On November 5, Doug Conant, former CEO of Campbell Soup Company, was honored by the Jonathan M. Tisch College of Citizenship and Public Service as the first Corporate Citizen Fellow. He received this honor for his “exemplary leadership and emphasis on sustainability and corporate social responsibility.”
His lecture, Embracing the Genius of the “and” – Delivering Economic “and” Social Value, gave attendees a peak into how Conant approached leading Campbell and the personal factors that drove him to the success he has today.
Throughout the lecture he emphasized the importance of “touchpoints” and using every moment we share with others to make a positive impact in their lives. He also gave specific advice to students who wish to succeed in the business world while staying true to their active citizen roots.
