I’m speaking at an interesting lunchtime seminar being held in Brisbane city this coming Thursday. It’s organized by the Eidos Institute, and it’s aimed at exploring questions such as how the private sector work towards social change, and what new ideas and processes can help us respond more effectively to complex social problems such as homelessness, climate change and institutionalised inequality.
It starts at noon with a half an hour of music from grassroot blues musicians The Wild Turkey Trio, with discussion segment going for an hour from around 12.30. All for just $15 – more details at this link.
The event will be facilitated by Dennis Atkins from The Courier-Mail. The main speaker is Canadian Adam Kahane, an interesting and very experienced person in the filed of social change who – among other things – looks for ways that business, government and civil society can work together to bring about positive change.
I’ve long felt that there are many untapped opportunities for better collaboration between private enterprise and not-for-profit and other parts of civil society. I’ll be interested to hear what Adam Kahane and others present have to say about it.
