Wellington Hot Tub event


SOCIAL ENTERPRISE delivers community good using funds generated from trading, rather than from grants and donations.

Hosted by Grant Thornton, a panel of experienced social entrepreneurs will discuss the role and benefits of social enterprise, and how it is reshaping business today.

  • Alfred Ngaro is a politician and the first Cook Islander elected to Parliament in New Zealand. He has received a Sir Peter Blake Emerging Leader Award for his work on the Tamaki Transformation Project as a member of Inspiring Communities.
  • Dr Richard Norman teaches Human Resource Management and Training and Development at Victoria. He is researching the impact of digital change in the Wellington Region, and initiated an annual fund for emerging social enterprises.
  • Bice Awan was the founding chief executive of Skylight, a charitable trust which began in 1998. It is based around social enterprise, and focuses on the impact of change, loss and grief on children, young people and their families.
