SMG Celebrates Conscious Business

On January 16, Studio Movie Grill Founder and CEO Brian Schultz joined leaders committed to conscious business in Chicago and on the South Side for a Conscious Capitalism - Chicago panel. In addition to celebrating conscious business in action, the panel also discussed how Studio Movie Grill's purpose of "Opening Hearts and Minds, One Story at a Time®" is experienced by our five stakeholders: guests, community, team members, vendors, and investors. Many participants in The Greenwood Project, a non-profit focused on introducing youth to the financial industry, attended and learned from the event's speakers:

  • Brian Schultz, Founder & CEO, Studio Movie Grill
  • Aaron Thomas, General Manager, SMG Chatham
  • Michelle Kennedy, Producer, Chicago South Side Film Festival
  • Cydni Polk, Owner, Xposeur Photography
  • Howard Brookins, Jr., 21st Ward Alderman

WE BELIEVE THAT BUSINESS IS GOOD, ETHICAL, NOBLE & HEROIC

About Conscious Capitalism: We believe that business is good because it creates value, it is ethical because it is based on voluntary exchange, it is noble because it can elevate our existence, and it is heroic because it lifts people out of poverty and creates prosperity. Free enterprise capitalism is the most powerful system for social cooperation and human progress ever conceived. It is one of the most compelling ideas we humans have ever had. But we can aspire to even more. Conscious Capitalism is a way of thinking about capitalism and business that better reflects where we are in the human journey, the state of our world today, and the innate potential of business to make a positive impact on the world. Conscious businesses are galvanized by higher purposes that serve, align, and integrate the interests of all their major stakeholders. Their higher state of consciousness makes visible to them the interdependencies that exist across all stakeholders, allowing them to discover and harvest synergies from situations that otherwise seem replete with trade-offs. They have conscious leaders who are driven by service to the company’s purpose, all the people the business touches, and the planet we all share together. Conscious businesses have trusting, authentic, innovative and caring cultures that make working there a source of both personal growth and professional fulfillment. They endeavor to create financial, intellectual, social, cultural, emotional, spiritual, physical and ecological wealth for all their stakeholders. Conscious businesses will help evolve our world so that billions of people can flourish, leading lives infused with passion, purpose, love and creativity; a world of freedom, harmony, prosperity, and compassion.
