We have the creative power to make this world more sustainable and just. It is this creativity which is the hallmark of the human experience. Creativity that is best nurtured when we come together to explore new ways of doing and being. The Social Venture Institute is just this kind of coming together. Each September, social purpose business leaders from all over North America gather at the renowned Hollyhock Retreat Centre on Cortes Island in British Columbia, Canada.
This is a tremendously inspirational gathering of a tribe of thinkers and leaders working to turn business into an instrument of change. This will be my third year attending, and if you’re a social purpose business leader looking to build community to support your work, there is no more important event for you to commit to and attend. This program is for CEOs and leaders of established small businesses and nonprofit enterprises who are interested in fine tuning business strategies, learning best practices and building long lasting relationships with business peers and mentors. Consider attending. See you there.
