Two of the most popular presentations at this year’s Engage for Good conference were opening remarks by purpose pioneer Carol Cone and a talk by CARE’s Chris Noble on the challenges and opportunities faced by organizations seeking to collaborate.
In order to spread the valuable lessons Carol and Chris shared, we’re making these presentations available to the Engage for Good community.
