Sustainable, Ethical, Environmentally Friendly. Many use these as buzz words that are thrown about like used paper in the wrong bin! What if you want to make a real impact and not just pay lip service to these words? Taking it further than just corporate social responsibility and create real social impact and purpose. What does it take and how can we make sure its meaningful? Karen Porter is a strategic communications specialist who helps to deliver communication strategies with a positive social impact. But this doesn’t mean just saying how many paper cups you’ve recycled, this is about being true to your brand, actively making a difference and supporting what is important to you and your business! In this episode we uncover; - How do you develop a social purpose (I foolishly call this Corporate Social Responsibility which isn’t exactly correct)? - Being seen as credible - Getting internal buy-in - The pitfalls that companies usually fall foul to We also cover becoming a certified B Corporation (more about this in the episode). If you are interested in becoming a certified B Corporation, it’s a wise move to take the B Impact Assessment which will show you how far off you are, here's the link: https://bimpactassessment.net/ (link is in the show notes). With all this kindness floating around in need to know first off - Karen, what is your most memorable selfless act? Watch the episode video: https://youtu.be/gtFzlQSFiLg Top Tip If you are going to talk the talk, then you need to walk the walk. Taking the B Impact Assessment and subsequently striving to become B Corp Certified show you are doing exactly that and you are not just typing words onto recycled paper. Favourite Quote If you want buy-in from your team, they all need to contribute to how (as an organisation) you are going to show up in the world and you are going to do good. And Finally, the Most Important Takeaway from this Tpisode Even if you are not looking to become B Corp Certified there are multiple other ways to establish you credentials within your own industry’s, through accreditations and partnerships. Just make sure that these are true to your brand and meaningful to what you believe in. Music Featured on this Podcast: Sleepy in the Garden Lobo Loco www.musikbrause.de Creative Commons License

Eden-Monaro By-Election on Independence Day @Dawn | Karen Porter | Independent Candidate


The Eden-Monaro By-Election will be held on July 4th.  For those who follow Australian politics, this Federal seat is currently held by the Labor Member of the House of Representatives, Mike Kelly, who resigned on April 30th, 2020 due to ill health. The margin of the Federal seat is .9% to Labor.  Eden-Monaro is known as a "bellwether seat", which means whichever Party wins the seat, determines the Government of the day. It has been that way from 1972 until 2016. But that didn't happy in 2016 when it swung to Labor but Labor didn't win Government.  It's often the two major parties in Australia - Labor and Liberals - who put up candidates to run in elections. This time it would be no different. However, in recent years, Australia has seen the emergence of Independent candidates running in elections. And as more and more people become cynical about the current system, they are turning away from the major parties and placing their vote on others who were more accessible and representative.  Can an independent like Karen Porter make a difference in this seat? July 4th is American Independence Day.  TIMESTAMPS  0:00 Introduction to Karen Porter  4:14 Campaigning against the big machinery  5:43 Eden-Monaro Electorate  8:42 Karen's unique selling points  10:04 Stories that are not heard by the major parties  11:46 How Karen will resonate with the different communities and electorates 12:53 Eden-Monaro roads  14:54 What inspired you to run as an independent?  17:22 How Karen is campaigning  18:08 The size of the Eden-Monaro electorate  21:08 What are Karen's chances?  22:04 Supporters and mentors  _____________________________________________________________  CONNECT WITH US!  DAWN is always eager to learn and share stories from different perspectives.
