DGDW 2010

Overview and Highlights

The 2010 Doing Good and Doing Well Conference (DGDW), hosted in partnership with IESE Business School, challenged more than 680 attendees to explore how socially responsible organizations and companies can go from “Niche to Mass Market.” More than 100 speakers shared their perspectives on how businesses can scale their organizations successfully and the challenges they face in growing their operations.

The conference drew a diverse audience of professionals and students representing 70 nationalities and 23 Net Impact chapters, including students from nearly every major business school in Europe. Over two days attendees expanded their networks, explored career opportunities and gained insights from our distinguished speakers.

Highlights included

  • Engaging keynote addresses from Michel Camdessus, former Managing Director of the IMF, and Vicky Colbert, Founder and Executive Director of Escuela Nueva
  • 28 dynamic panels such as “Today, Tomorrow and the Future of Energy: Kyoto, Copenhagen and Beyond”, and “NGOs, Government Organizations, Nonprofits: Working Together for Social Impact”
  • Cleantech Venture seminar entrepreneurs presented their business ideas to venture capitalist firms and IQ Wind was awarded the first ever DGDW viewer’s choice award
  • Social entrepreneurs discussed their business models at the Social Entrepreneurship Workshop and WiHood was awarded the viewer’s choice award
  • 30 exhibitors at the Career Forum shared job opportunities and career advice

While attendees and speakers shared concerns about how the financial crisis would affect the expansion of socially responsible businesses, many agreed there has never been a more important time to grow these businesses. Joint efforts by the nonprofit, the for-profit and the public sector will be necessary to make them part of the mainstream economy.
