25th Anniversary TBLI CONFERENCE-Celebrating with Friends

For those of you who weren’t able to attend the 25th Anniversary of TBLI CONFERENCE, May 29-30, 2014, here is a film capturing some of the highlights. The full version of the plenary presentations will be available on our website, shortly.

It was a spectacular event. Everyone contributed to the success of TBLI CONFERENCE. It is so inspiring to bring together the ESG & Impact Investing thought leaders and great humanitarians and experience the passion and generosity of everyone. We were overwhelmed by the number of people who came up and asked how they could help TBLI CONFERENCE.

I particularly want to thank our team, Iris, Stephanie, Stephen, Danielle, Libby, and Niels. In addition, all the staff of Credit Suisse, the volunteers, the TBLI Ambassadors, attendees, speakers, moderators and sponsors. You all made TBLI a great success and a joy. Thank you.

Hope you can join us at the other events this year. 

TBLI CONFERENCE™ Series 2014-Building A Global Community Of ESG And Impact Investors

NORDIC (10-11 Sept) – EUROPE (28-29 Oct) – @HULT Boston (17 Nov)

We received great testimonials like this one.

The TBLI CONFERENCE USA 2014 in New York City was inspiring, empowering, and brought people from many sectors together to discuss important sustainability issues and solutions that can only transpire through “collective impact”. Furthermore, discussions focused on developing solutions to emerging ESG challenges. As opposed to other sustainability conferences, TBLI CONFERENCE attendees interacted and engaged at all levels, from CEOs to students and volunteers – everyone was important and included in the discussion.The workshops instigated thought provoking ideas and helped cultivate new connections bringing people with different skill sets together to work on projects. These workshops were not just lectures where CEO’s talked at you but they  were excited to share progress with everyone and welcomed constructive criticism, partnerships, and suggestions as discussions were free flowing as a general curiosity and openness pervaded the atmosphere. The TBLI Conference truly put the “social engagement” in triple bottom line.

I saw this inspiring video about the down side of social media and smartphones.  Wonderful, inspiring, and very clear. Look up, reach out, connect and interact with real people face to face. That is how we grow and create a community.

Creating 200 million social enterprises

Inspiration

Last week, I was honoured and inspired to meet Ernesto Sirolli. Ernesto is a social entrepreneur and founder of the Sirolli Insititute, who developed the concept  of “Enterprise Facilitation”. For 27 years, Ernesto has been creating enterprises in emerging markets focussing on a few simple concepts:

  • Shut up and listen
  • Only respond to people who want to be helped
  • Don’t motivate local entrepreneur. Facilitate to help them achieve their dreams
  • Respect the wishes of the local entrepreneur.
  • Servant of local people who have a dream to be better person
  • Local person must have own passion
  • Find knowledge to achieve dream of entrepreneur
  • Direct support using extremely low cost and basic infrastructure

His results are quite phenomenal. He has been able to achieve 200 enterprises for each enterprise facilitator. Imagine if you could create 1.000, 10.000, 100.000 or 1 million enterprise facilitators. Ernesto kindly agreed to speak at an upcoming TBLI Conference .
