The Hague Humanity Hub and ImpactCity warmly invite you to the Masterclass on the Basic Principles of Social Entrepreneurship with John Marks.

John Marks is a social entrepreneur who founded Search for Common Ground and headed it for 32 years. Together with Susan Collin Marks, his wife and SFCG’s Executive Vice President, he developed it into the largest peacebuilding NGO in the world with 600 staff members and offices in 35 countries. The organisation has been nominated for the 2018 Nobel Peace Prize. On July 9 at The Hague Humanity Hub, John will lead an interactive workshop in which he describes the basic operating principles that he has found underlie successful social entrepreneurship.

The workshop will provide a practical framework for the next generation of social entrepreneurs, starting from vision and moving into effective action. The ideas presented will draw from John’s extensive experience, as well as from the wisdom of participants. The goal will be to lead participants through the possibilities that abound when they grasp their inner potential to make a difference and to carry out the work that the world so badly needs.

This workshop is designed for professionals, social entrepreneurs, startups, as well as students active or interested in the field of peacebuilding.

At this workshop you will:

  • Understand the basic operating principles of successful social entrepreneurship
  • Learn about the challenges of building a global enterprise
  • Network with a community of innovators in the fields of peace, justice and humanitarian action
  • Get inspired by one of the world’s most successful social entrepreneurs

This event will be followed by networking drinks. First drink is on the house.

Tickets are available here.
