When Restaurant Leaders Become Changers of Commerce

Remember Live Aid back in 1986?

 

Remember seeing Queen give one of the best performances in rock history? Phil Collins playing both London and Philadelphia?

 

Remember how it made us all fell to be a planetary communality that day?

 

You want to feel that feeling again? Well you can by helping out and getting involved and being a rock star as a Changers of Commerce. It’s a group of people who through the power of leadership stemming from the restaurant industry, work together, civil groups, NGOs, private enterprise, and the public who benefit by considering and responding to the evolving needs and beliefs of society today. Imagine if we all “took that “it takes a village”, mentality and incorporated it into every aspect of a business strategy as a key driver of sustainable business success.

 

Its old school-meets new-school, small town-meets-big business. It means understanding that in our ever-more-connected world, that which affects our stakeholders affects us now more than ever before.”

This past summer, some very dear friends of mine from the service industry went on a trip (I sadly could not join them on this round) to Ethiopia where the situations of what Band Aid worked so hard for are still a tragic issue for its people. What became a fact finding mission to better understand the needs of the many, turned into something else. It became a passion to help those that want to help themselves! This rag tag band of leaders decided to find a way to raise money to help these local leaders build wells for fresh water, crops and get them on a path that will alter the course of their villages for generations.

 

The starvation is still there. The lack of clean water is still there. But what is also there is the human spirit to survive. The human moral fibers to help.

 

On August 21, 2012 the Changers of Commerce are holding a Tweet-a-Thon to raise money and awareness for their mission. The goal is $10,000. The ability to make that happen is real! Go to this link and donate. Even though the tweet-a-thon is over the site is still accepting donations.

 

Tweet it out to your followers, post it on your Facebook pages, sky write it if you feel it will help. But help.

Here’s the links and the tools you need. Now stop reading this and forward it around and be a Changer of Commerce. Be the hope for a better tomorrow.

TED TALKS VIDEO

TED: Hamish Jolly: A shark-deterrent wetsuit (and it's not what you think) - Hamish Jolly (2013)

Hamish Jolly, an ocean swimmer in Australia, wanted a wetsuit that would deter a curious shark from mistaking him for a potential source of nourishment. (Which, statistically, is rare, but certainly a fate worth avoiding.) Working with a team of scientists, he and his friends came up with a fresh approach — not a shark cage, not a suit of chain-mail, but a sleek suit that taps our growing understanding of shark vision.

TED: Michel Laberge: How synchronized hammer strikes could generate nuclear fusion - Michel Laberge (2014)

Our energy future depends on nuclear fusion, says Michel Laberge. The plasma physicist runs a small company with a big idea for a new type of nuclear reactor that could produce clean, cheap energy. His secret recipe? High speeds, scorching temperatures and crushing pressure. In this hopeful talk, he explains how nuclear fusion might be just around the corner.

TED: Sarah Lewis: Embrace the near win - Sarah Lewis (2014)

At her first museum job, art historian Sarah Lewis noticed something important about an artist she was studying: Not every artwork was a total masterpiece. She asks us to consider the role of the almost-failure, the near win, in our own lives. In our pursuit of success and mastery, is it actually our near wins that push us forward?

TED: Matthew Carter: My life in typefaces - Matthew Carter (2014)
