SOCIAL INNOVATION SUMMIT 2019
Taking the future into our hands

A full day event focused on transforming organisational culture into engaged, purpose-driven communities.


what is the SOCIAL INNOVATION SUMMIT?

 The Social Innovation Summit is an invitation to become part of one of Australia’s fastest growing impact-communities.  

We believe individuals have the power to transform not only their own personal culture, but the culture of their organisation, their community and that of our world. The Summit is designed to provide the frameworks for approaching such transformations, to bring about vibrant and engaged communities with strong impact-cultures; no matter which sector, technology, design or field of work you are in. 

This full day, fully catered event invites over 25 expert speakers to provide practical knowledge and guidance on topics ranging from Climate Action to Mobilising Human Capital, Capital Raising, Cyber Security, Digital Wellness, Digital Inclusion and lots more. 

The day will be complimented by interactive workshops and networking opportunities. 

Join the conversation.
