In 2016, Thomas Muirhead (Utopy co-founder) gave a Ted x talk entitled Beyond Giving: how we bring about positive social change in the world.
As Managing Director of innovative non-profit Child.org – a charity that’s determined to put social entrepreneurship at the heart of their income generation strategy – Thomas is well placed to takes a bold position on how we bring about positive social change in the world. He strongly believes the amount of resource, time and effort we currently commit to solving the world’s problems won’t get us very far. He advocates a reconfiguring and repositioning of the non-profit sector – blurring the lines with what we currently consider the for-profit sector.
Throughout his career Thomas has always balanced work in a range of non-profit organisations with an entrepreneurial series of side projects, from a digital agency, tech startups to music and retail projects. This combination of entrepreneurship and social good is what he believes will take us Beyond Giving.
