Andrea talks with Luke Geary, founding partner of the world’s first social enterprise law firm, Salvos Legal.
Luke is a creative and strategic thinker but also someone who makes things happen. We covered so many topics including how he came up with the idea of a social enterprise model for a law firm, the challenges of running a business, his work to end modern slavery, investing in local communities, what he considers to be legal innovation and how technology can minimise legal disputes, and towards the end we discuss how a fortune cookie shaped his career!
Did you know there are over 15 000 people in modern slavery in Australia today? We recorded this interview in December 2018 a couple of days after Human Rights Day which coincidentally was when the Modern Slavery Act was passed into law and which we talk about in this episode.
The theme for this episode is innovation to address significant social wrong through business.
This episode will be of significant interest to you if you are struggling with sustainable funding for your organisation, want to know more about the impact of the Modern Slavery Act on your business, or wonder how you can do social good while making money at the same time!
