JessEkstromThe Future of Work: Making a Living and Making a Difference. It's always been a choice (do good or make money) but it shouldn't have to be. "For-purpose" businesses are on the rise and have incorporated social good into a profitable business model. However, there's also controversy regarding businesses (like mine) that profit from social issues. But the reality is that companies can do more good by incorporating a social component into a business model rather than asking for donations.CEO at Headabands of HopeHeadbands of Hope

JohannaLogreiraCreActivity: How our life and wellbeing can improve if we use a lot of creativity every day. How if we are conscious of being creative, our life can transform problems into goals, learn in the process and reach a very disruptive solution. My speech gives people tools to begin a creative life style so they can change and evolve things around; and like this create new ideas that can make the difference. Also is a fun speech, which is good for the brain and mental health,as they share a strong relation. Creativity can change the way you assume your life and can strength your mind to avoid future mental illnesses. I suffer a long and deep depression, and creativity change it all.Industrial Designer and creativity speaker. Passionate about creativity and innovation.Independent at CreActividad
