PROGRAMME

19 October 2018
8:00am - 5:30pm

We’ve designed the programme with social entrepreneurs in mind.

 
 
 

But there will also be plenty of content for those who provide support to social entrepreneurs. Business leaders and sustainability managers can join in the conversation on social procurement, intermediaries will gather to push the boundaries of capability building in the regions, policy makers will have a chance to hear from social entrepreneurs themselves what sort of policy changes will really enable them, investors will leave with a better understanding of the opportunity impact investing represents, etc.

Whilst the morning plenary will be an opportunity to look at the big picture, exploring how far we have travelled as a sector in the last 12 months and envisioning the year ahead,

the breakout sessions will be practical, participative and interactive and will cover a range of topics for learning, debate and co-creation.

There will be 14 sessions on offer throughout the day.

Everyone who attends can expect to be energised from new connections, fresh ideas, and clarity whether they’re growing a social enterprise, building a community, supporting their whānau or articulating  their impact.
