Description

DreamMakers: Innovating for the Greater Good profiles stories of businesses, cross-sector initiatives and movements and whole communities that are collaborating to create a flourishing world. They all share attitudes and beliefs that transcend: who they are, where they live, or their individual circumstances.

The book provides a new definition of success, shares the stories of a number of businesses and communities and examines how the people that lead these successful organizations have made a significant difference. Stories come from people based in very different types of industries and sectors, such as Waka Waka, a company that is helping to address 'energy poverty' for millions of families across the globe, Menlo Innovations, a socially innovative technology company which embeds 'Joy' as a business proposition, and the hugely successful cross-sector global movement, B Corporation.These people share how they are innovating for the greater good and making their personal hopes and dreams come true. They share their results and what they have learned. Their compelling stories are instructive as well as inspirational. They share the defining moments in their lives that shaped the insights, perspectives and the decisions that lead them on their journey. They go into detail about the actions they are taking to help transform their organizations, communities to enable them to innovate for the greater good. They show us that by taking personal responsibility to change our lives, businesses and our communities, we contribute to changing our world.
