. Just a couple of sentences will do.
As always, I'd love to hear what's on your mind. Please hit 'reply' at any time with your thoughts and join me on Twitter and Facebook.
