It’s Laura here with some exciting news!
2019 is going to be a great year!
I am about to embark on a 9 month global learning tour to learn about the role that business can play to improve society and I want you to join me!!
My interest in using business as a force for good started at a young age where I bossed my younger brother around pretending we ran a business that saved stray animals.
Until recently, I worked at one of Australia’s largest financial institutions and saw glimpses of the power of business to improve society and the environment.
This sparked a question… ‘What would happen if Government unlocked businesses to drive positive social change and what if businesses completely embraced it?’
So I decided that the only way I would get some answers would be to travel and meet people, see new contexts and learn new ways to bring profit and purpose together.

- To understand how businesses (corporates and startups) in different countries can add value to society through their core business strategy.
- To learn about the relationship between Government, society and business to drive entrepreneurship and economic growth.
- To explore the role of social activism to drive change.
