"Compassion in Business on a Global Scale"


Cynthia Figge, Board Director of Compassionate Action Network, invites you to end your work week by joining us for a conversation about compassion in business with Anil Sachdev, founder and CEO of the School of Inspired Leadership, Gurgaon, India. SOIL India is a consortium of thirty three prestigious Indian businesses offering a Masters level certification that focuses on compassion as one of five pillars of inspired leadership.

Anil has a deep background applying compassion in business. He is a serial entrepreneur: having founded several flourishing Indian consulting businesses that focus on total quality performance by growing employee gifts and creative potential.

He is a core faculty member of an International Executive Development program for senior business executives that meets seasonally in Europe, the United States and India. He is also a valued consultant to the Indian government on matters such as improving educational quality, improving child health and nutrition, and reducing labor violence and conflict.

If you live in Seattle (where our office is located), we hope you'll join us at our inaugural public Compassion Conversation series.
