PostSubject: Business leadership and the social sector   Mon Oct 12, 2009 1:58 pm

I realise the invite is to alumni, but I don't think they will mind having enthusiastic non-alumnis in the crowd. Might be a good forum to get some ideas flowing.


Business leadership and the social sector

Dear alumni

The UNSW Australian School of Business Sydney Alumni Branch Committee is pleased to invite you to an exclusive event supported by Ernst & Young with guest speaker Jon Huggett, a global advisor to CEOs of both for-profit and not-for-profit businesses.

Jon Huggett, who is in Australia as a guest of the Centre for Social Impact at UNSW, will speak about the challenges not-for-profit entities face in the current uncertain economic environment. He will discuss corporate philanthropy and corporate responsibility initiatives drawing on his knowledge of research in the US on the social sector and his experience in venture philanthropy.

This is an exciting opportunity to network and enjoy drinks and canapés with alumni and business leaders from both the for-profit and not-for-profit sectors.

Date: Wednesday, 21st October 2009

Time: 6pm – 8:30pm

Venue: Ernst & Young Centre, Level 33, 680 George Street, Sydney

Alumni & Students: $25 (including GST) per person
Guests: $30 (including GST) per person


Proceeds from this event go towards the Australian School of Business Scholarships Appeal Fund which gives talented disadvantaged students a top class education.

The Centre for Social Impact is a unique partnership between Business Schools of the University of New South Wales, the University of Melbourne, Swinburne University of Technology and the University of Western Australia. CSI has a profoundly important mission: to educate tomorrow’s social entrepreneurs and strengthen today’s social enterprises.

Thanks for posting this event! I have located the registration details.

Our team will also be sending some members to the "Beyond Idealism: Skills to Change the World" workshop held at Sydney University this Thursday:

Beyond Idealism: Skills to Change the World - NEXT THURSDAY EVENING
Want to learn from international experts on how to use your skills to make a real difference in the world? Want to socialise and network with like-minded people from across Sydney? If so, this event is for you.

When: Thursday 15th October, 5:45pm for 6-8pm
Where: Foyer Lounge (L19), Law School

This event has been organised by the Young Leaders Network, the Centre for Social Impact and 180 Degrees. It focuses on how to effectively use your skills to have a positive impact on university communities and broader society. It delves into the what and how of social entrepreneurship, whether it be running a not-for-profit organisation, overcoming organisational problems, or solving pressing societal challenges. It brings together a panel of world-renowned leaders including Jon Huggett and Cheryl Kernot.

However I agree we should also send students to the UNSW Australian School of Business event as it is a fantastic networking opportunity. I will speak to Lisa and Andrew about sponsorship for the registration fee ($30/student).
