Stephen Huddart Forum March 26-29: Final seats available.

While the value of innovation in business, science, and technology is widely championed and funded, considerably less attention is paid to applying innovation tools to the social systems that cost government more than $300 billion a year. Stephen Huddart –  The Philanthropist.

In partnership with Perpetual and Philanthropy Australia we are delighted to welcome Stephen Huddart (President and CEO of The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation, Montreal) touring Australia in March, including dates in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney.

Stephen is President and Chief Executive Officer of The J. W. McConnell Family Foundation, a private foundation based in Montreal. He’s a passionate advocate for social innovation and together with The J.W. McConnell Family Foundation are leading the way with building healthy communities, reconciliation between Indigenous and non-indigenous peoples. The Foundation believes that the economy and social systems should advance the wellbeing of all people, and in which the natural environment is stewarded for future generations.

This outstanding philanthropic speaker will discuss his success as well as lessons learned in philanthropy over time. A global leader in Philanthropy, The J. W. McConnell Family Foundation is a world-leader in designing and catalysing a social innovation ecosystem that is stimulating inclusive growth both in Canada and discussion worldwide. Its focus is to enhance Canada’s ability to address complex social, environmental and economic challenges by developing, testing and applying innovative approaches and solutions.

Join us at this thought leadership forum as we hear from Stephen’s through this forum roadshow. A panel discussion with social innovation leaders from Australia will follow, along with an opportunity for you to contribute to the discussion.
