Would you like to have a better understanding of how organisations deliver social impact? Do you want to know what is it that you need to manage and how to face the challenges and opportunities to deliver impact? Anton Simanowitz, author of the book “The Business of Doing Good” and director of Social Performance Solutions, will lead a webinar that will look into the heart of the impact system and give a twist to its management. Aimed at anybody working in an organisation with a social purpose, from board members to managers, frontline staff or impact people in general, the goal of this webinar is to have a better understanding of the social impact process.
Join us for this new webinar organised by the Portugal Impact Group and Stone Soup Consulting, a free and open training that will bridge the gap between good intentions and practice.
“Many times I’ve asked myself why is it that organisations so committed to deliver good in the world, often fail to take opportunities to do better, and sometimes actually hurt the people that they are trying to reach. This webinar is about the details of how to build good organisations and not just the products. It will focus on how not to make assumptions about our clients and understand what they need. On how to build the right product and services to make small tweaks that really improve things”, Anton Simanowitz.
