Chris Lloyd ’83, Director of Public Policy and Corporate Responsibility for Verizon Communications
The role of business in society is changing. Corporations are not focused on just making money. The best corporate citizens view societal challenges as opportunities for business innovation and seek to create value for shareholders and for society.
Chris Lloyd ’83 shared insights regarding how Verizon is connecting its growth strategy to addressing some of society’s critical issues. You may not think of Verizon as a health care or energy company, but Chris explained Verizon’s “Shared Success” strategy and how the company is using its broadband and wireless technology to enable solutions that improve the quality of health care and enable communities to improve their energy efficiency.
This talk was given on November 2, 2012 as part of the Middlebury Center for Social Entrepreneurship’s (MCSE) weekly speaker series.
