Businesses as a force for Good - How businesses are changing the World.

Baka – Speaker for Feb. 7th meeting, 6:30 pm. Rafik Riad "Buy Good Feel Good", Centre for Social Innovation. “Businesses as a force for Good - How businesses are changing the World.”

The talk will explore the rising trend of social enterprises and how they contribute to global development and poverty reduction. Using his own experience, Rafik will highlight the main criticism to mainstream development models and provide the audience with Canadian examples of social enterprises that are doing good at home and abroad.
Rafik has studied and worked in Canada, Egypt, Germany, England, and Tanzania on issues related to poverty, environment, climate change, and tourism. Rafik co-founded SALT, a fair trade social enterprise working with several communities in Africa and Latin America. Realizing that there was little done to promote fair trade and social enterprises in North America, Rafik shifted his focus to help create an enabling environment for social enterprises to thrive and founded the "Buy Good. Feel Good." Expo in 2014 and BGFG Events in 2018.
