What is a social enterprise and how can we use that in our own innovation journey?
I very much enjoyed this chat to Tom Dawkins. There’s no doubt a lot of opportunities lay in the social space for businesses…
Our consciousness has been awaken, even more with Covid… businesses that focus on the social need and are driven to make our world better, will stand out for the right reasons.

They also power impact accelerators and entrepreneur education programs for partners including Optus, ING, the United Nations Development Program and the City of Sydney.
Tom was previously the founder of youth non-profit Vibewire, first Digital Communications Director for Ashoka in Washington DC and the founding Director of the Australian Changemakers Festival.
Tom has created dance parties and film festivals, conferences and co-working spaces, fundraising platforms and Burning Man theme camps. He has spoken at numerous global events including SXSW, SOCAP, Purpose, Progress and The Social Enterprise World Forum and has worked with nonprofits, social enterprises and major corporates to better refine their purpose, communicate their story and build their community.
