About this event

Are you prepared to build and fund a strong, world class social purpose entity? As an organisation that embraces CSR, what kind of Social Change Agent are you? Is your supporting Social Purpose Entity (SPE1) achieving the envisioned change for which it is set up or getting in the way of Social Change? We might have the answers!

Working for in the non-profit or corporate sector supporting a social cause, we want to make social change happen and advance the common good. However, we face significant barriers as a Social Change Agent to improve the lives of individuals and communities around us.

Join Paul Shoemaker, to learn how to break barriers to develop Great People, Great Infrastructure and Great Programs to create positive social change. Shoemaker was named one of the:

  • Top 50 Most Influential People in the Nonprofit Sector” by The NonProfit Times in 2011 and 2012;
  • Philanthropist of the Year” by Future in Review in 2013.


Make prudent investment of your organisation’s time, money and human capital to support SPEs wisely. This will in turn accrue value to your company, in terms of branding, employee morale and community engagement.

This Master Class will share best practices on how you can break down barriers to make social change happen. Shoemaker, with his 20 yearsexperience working in the sector as well as on the ground working alongside with SPEs all over the world, will share key success factors to build world class non-profits that lasts for the long term that yields significant social impact.
