By putting itself to the service of others, by putting purpose above profit, and by putting shared responsibility and prosperity as the kitemarks of success, business can be the catalyst for the transformative progress the world desperately needs. The central message of ‘Legacy’ could not therefore be more pertinent. Business truly can change the world. And as this book shows, everyone can make their own individual contribution.

When taken together and properly channelled, each individual contribution, each humanitarian gesture – no matter how small – be it from a volunteer or a corporation, amounts to a potentially massive force for good, a force for alleviating suffering. This book and the people who helped write it are a great example of collaboration to provide a much bigger impact than each one of us can make alone.
