Fair News Monthly Updates November 2019 Banner

Welcome to November.

I would like to personally congratulate all the enterprises that entered the Ethical Enterprise Award and the Early Pitch Competition, whilst not everyone walked away with the first or second prize, I would like to take a moment to acknowledge the incredible work that you are all doing and the effort it takes to be a business with impact. I think it is easy to forget that business driven by a social mission has the added weight of having to always demonstrate what their impact is. I would also like to thank all the presenters and speakers at this year Ethical Enterprise Conference for sharing their knowledge and insights with us.

Enjoy the rest of the newsletter.

It's a wrap up - Ethical Enterprise Conference 2019

Another year of the Ethical Enterprise Conference has officially come to an end, and while we’re still wrapping up at the backend of this whirlwind, we want to take a moment to share with you some of the amazing messages, inspiring thoughts and key takeaways from this years ‘Collaboration for Change’ Conference.

Planning an event a year out into the future, you’re not always going to be able to predict whether your topic is still the hot pound cake that everyone wants by the time it’s ready to come out of the oven or whether everyone will have moved onto something like… Macaroons. Oh, no, now it would be something along the lines of a refined sugar free, sustainably sourced and packed with medicinal mushrooms slice… Thankfully ‘collaboration’ is a near evergreen, ever useful topic in the realm of Ethical Living!

In coming together to learn from leaders in collaboration, there was of course a wonderful opportunity to network – from b corp to social enterprise to someone in corporate who just wants to gain insight into how to be more ethical or collaborate with ethical motivations. Needless to say, in such a conference, there is always a golden nugget to walk away with, perhaps a new client, customer, business partner or friend! Read full article of key learning.

Reflections – Social Enterprise World Forum 2019

SWEF2019 Australian Delegation

Moral Fairground Blog

People keep on asking me what my key learnings were from the Social Enterprise World Forum in Addis Ababa (Ethiopia). So I thought I would take this opportunity to share with you what I got from attending the forum.

The forum was more than just a conference. For me, it was an amazing immersive cultural experience I got to meet, converse, dine and dance with people from all round the world, Despite our cultural differences, our borders and our distances, I felt at home. Our goal was the same and that goal connected all of us. Read the full article on Moral Fairground Blog.
