Business as a Vehicle for Impact
Gill bredl will be talking about her journey and how the direction of her life changed after hearing about the plight of a starving child.

The world is being rocked. We stare into the eye of a Force-5 cyclone who’s waves are sweeping fragile businesses from the register of existence. Those that remain must recognise and latch on to one of 5 global trends that will define a new era of purpose and prosperity. Like the Digital startups who were created from the ashes of the last economic crash, research is showing people are flocking to enterprises that truly give a face to what matters to the new generation.
In this talk Gaelene Adams Wood from Business of Brand NZ will share one of these future trendlines – the move from Charity to Charitable. Charity to Charitable talks about the shift businesses must make from token giving to embedding social purpose into every facet of their operation while promoting a movement, and drawing customers who care along to share the journey together. Learn about the purpose trend, learn about the process and connect with this movement and where it can take your business
