For the month of July, we have three sessions of Green Drinks! Kicking off this month, we have with us Tania Ellis, prize-winning author of The New Pioneers, a book looking at sustainability through social innovation and social entrepreneurship.
The new business revolution is being driven both top-down from some of the world’s largest companies – and bottom-up from entrepreneurial activists and social change makers. With an accelerating convergence between what first-mover corporations are already doing, what mainstream companies are striving to do and what social entrepreneurs are showcasing in their field, there is a growing potential for fruitful ‘cross-fertilization’ through partnerships and upscaling of solutions. Who are already engaged in these kinds of “shared value partnerships”, what are the challenges & benefits?
In this session, she shares some of her findings and reflections on the state of shared value partnerships, as it looks right now, before having an open dialogue with the audience about their thoughts, personal experiences, and cases of shared value partnerships that they know of.
Date: 5 July (Thursday) 2012
Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm (talk will be followed by Q&A, then mingling)
Venue: The Hub, 113 Somerset Road
Do join us! We hope to see you there!
