The Change Makers - July 2013
Steve Jobs famously said - "The ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do."
Richard Branson recently posted “My professional inspiration has no separation from my personal inspiration: it is people who will stop at nothing to make a positive difference to other people’s lives. I am fortunate to come across quite a few of these game-changing people, and the desire to help (and keep up with them!) is what drives me”.

We call these people the Change Makers. It is so exciting to see leaders around the world driving change, yet it is also the many people around us every day who are creating change. These are the people who inspired the launch of Together SA - Building Our Future.
There are so many who are part of the generation that is changing South Africa for good and each day more and more people are putting their ideas into action and making the choice to become active citizens. Click here to see an inspirational change maker in the area of Education.

It is our generation who have the responsibility to leave the planet in a better condition than we found it. Another example of a change maker is the Treasure Karoo action group who are thinking of future generations - our children and our grandchildren and taking on the challenge of saving one of South Africa’s most beautiful areas.

Because the media often give precedence to the negative stories, those who deserve the recognition, our unsung heroes, go unnoticed. After two years of development, the Together SA platform has recently been launched to and for the public. Together SA - Building Our Future gives a free platform to South Africans to share their stories, receive the support and recognition they deserve and through highlighting their stories inspire others to do the same.

In closing we salute Richard Branson and the Bteam
A growing trend in business is focusing on a purpose beyond profit. Known as Social Entrepreneurs or Conscious Business, a socially conscious company incorporates its values into its business practices; it is never just about profit. Along with bringing about positive change in family, community and the work place, a socially conscious business can be enormously rewarding, personally. “Business has the power to make the world better” – Richard Branson - http://bteam.org
