It’s time to come together and talk about how we can ‘Be the ReGeneration’ that rebuilds our economy, repairs our society, restores our people and finds ways to #BuildBackBetter.
It’s no secret that we are going to need ingenious solutions with the increased social and economic stress our nation is under. It’s going to be essential for business, civil society and government to work together to rebuild an inclusive and prosperous nation. COVID-19 is certainly redefining purposeful business and with this in mind, it’s fair to say that this year’s In Good Company Conference is going to be an absolute must-attend, virtual event.
COVID-19 and the subsequent economic and social lockdown have had an obvious negative impact on the economy. And though some sectors and individuals are better off than others, the crisis will have unavoidable knock-on effects that will impact many – especially the most vulnerable in our nation. The coming together of South Africans is therefore going to be essential, where together as a business community and civil society we face this season with courage and ingenuity.
That’s why we are going to look at how to ‘build back better’, starting with our own resilience and moving on to rebuilding our social narrative, regenerating our economy and ultimately working towards creating a new trajectory for our nation.
100% of ticket sales will be donated to the Gap Fund, a COVID-19 crisis fund established by the Mergon Group. The fund assists NPOs who are on the frontlines, supporting our country’s most vulnerable people. So, by joining the conference, you are helping NPOs and being part of the solution! More on the Gap Fund.
This year’s conference will be a virtual and interactive experience which has been carefully crafted to challenge views, bring new insights on how to engage in social development, and showcase remarkable people whose innovative social change practices give replicable examples for others to follow in effective nation building.It’s going to be a wonderful time of sharing and learning. We’ll be inspired by stories that bring substantiated hope and remind us that we have the power to craft our Nation’s narrative and choose to use COVID-19 as an inflexion point in building a more resilient nation.
