Losing Control With Funding and Social Finance – It’s SIMPL!, May 2nd
Date(s) - 02/05/2019
9:30 am - 4:30 pm
This event on 2nd May will generate new knowledge and learning about how funders (investors, grant makers, commissioners, philanthropists) can work together, and with potential providers, to create a collaborative-by-design system of finance.
To do this we need to ‘lose control’ and reset our understanding of how we achieve social and environmental good together. With that in mind we will be starting with ‘little heresies’; provocative statements that will engage us at both an emotional and intellectual level. These discussions will help us step outside the current pattern of thought and into new ways of thinking.
We will then bring this together in the afternoon to focus on taking the action we feel will be most significant.
As a taster of the types of statements we might discuss:
- Accountability for delivering results does not exist in complex environments!
- Managing performance by outcomes perpetuates harm!
- Impact measurement is a waste of time!
