VisualFizz Talks for the Greater Good Series: Poverty and Homelessness

This Event’s Theme: Marketing For the Greater Good: How To Put A Dent on Poverty & Homelessness

“The best minds of my generation are thinking about how to make people click ads. That sucks” -Jeff Hammerbacher, one of Facebook’s first 100 employees

Problem(s):

Poverty and Homelessness Rates Remain HighGoals: Help Fight Poverty and Homelessness, starting in our local communities.

What Actions Can We Take In Our Communities to Combat These Social Issues?

Summary: Marketers and Entreprenuers are smart people. They have a deep understanding of the way people think and are able to sway opinions, sell items to those who didn't even know they needed them, and expose truths about the world.

We know that the brains of marketers and entrepreneurs are hard-wired to solve old problems in new, innovative, and creative ways. We know that you have a day job, which does not always leave a lot of time to devote towards volunteering to make your community a better place. We also know that each of us brings a unique set of skills, experiences, and ideas to the table, and we think there's a great opportunity to put those experiences to good use. The purpose of VisualFizz (http://www.visualfizz.com/)Talks For The Greater Good Series is to better utilize the incredibly smart and savvy brains of marketers and entrepreneurs for the greater good of our communities.

That's why we're inviting a limited number of innovative and intelligent minds to discuss and analyze the current state of Poverty and Homelessness in our community and the deeper repercussions at hand, then put their heads together to do what entrepreneurs and marketers do best - find tangible ways to solve real problems. Whether it’s starting small in our local neighborhoods or on a national scale, we want to know: how can marketers use their unique experiences to make a difference?

What To Expect:

5:30-6:15pm: Networking

6:15 - 7:00pm: Small group breakout and brainstorm discussions

7:00 - 8pm: Presentation of group solutions, large group discussion on soutions presented

We'll start with a small breakout session to discuss the current state of the topic, important questions, problems, variables, and finally, solutions. After the small breakout sessions and brainstorm, we will reconvene as a group for an outcome-focused discussion.

If a plausible and accomplishable solution is discovered, 100% of ticket proceeds will go towards taking immediate action to help improve the current state of the problem(s) in our Chicago communities.

Again, this event will be limited to 20-30 people. The focus of the event is to create real and meaningful connections. NO forced elevator pitches, no pitching your latest startup or autobiography.

We will serve beer, wine, and a non-alcoholic option.

We look forward to seeing you!
