Purpose 2018 Announces Stellar Lineup to Help You Forget the World’s Woes
Tuesday, 30th January 2018 at 8:08 am

If North Korea, US politics and global warming has got you feeling down on the state of the world. Or if you’ve been working in the not-for-profit space for so long that you need a refresh on your “why”, the lineup for Purpose may be just the ticket to a better state of mind.

Purpose is a two-day forum for purpose driven people and purpose-led businesses organised annually since 2015. In its first year, Purpose was a runaway success and is a steadily growing community of like-minded businesses. Now in its third year, Purpose’s set of offerings cater to those that are rewriting the rules of 21st century business.

The conference has announced the full speaker lineup for the event on 27 and 28 February 2018. The program includes Paul Hawken, a US environmentalist whose book has been described by Bill Clinton as one of the most important in the world today, with a keynote presentation about how to reverse global warming. It also features Rachel Botsman – trust expert and the author of Who Can We Trust? – looking at trust in the age of rapidly transforming institutions and technology.

For those concerned about the future of artificial intelligence, ethics and how we can “design technology that doesn’t destroy our humanity”, Dr Matthew Beard, moral philosopher and fellow at The Ethics Centre, will be covering the topic in-depth. Stephanie Draper, chief change officer at the Forum for the Future in the UK, will discuss the art of change at the system level.

The two-day program features keynotes, hands-on workshops, social events and creative sessions drawing on the expertise of professionals from Australia, the United States and Europe leading the charge towards a transformed economy, more meaningful work and a better world.

Journalist comediennes Hannah and Eliza Reilly, representatives from Google, The Guardian, Atlassian, Westpac, Adobe, ABC, IKEA, Code Like a Girl, Australian Ethical Super, Powershop and Marque Lawyers will also be featured in sessions discussing how companies are examining their social and environmental impact, and exploring how to become more responsible and mission-driven.
