For our tenth episode, Naomi Smith and Reegan Quick sit down with Dan Code, an associate consultant with Social Ventures Australia, an organisation dedicated to supporting social impact through offering services like consulting and impact investment for the non-for-profit space. Together they discuss the need to understand the context you’re operating in, Dan’s experience working in Tanzania, the relevance of an MBA in social impact, the importance of organisations like Social Ventures Australia and a unique perspective of the role of philanthropy.
"It's quite easy to sit in an office and think that you're having a really fantastic impact, but it is really about talking to the people you end up working with and testing with them: is this working or is there anything that we can do better?"
