When the duck speaks

At the end of the recent Nestlé Responsible Sourcing Studio in Thailand, I asked the nine Responsible Sourcing team members a simple question: “What did you learn about your duck this week?” For the uninitiated, it seems an odd question – your duck? For those nine Nestlé colleagues, it meant a great deal. It was an invitation to share something about their soul.
