Carolyn Butler-Madden

Author  |  Speaker  | Podcaster | Purpose Activist

I’m available to speak on a range of themes linked to purpose, social purpose and business as a force for good.


I’m passionate about this topic. The whole point of speaking for me is to inspire others to embrace purpose in their business and their lives. I’m on a mission to accelerate this movement of business as a force for good. 


When I speak on this subject, my mantra is “profit with purpose”. I inspire my audience by sharing stories, but I also give confidence by sharing the commercial impact of purpose-driven businesses and brands.
