Building a Purpose-Driven Economy Bold changes come from bold ideas. Our world is changing at rapid speed, requiring new ideas that have never been done before to ignite and take flight, ultimately making a positive impact on people and the planet.

Impact Talks gives local changemakers in our community 6 minutes to share an idea on the theme, “Building a Purpose-Driven Economy.” Whether it’s an idea, project, or something their business or organization is working on, each speaker will highlight how they envision building a new economy that is driven by purpose over profits.

Similar to Lightning & Ignite talks, Impact Talks are about sharing bold, impact-focused ideas in a short amount of time. Listen in as your fellow changemakers take to the stage to share a new idea or different way of approaching a problem that is disrupting the status quo, challenging systems, breaking down barriers, or making a real impact on changing the world and our economy as we know it -- all in 6 minutes or less.

Take a break and join us over lunch for this inspiring session. Come ready to learn, be challenged, and share your own ideas on what it means to build a new, purpose-driven economy - one that works for everyone!

Have a big, bold idea to change the world? Join us at the event, or submit your application to speak. All ideas and pitches are due September 19th!
