In a world where nothing is certain and everything is on the line, how do leaders guide their companies to greatness? Season 2 of CNBC five-part series sponsored by Credit Suisse is a global strategy session with some of the world’s brightest minds. Hosted by CNBC’s Simon Hobbs and featuring a renowned panel of experts, the series delves into provocative issues facing five key sectors and outlines real-time, empowering strategies for success.

In this episode entitled, Executive Vision: Leadership in Action – Philanthropy:

Philanthropy is creating a new capital market. Could this new exchange have even more value than equity markets? Indeed it can, and it’s a product of something called philanthrocapitalism: dynamic business paradigms and investment strategies that have redefined our “giving DNA” and are helping us fuel prosperity and progress across the globe.

In this hour we will look at philanthropy, not just as the business of giving, but as a moneymaking machine that touches everything around us, including media, technology and infrastructure. We talk with the leaders who are helping to build this new capital market, and get their insight on how giving helps create a smarter generation with more efficient government, better health care, and access to higher-quality education. Finally, we ask our leaders some pressing questions about the unrealized benefits and pitfalls of philanthrocapitalism, and how corporations use their human capital and charitable donations to benefit the world and increase shareholder value.

Guests include: Paul Barry-Walsh, Fredericks Foundation Founder & Chairman; Matthew Bishop, The Economist N.Y. Bureau Chief and U.S. Business Editor; Mary Schmidt Campbell, Tisch School of the Arts at New York University Dean; Andy Kaplan, Chief Financial Officer; Gail McGovern, American Red Cross President & CEO; David Saltzman, Robin Hood Foundation Executive Director; and Isadore Sharp, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts Founder and Chairman.
