In Place Impact
An Executive Education Program on 
Leadership & Management
Through the Lens of
Profit for Purpose
Executive Education

In 1992, the Queen of England summed up her year as “annus horribilis” (a horrible year), and no one in America could be blamed for using that moniker to describe the 12 months March 2020 - February 2021.  COVID19 and civil unrest took their toll on all of us, while at the same time mandating that we embrace new forms of leadership and management practices.


Thus, as current or potential business owners, leaders, and managers there may not have been a more important time in our business careers to embrace the tsunami of change coming our way.


Data now shows that the futures highest and most sustainable corporate profits will be delivered by executives who embrace the Leadership and Management philosophy of Profit for Purpose. Those who have already done so are now experiencing the highest:

  • Revenues

  • Margins

  • Profits

  • Brand equity, brand value, and brand recognition

  • Customer and employee retention rates

  • Possible chance to hire the best and brightest talent

  • Positive Impact on communities and their environments


Seven years ago, In Place Impact partnered with The School of Business, The College of Charleston, to start embedding Profit for Purpose studies within its undergraduate and graduate programs. Today, the partnership is revered as a center for excellence in helping heads of corporations and governments adopt, embed, and benefit from today’s most successful leadership and management strategies.


In order to help as many companies as possible, In Place Impact and The School of Business at the College of Charleston have now launched Executive Education programs designed to immediately help current and or future owners, leaders, and managers steer their companies to become stronger, more profitable, and have greater positive impact on all stakeholders than ever before. 


"Just the value of the time and intellectual capital we receive from Stuart Williams is worth tens of thousands of dollars. Add to that the friendships we build with like-minded people, the profound positive impact we have on our companies, and the impact we have in our communities and the value becomes priceless"
