Tote Board – SSI: Global Leader Series for Non-Profits (GLS) is the signature conference series for non-profit sector in Singapore. Jointly organised by the Social Service Institute (SSI) and Tote Board, we gather non-profit thought leaders and experts from around the world to offer research-based best practices and knowledge-sharing to conference participants. With conference events over three years on leadership and social capital related-themes, we will explore new ways to address increasingly dynamic challenges faced by the non-profit community today.
The only constant today is change and industries around the world are being disrupted. There is a growing recognition for the need to disrupt the non-profit sector to solve complex societal issues and create impact through radical change of mind-set and behaviour shift.
Remember the viral ice bucket challenge? Jon Duschinsky is the driver of social innovation and one of the team behind the Ice Bucket Challenge that raised over $100m to cure ALS.
Recently voted the world's second most powerful communicator in social innovation, second only to Bill Clinton, Jon Duschinsky will be in Singapore to present keynote address and hold a MasterClass at the conference on inspiring and empowering opportunities to relook at how you can tap on social innovation to power change your organisation. Hence, equipping you and your teams with simple and compelling tools that will help you truly solve problems.
The true democratisation of finance is to leverage the power of crowd to unlock value, empower individuals and enable more people access to new opportunities. New social financing models can potentially provide capital to effectively address social, economic and environmental challenges at the global, national and local levels. While these new approaches will not replace the need for philanthropy or public sector involvement, they can provide models for leveraging existing capital using market-based approaches to have greater impact.
To create game-changing impact, non-profits should consider new social financing models such as tokenization of assets, micro-financing, venture philanthropy as important new sources of funds and resources.
Patrick Teng will deliver insights on financial technologies and machine learning that are bringing wealth and health to the bottom of the pyramid, together with details on SIXCAP's initiatives for pioneering new approaches to social financing that are redefining the world economy.
If you are in the non-profit community or has interest in the sector, join us to harness the power of social innovation and social finance for game-changing impact on 5 June.

Anyone who is in the non-profit community or has interest in the non-profit sector.
Mr Jon Duschinsky
World Leading Social Innovator and Entrepreneur
Mr Jon Duschinsky is one of the world's leading social innovators and entrepreneurs. He believes passionately that today's consumers will only support those brands and companies who stand for something they care about. And companies that ignore this do so at their peril.
"There is a new business reality in our post-digital, watched-and-watcher world: you need to give people something to belong it, own, align with, share and get excited about. You can have the best products in the world, but if people don't care then you are doomed to failure".
Duschinsky has teamed up with some of the best creative minds in the world to create The Conversation Farm, a unique communications agency based in Toronto and London that helps companies move from function to purpose. They make their clients stand for something meaningful and then build movements around them to exponentially increase profitability and impact.
Duschinsky doesn't just advise others on how to achieve profitability through social engagement, he has also founded a range of innovative and exciting start-ups, most recently creating Oreka Solutions, an incubator for new sustainable technologies that can effect transformational change. He is also the co-founder of AgriProtein North America, a groundbreaking technology company that is turning waste into food and helping start a "protein revolution" to feed the extra 2 billion people that will be on this planet by 2050. AgriProtein is in the process of creating the largest farming operation on the planet.
Duschinsky works with Fortune 500 companies, start-ups as well as governments and causes. He was one of the team behind the Ice Bucket Challenge that raised over $100m to cure ALS.
Recently voted the world's second most powerful communicator in social innovation, second only to Bill Clinton, his powerful, game-changing message has received global recognition and the opportunity to share speaking platforms with leaders such as Mikhail Gorbachev, Kofi Annan & Steve Wozniak. Duschinsky is the author of two books, "Philanthropy in a Flat World" (2008) and "(me)volution" (2012). He is working on his third book which has the working title 'How to change the world by talking about it'.
