Christchurch Business Forum

From August 06, 2021 6:45 pm until 8:00 pm

The purpose underlying these events is to (i) present challenging content and in particular how faith affects our businesses (ii) encourage each other, and (iii) make new connections over great food.

We are excited to welcome Lisa Mead. Lisa runs a social impact business called Social Currency, which is a purpose-driven accounting firm committed to giving 10% of sales to supporting at-risk kiwi kids through mentoring programs and charity partnerships.

Social Currency is an accounting, tax and business advisory firm like any other, but also supports social enterprises and creates social impact reports for purpose-driven businesses making an impact and wanting to share their story.

Lisa has been working as an accountant since 2008 and is a Chartered Accountant working with a variety of businesses and people all over New Zealand, and globally. With a passion for what she does and the Charities she supports coming from a personal struggle against the odds, Lisa's son is very much the driving force behind her determination.

The purpose of Social Currency is to be a positive impact in the lives of vulnerable young people in New Zealand, and is well on the way to fulfilling the mission, having already donated over $30,000 to support at-risk Kiwi kids.

Hear how taking a leap of faith has supported Lisa in her journey, and how building a successful and nationally recognised accounting practise has been able to happen in such a short space of time.

As an organising committee we felt it was important to restart these networking breakfasts. We always received such positive feedback and have had numerous people asking when the next event would be. If you enjoyed them as much as others, we encourage you to pass on the invitation and let others share the same faith filled experience that you and hundreds of others have.

All the best and look forward to seeing you on the 6th of August.
