The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network and the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia invite you to the next Workshop in this event series on August 13th 2015.

Business in the 21st century is not all straight lines! We can create amazing possibilities for change at work if we consider the ideas, imaginings and a unique perspectives we all have.  The challenge for us is to discover how we can cultivate and access our creativity and inspiration in that space.  In a world of immediacy, transience and constant progress it makes sense for work to adopt a flexible and dynamic attitude.  Art can help us to be open to novel, usual and alternative look at the world.  To help you explore this challenge and enlighten your view to an inspired working reality, our inimitable Lisa Philip-Harbutt will share her insights on creativity and dynamic organisations with us in August to discuss, What's Art Got To Do With It.

The Australia and New Zealand Chapter (ANZ) of the Humanistic Management Network held our July 2015 workshop co-hosted with the Leadership Lab at the University of Adelaide in South Australia on the 1st of July 2015.

How can we improve our working lives by enhancing our social spaces?  The idea of the 'third place' has caught the imagination of numerous commentators, researchers and managers over the last few decades.  The concept emerged in 1982 when the importance of stress free spaces was realised as providing a valuable place for relief from the pressures of work and home (the two other places).  Social spaces, away from the dominant life paradigms (work and home), can provide a convivial environment which can enhance social relations, create a supportive community and help build personal resilience as tensions at work and home wax and wane.

We welcomed our guest for July, Dr Peter Sandiford from the University of Adelaide Business School who will shared his research, perspectives and musings about the Third Space and its potential contribution to enriching organisational well-being.  Peter has extensively researched the use and value of social space in community and society from a number of perspectives and you can download the workshop summary below.

We have compiled a paper containing a collection of eleven short Impact Investing scenario cases. The papers are researched and written by the participants of our Master's Level course on Impact Investing which took place in the Contextual Studies at the University of St. Gallen in the Spring Semester of 2015.

Investments aiming to generate a positive social and / or environmental impact as well as some financial return have become known as impact investments over recent years and have gained substantial momentum in both the finance and social entrepreneurship community.

In this course participants researched a suitable investment opportunity for an impact investor and then developed a structure for a fictitious investment. This investment structure was presented at length during the course and student teams also delivered short papers on their investment proposal which are compiled in this document.
