If we are truly to see social and economic change happening in the world, we have to embrace the wealth of possibilities in the counter-intuitive partnership between for-profit and not-for-profit. Kerryn heads the Network for Social Entrepreneurs at the Gordon Institute of Business Science, which focuses on achieving both social and economic change through social enterprise. She has worked in the social sector since 2001 with numerous UK charities, and began her career as a journalist for business news channel Summit TV. She holds a Masters in Development Studies.
Together with journalist Gus Silber, she co-authored the ‘The Disruptors,’ the book that inspired the theme for this event. Kerryn teaches social enterprise at GIBS and writes regularly on the topic.
