Cognitiv Means Business returns in September, welcoming Andy Green who will look at the importance of becoming a better social capitalist and how this is the key to career and business success.

Once you acquire Social Capital glasses you spot the symptoms of its decline in all areas of your work, in declining memberships, engagement, and growing apathy or inertia.

In a thought-provoking, inspirational and practical session ‘Why you need to become a Social Capitalist’, Andy will open your eyes to the hidden crisis our society faces but provide you with new hope, tools and way forward to help you, your organization and the communities you serve thrive.

You can use these new tools and thinking in your business networks, your team, your supply chain, and even among your competitors. The tools provided will empower you to collaborate better and to create the change you want to see in the world
