Zen Cafes. Introducing the published works of Patrick Dixon.

The relentless pursuit of profit can result in a


systemically dysfunctional enterprise or
organisation.
If you are an investor, manager or employer you
should be aware of the warning signs before too
late.

Don’t take our word for it! See the film, buy the
DVD or read the book: www.thecorporation.com.

There are alternatives to investing in risky


ventures!

Careers with us
If you are a recent graduate or entrepreneur or you are interested in making an
independent living, running an enterprise or being a business advisor there is
something you should know:

 Principles of Profitable Organisation


 Principles of Natural Harmony: Brand Management for the 21st Century.

Both these courses are available to Eco-graduates who apply for a place to study
with us on a weekend course or 5-day residential seminar.

Career Support
Graduates of our Graduate School courses (Euro
Graduates or Eco-graduates) can apply for Career
Support or Enterprise Support services, to enable them
to live and work in the city and country of choice, on an
independent basis, or as a member of the Eco-graduate
network.

Co-venture opportunity
Those who understand the principles of co-operation can
work with us, as Co-ventures in Zen Cafes, based on the
examples of: World Food Café in Covent Garden, The Hub, London, Edinburgh,
Johannesburg, Bristol and Flow Internet Cafes.

Social Enterprise commitment


A proportion of the proceeds of Freedom Cola go to: www.zaytoun.org and

The Secret
The secret of sustainable enterprise lies within. It lies with those who have
learned to read the marketplace, and learned to listen to their customers, using
intuition rather than data. When your customers have already made up their
minds, and switched their buying habits, it can be an expensive exercise to
reverse that decision!
