Join Our Tribe Of Conscious Business People
We can do more, be more, and create more positive impact, together. Whether you’re a purpose led business, social enterprise, not-for-profit, or just a business person looking to do good, this is your tribe. Join us and let’s change the world.
What We Are All About
There are thousands of conscious people living and working in the Northeast of Australia – and beyond. People who run or work for organisations that make decisions considering more than just profits. People who are dreaming up ways they can put their own spin on solving the challenges around us.
These amazing individuals are often doing good in isolation, unconnected, and continuously reinventing the wheel. Struggling alone, unnecessarily, in the good fight. We want to change all that.
To foster this tribe, we put on events. Our goal is to have regular, local gatherings across this region with the odd big bang, awesome enough for people to travel to. We’re inspired by the global B Corp movement. We’re for any organisation or person contributing to the greater good.
When we come together we can share ideas, be inspired and help each other grow. Leverage the power of the collective consciousness. Be energised by each other. Your tribe. Join us in the journey. Join your tribe.

Business As A Force For Good
BUSINESS-AS-USUAL IS NOT ADDRESSING SOCIETY’S CHALLENGES
- Socially minded entrepreneurs and organizations are contributing to the greater good in whatever ways we can and choose.
- Some create quality jobs, some foster healthier environments, some build stronger communities, and some tackle societal issues.
- Some seek to buy from responsible companies, work for organisations with shared-value mentality, do business with companies that show they care.
- With society’s infinite challenges and goals, it’s imperative for businesses to take on some responsibility and lead endeavors when we can.
