Hub Talks: Impact

This month, Hub Australia is once again hosting Hub Talks sessions in Melbourne and Sydney.

Each session will be focusing on the theme of impact, how it works, and how to successfully incorporate it in businesses.

Across Melbourne and Sydney, members will be sharing their stories and learnings from running purpose-driven businesses or incorporating positive impact into their current business model.

All events are free to attend for members and non-members, and we welcome everyone to come along and learn something about merging purpose and business successfully through one of our sessions.


Hub Hyde Park (Sydney) | 27th August

Hub Hyde Park is running an in-depth panel event, moderated by John Sturt-Addicott from Spark Strategy.

Panelists will include Melanie Mokken from the Rainforest Alliance, Laurence Morris from Nando’s, Karen Iles from Violet Co and Rhianne Ralph from well-known not-for-profit Make-a-Wish.

Together they will discuss the merits and challenges they’ve found through operating not-for-profits, incorporating purpose into for-profit businesses, and new ways businesses can think about their impact and incorporate it into their everyday operations.

Keep Victoria Beautiful is a not-for-profit centred on preserving Victoria’s natural beauty and landmarks, and future-proofing our state’s stunning wildlife and environment.

Good on You is a successful application and social movement starter that allows people to rate and find out the environmental and social impact of the companies producing their clothes and fashion accessories.
