LEARNING LABS – Session 3: Impact as a Business Model

Session 3: Impact as a Business Model
(Panel Discussion x 3 Panellists)

This session will be a discussion on the concept of “impact as a business model” for associations to unlock new opportunities of growth and value sharing. We will explore how associations can develop business models that are designed specifically to create positive societal impact beyond the basic operational delivery of services and products. When an organisation intentionally puts impact at the core of its business model, the focus is shifted from being activity-driven to being driven by the specific positive outcomes that are created for all their stakeholders. This elevates the organisation in the value chain and can unlock a plethora of new opportunities.

We will discuss this with panelists coming from the social enterprise world and associations who have successfully made this transition.
