The lineup for speakers at Michigan Ross’ inaugural Positive Business Conference, May 15-17, was released recently, and the list is pretty impressive. From the chief futurist at Ford Motor Company to executives from Proctor & Gamble and McKinsey, the event will bring together business leaders and thoughts leaders to discuss the most inspiring and practical approaches to building positive businesses.
Here’s a selection of some of the other C-suite speakers and companies on tap for the conference who you should be following on Twitter:
The co-CEO of Whole Foods, a company that can’t seem to stay out of the headlines for its positive business practices. The organic-focused grocery chain is blowing up across North America, and its @WholeFoodsPR account keeps you updated both on business growth and the growth of in-season produce.
Co-Founder and CEO of The Motley Fool, a multimedia financial services organization recently voted as one of the best companies to work for. Gardner himself is a much-sought-after investment expert, commentator, and educator who is a vocal champion for greater transparency in the financial services industry. His personal @TomGardnerFool account offers insights for leaders and thoughts on the market, as well as sharing the occasional comment on Sunday football games.
The Founder and CEO of the responsibly sourced chocolate company sweetriot, is looking to “fix the world” through candy. Endline’s tweets offer a behind-the-scenes look at the founder’s life, including her visits to the Super Bowl and New York Fashion week. And she also frequently tweets a heads up on discount deals for her chocolate treats. Yum! @sweetriot
The co-founder and CEO of Zingerman’s, the Ann-Arbor-based specialty food store and deli that operates a community of businesses whose unique business model inspires forward-thinking leaders from across the world. Follow @Zingermans for insights into that business model from Weinzweig’s other speaking engagements and crowd-pleasing gems like “14 Reasons We Can’t Live Without Bacon.”
