Navigating Social Finance

If you’re a social enterprise, you might think you have two options for revenue streams: sell a service or sell a product. And yet, there are a lot more options than you think! The types of funding available to impact-driven businesses are both diverse and innovative. From impact investing to social impact bonds, Aunnie Patton Power will provide a bird’s eye view of the emerging field that is global social finance. She will help you to consider which revenue streams and forms of finance you might consider, given your mission and your financial goals. There will be plenty of time for questions – this is your chance to put on your capital raising hat and think differently about how you fund the growth of your organisation.

How to Shake Up Philanthropic Giving

Philanthropic foundations can be a catalyst for change and support bold and high-risk endeavours, yet often resources remain highly concentrated in certain sectors and coordination between organisations is limited. Join us to discuss the philanthropic sector’s urgent need to reinvent itself in order to achieve maximum impact and explore promising new approaches.

Mabel Madness

Legendary performer, Mabel Mercer, who influenced the likes of Frank Sinatra, Tony Bennett and Billie Holiday, confronts the events that have led her to personal and professional crossroads. From a white British mother who refused to acknowledge her black daughter to becoming an international singing star to vocal mishaps that ultimately led to her signature Story Song style, Mabel reveals all as she prepares to take her final bow.

Building Bridges across the Generational Divide

We know that inter-generational relationships lead to increased happiness and success, while age segregation causes loneliness and isolation. Why, then, do we continue to ‘chronolise’ modern society? Join us for a conversation with Marc Freedman, CEO of Encore.org and author of ‘How to Live Forever’, to explore how we fell into the trap of age segregation and learn how we can bring generations together for mutual benefit.
