The social licence to operate

Can organisations exist in societies that are failing? Are organisations part of the problem or the solution? How should organizations behave to become sustainable, resilient and focused on society? Focusing on inclusion, innovation, honesty and other key elements, this talk outlines what organisations will need to survive in a technology driven society. Junita is passionate about empowering people and organisations to think differently about the way they do business. Over the past few years, Junita has consulted with some of the biggest and most sought after organisations in South Africa and Africa – empowering boards and executives to ensure sustainability and resilience within their organisations. Junita sees herself as a change agent, using her consulting insight and expertise to add value to organisations. She is innovative in her approach and believes that organisational culture, buy-in and corporate responsibility are some of the most important aspects to ensure sustainable business practices. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organised by a local community.
