Why Do We Need a Social Innovation Summit?

At a time where environmental and social issues are almost too complex for society to handle, we need to RAPIDLY accelerate cross sector collaboration and steer technologies toward solving problems.

The market is also changing, with consumers and employees now demanding purpose-driven business. This means that now is the perfect time for every organisation to learn how to gain competitive advantage and steer their digital strategies towards creating positive social impact.

To develop leadership for a sustainable world, requires the perspectives and insights from leaders across every sector, who feel the call to catalyse a shift in the Australian Business Culture towards purpose and impact.
