11 Things to Consider Before Collaborating


Social Change Central

Over the last four weeks, Moral Fairground has run a number of sessions called “The Collaborator”, where we have asked the business community to come together to collaborate on a social issue.
While running these sessions and establishing stories for the conference, it became apparent that in business collaboration everyone strives to share resources, support each other’s endeavours, increase market share, learn new approaches and contribute to a much larger impact. But without a true understanding of what is involved in collaborating, collaboration could fall short.
Read the full article on Social Change Central to see what we have learnt.

Meet The Australian Delegation Heading To The Social Enterprise World Forum In Ethiopia


Read Full Article

In a few days we'll be off to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia together with this amazing lot of Australian delegates to attend the Social Enterprise World Forum 2019 Thank you Impact Boom for the write up and looking forward to meeting the rest of the group.


The theme of this year’s Forum is local traditions, fresh perspectives and it’s the first SEWF to be held in a developing economy.

The broad range of practitioners, government representatives, academia, philanthropists and students who make up the Australian delegation are united in their joint aspiration of developing the Australian social enterprise sector and SEWF presents the great opportunity for international exchange and dialogue. Delegates will be forming new connections with global leaders and doers from the sector and will be sharing their learnings from the forum both on social media and at a range of Australian events later this year.
