The Digital Village Show: Purpose-Driven Organisations

Episode 4

Purpose provides both the foundations for a business and a way to evaluate its reason for existence. With a wider acceptance endeavours should extend beyond economic exchange, we’re shifting from why to how to create purpose-driven organisations.

This month, we’ll be chatting with our two guests about modern business, the leaders of a new age and how organisations are adapting to the needs of people, society and the environment.

Tegan Smith, CEO of OPAL Rheumatology, has grown a powerhouse medical research business from her living room that now supports 210,000 patients in Australia.

Our second guest, Tim Duggan, co-founder of Junkee Media and author of Cult Status, has been praised for his insights & thoughts on how businesses are becoming principled, purposeful and creative to cater to changing clients.
