“The goal is not to be perfect by the end, the goal is to be better today.” ~ Simon Sinek
It’s that time again! Cove Continuity Advisors is delivering our fourth cohort of the Impact 6 Pack program. Powered by the generous support of the BDC and Vancouver Economic Commission, this is a one of a kind program in Canada. The program was developed over years of delivering specialized Impact training, consulting and communications for companies across Canada and beyond.
The core lesson I have learned about working with companies to create meaningful impact and real change; the process must be fun. It must be filled with laughter, surprise, intrigue and action. Any consultant can eek out some insights and put them on your desk; that is not the energy we need to drive change. We need the path toward change to be an adventure.
“Thank you for all the heart and passion you poured into this program. The live examples, exercises and conversations we had were eye-opening, empowering, challenging and will leave us never the same. There’s no going back after attending something like this. Thank you for being part of changing the world in this way.” Donna Cheung, Wakefield Productions
The Impact 6 Pack program is a six-day workshop series designed to increase your impact business literacy and prepare your company to achieve B Corp certification. Through the B Corp Impact Assessment and Design thinking tools we will reveal how your business can become a new economy company. You’ll learn about disruptive business models, badass entrepreneurs, icebergs in your supply chain, solar powered disco balls, how to turn consumers into citizens and ingenious pirates! Oh, yes, you read that right. Pirates!
The course is designed to move beyond the B Corp certification and get into the heart of your business. Why? Because only businesses with heart are going to transform capitalism, and we need to transform capitalism! Brianna Brown and I facilitate the course, I have over a decade of experience in the impact space (and chased it in the jungles of Central America) and Brianna is a B Impact Assessment ninja, wielding academic knowledge like a sword. The program is fun, changing the world shouldn’t be a bore!
