Join Gavin Watson as he explores the principles of Conscious Capitalism based on two decades of research in the fields of positive psychology, organizational psychology, and evolutionary biology.

He focused on employee engagement through a self-organizing self-directed team approach. Passionate about saving our planet’s ecosystem at work and at home, Watson mentored and encouraged teams to run energy audits and implement improvements that reduced electrical consumption by 25% while also growing the business. He is now chair of the Connecticut Chapter of Conscious Capitalism, and he is a boat builder and sailor.
