A challenging panel discussion with international, national and local perspectives on who should be driving the delivery and measurement of social value in 21st Century organisations and why.

Not frightened to challenge the status quo panellists will be calling for a change in how organisations value their worth.

Should organisations shift their preference for valuing their worth financially to valuing their social impact as a priority? If so, who is responsible for driving the change? The CEO? Chief Financial Officer? The Board? Should it be a top-down change or a bottom-up push from the people doing the social impact measurement?

Followed by networking and refreshments, this is a must-attend key event for anyone interested in accounting for social value, particularly high-level decision-makers in Western Australian not-for-profit, for-profit and government organisations.
