You are invited to the world’s largest free online event for social entrepreneurs, changemakers, do-gooders, social innovators and community leaders – all coming together to help you start good in 2018.
Taking place between the 19-31 March, the #StartingGood Virtual Summit brings together over 30 of the world’s leading social innovators and doers for over 30 hours of practical and actionable content – for FREE.
That’s right, anyone from anywhere can access the #StartingGood Virtual Summit, all you need is access to the internet.
Whether you are in the early stages of a new idea looking to learn how to get started or are a changemaking veteran looking to deepen your impact with advice from like-minded peers, the #StartingGood Virtual Summit gives you access to the skills and ideas you need to create sustainable change.
You will have the rare opportunity to learn from the personal experiences of top social innovators from around the world who have been there before and walk away with practical skills to develop social change in your own community.
‘We want to help attendees to see that people who are shown as heroes in the social innovation space are just everyday people like them – with doubts, fear, who also lack confidence and make mistakes. We want people to walk away, knowing that they too have the power to create change and do good and that there is never a better time to bring your vision to life – so if you have an idea to create change, the time to act is now,’ remarked CEO of StartSomeGood, Tom Dawkins.
Now in its second year, the #StartingGood Virtual Summit offers you insights into various topics including how to build a board, the sales mindset for social enterprises, digital storytelling, blockchain for good and conscious content marketing, as well as access to interviews from experienced changemakers who have been there before.
Some of the inspiring speakers you’ll hear from at this year’s summit include:
- 2006 Noble Peace Prize winner and pioneer of microfinance, Muhammad Yunus
- CEO of the Foundation for Young Australians, Jan Owen AM who will share her insights into the future of work for young people
- Founder of Hatched and expert in embedding purpose into businesses, Timothy O’Brien
- CEO of Emergent, Holly Ransom will present on the macro trends shaping the future.
We at StartSomeGood believe that with the right tools and support anyone can be a changemaker, but also recognize that people often face barriers to accessing the support they need to get started.
Furthermore, the price and location of traditional summits and conferences often exclude people from diverse backgrounds, geographical locations, and young people.
In this day in age with our world and our people facing serious issues, including climate change, poverty and environmental degradation, we can’t afford to have anyone sitting on the sidelines, which is why we are running a free to access virtual summit.
If you are someone who wants to make the world a better place or want to step back and further develop the impact you are creating, this summit is for you.
Join us for two weeks of diving deep, self-reflection, skill development and connecting with like-minded people from all around the world.
