Welcome to Episode 34 of Good Will Hunters!
THIS EPISODE IS SPONSORED BY THE INTREPID GROUP, THE TOUR COMPANY PROVIDING SUSTAINABLE, EXPERIENCE RICH TRAVEL.
You may recall about a month ago I had Rosemary Addis on the show. Rosemary is the Founder and Chair of Impact Investing Australia, and the Australian representative on the Social Impact Investment Taskforce, among dozens of other accolades. In short, Rosemary is one of the most widely respected experts on impact investment in Australia.
The episode we aired a month ago was so well received, that Rosemary and I decided to do a ‘Quarterly Impact Investment Masterclass’. Working in the development sector, the number one question I’ve been asked over the last 12 months is ‘What is impact investment and how can I get involved?’. These episodes will aim to answer that question.
Each quarter, Rosemary and I will discuss recent trends, share examples of where impact investment is transforming organisations and causes, discuss what you can to get involved, and provide a market wrap-up of the most important things for YOU to know from the last three months.
In this episode, we’re talking about what can make it easier to participate in impact investment, we’re putting a spotlight on the role for banks given the recent Royal Commission and we’re talking about solutions for people with disabilities, plus a whole lot more.
