BUILD BACK BETTER
“A time of crisis is not just a time of anxiety and worry. It gives a chance, an opportunity, to choose well or to choose badly.” Desmond Tutu
The world has been upended. The Coronavirus pandemic has impacted people, communities and businesses in ways we could have never previously imagined, exposing fault lines in our economy and the very foundations of our society. We now have an opportunity to ‘choose well’, to reimagine how we live, work and play, to address our weaknesses, to tackle inequality, to embed sustainability and build back better.
I work with businesses, organisations and communities to help them build back better. Based on a decade of global research into changemaking and sustainability, I have developed a 6-stage changemaking process to help businesses navigate a fast-changing world and build for the future. Using insights, research and case studies from world-leading changemakers, I take you deep into the world of changemaking, to demonstrate how we as businesses, communities and individuals can rebuild a society, that rather than plaster over our fissures, seeks from the outset to create for people, planet and the future.
From the ‘pandemic pivot’, to ‘climate changemaking’, I use my unique impact intelligence to work with you to ensure that you Build Back Better and become a Changemaker company.
“The secret of change is to focus all of your energy not on fighting the old but on building the new.” Socrates
The Covid-19 crisis has exposed susceptibilities within businesses, systems, supply chains, communities, our economy and our environment. By learning how to build back better, we can create resilient, sustainable businesses and organisations, able to withstand any shocks the future may bring.
Covid-19 has demonstrated the interconnectedness of our natural, social and economic systems, and has given us a wake-up call showing unequivocally what results from short-term thinking and not creating for people and planet. Reality has bitten back hard and for businesses, it’s clear that building back better is about much more than corporate social responsibility or tokenistic promises. It is about aligning our businesses, our activities, our values and our economy with the natural and social systems on which they depend.
Yes, we live in extraordinary times and extraordinary times need extraordinary solutions. To join me on a journey for survival, you can book your Changemaker sessions here.
