It is a wrap for Social Impact

Today, I handed in the final assignment of my Social Impact course. It has been a full-on year that tested me in so many ways and while it has been a privilege to go back to study, I am ready for this chapter to finish.

It was a four-unit graduate certificate delivered in blocks of 6 weeks over a year and designed for people working in the social sector. We covered areas such as social entrepreneurship, measurement for social impact, philanthropy and social investment as well as leadership.

It was fantastic to learn alongside some amazing people as well as hear from amazing speakers from the Not-For-Profit space as well as from the corporate world. It was also lovely to study at UWA which has to be one of Australia’s most beautiful campuses. It was so lovely to walk through the campus each day to get to the Business School and enjoy the lovely campus.

Apart from a short trip to Bali, the next challenge is to put it into practice. A common struggle is that people come out from such experiences and want to put it into practice but organisations are run by those who haven’t been through the program and aren’t really open to new idea and are hell bent on keeping the status quo.

But that’s going to change. Society deserves better than mediocre services, leaders and organisations. Enough excuses and things are going to change. Trust me!!

Dinner down Little Way

Little way is a popular venue for drinks for my uni posse so after a long day at class we moseyed on over for a well-earned drink.

With its space out the back, it is a great venue for medium sized groups to chill and catch up.

Since it my older sister’s birthday, I thought it would be nice to take her for dinner here after we had finished with the posse.

It is quiet cafĂ© and just perfect for a grown-up dinner for two. Little Way’s contemporary Australian (with strong European influences) menu and wine lists are nice and not over the top.

We found it hard to choose because it all looked so good.

I went for the confit pork belly with baby vegetables which was like a super nice Sunday roast. The pork was cooked to perfection and the veggies were a joy to eat.

My sister went for the slow cooked lamb shoulder with the warm French lentil salad which went down a treat.  She loved that the meat was so tender and the flavours were balanced by the salad.

The staff were great and made it a really nice evening. Little Way is a really nice place to enjoy a meal with a small group of friends and family.
