Sophie is on a mission to accelerate the transition to a sustainable world. A world that is purpose driven, inclusive, regenerative and circular. She has developed some ground-breaking new models and methods to help people and companies to create transformative change for a better world.
She identified an important need for education and support among conscious business leaders. Many business leaders want to leave a positive impact, but they do not know how or where to start. She experienced herself it can be a lonely journey to pioneer the change. Changemakers need each other to maximize and accelerate their positive impact.
That’s why she organized the World’s 1st Global Free Online `Doing Business & Doing Good` Summit. She interviewed 25+ sustainable leaders with the purpose to inspire, empower and equip business professionals to be a force for good and leave a positive impact. She decided to start sharing all her knowledge, tips, tools and connections out there – to help business leaders to realize the change faster.
She invites everyone: changemakers, conscious business leaders, social intrapreneurs, social entrepreneurs, sustainability and CSR leaders, people on the search on how to make a difference or how to scale your positive impact - to the Doing Business Doing Good platform to connect and inspire, and empower each other.
