What is a 501©3? What is a non-profit? Thinking about starting a social enterprise, but don’t know what that means? Joel Griffith will lead us through a workshop to answer these questions and more! Joel has spent the last 20 years helping start, run and consult with a bunch of non-profits, social enterprises and businesses. He has a Master's Degree in Intercultural Studies/International Development so has the benefit of being both a student and long-time practitioner in this space. He loves start up and creating systems to help scale an idea - especially when they tackle a justice or social issue.
With 15 years of diverse non-profit experience, and 8 of those years in Executive Team positions, Joel has a track record of turning around multiple organizations through leadership development, marketing, restructuring or developing new systems and operations, and empowering staff to carry forward new paradigms. In 2014, he launched a marketing and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) consulting agency, Loudspeaker Creative, bringing together his passion for the twin components of start up and marketing: Story + Data.
Joel used to have spare time to skateboard and fly fish but now mostly hangs out with his wife and 4 sons. Right now life is crazy and busy...but soon he will skateboarding and fishing with them!
