Spark The Change MEL 2019

Friday 13 September 2019

Engaging people in workplaces and society…

…by exploring the relationship between meaning, purpose and profit.

RMIT University, Storey Hall | Melbourne, Australia

Figures show that more than 80% of people are disengaged with the work that they do. How can we address that issue and help people to be more engaged, and find purpose in work and also in their communities? The speakers at Spark the Change can show you how to connect purpose to work, as well as profit

Spark the Change is designed to inspire and engage people & organisations who want to change themselves and improve the world, by building stronger businesses, happier workplaces and resilient communities that are prepared for the future.

We are part of a global movement that aims to inspire change and rethink the future of work and society. Leaders, entrepreneurs, authors, academics, designers, architects, engineers, creators meet at Spark the Change.

Our Themes

Organisation — Improve your workplace

Hear how leaders have used the ‘why’ to create and evolve their organisations. Learn how purpose and meaning in organisations is balanced with long term commercial sustainability and goals.
