I enjoy being a staff writer for 3BL Media/Justmeans on topics - Social Innovation, Social Enterprise and Social Entrepreneurs. When I am not writing for 3BL Media/Justmeans, I wear my other hat as owner of Serendipity PR. Over the years I have worked with high-profile, big, powerful brands and organisations within the public, not-for-profit and corporate sectors; and won awards from my industry. I believe in the power of serendipity for business and superheroes. I also am a Twitter lover and believe that social media is a digital constellation:connecting people in an easily explored galaxy. I would also describe myself as a Spiritual Entrepreneur, Conscious Explorer and Futurist. I enjoy helping others, paying it forward and being a mum.

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Sustainability is now a top issue for many consumer market businesses, irrespective of whether it is driven by regulators, employees, consumers or even competitors. Companies of all sizes and sectors are quickly adopting sustainable business practices to look after human and natural resources. Reporting on sustainable practices is also becoming high on the corporate agendas, though reporting itself is a challenge because of complex supply chains that many retail, food, drink and consumer good companies rely on, making it difficult to track and measure the true impact that the company has on the environment.   

So, Bacardi...

(3BLMedia/Justmeans) - While we all can see that journalism is changing, yet globally, the majority of high-profile journalists and editors are still male. Although there have been considerable changes in the prospects for women working in the media in the past few decades, women are still in the minority in the top journalistic roles. Relatively few are rising to senior jobs and the pay gap between male and female journalists remains a wide one. Moreover, as women get older, it is difficult for them to retain a place in journalism.

There has been a lot of...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Burma, also known as Myanmar, has been closed to the outside world for many years, but now is beginning to open its doors. Democracy leader and Nobel Peace laureate Aung San Suu Kyi is this country’s most famous woman leader, yet there are other courageous women like her, following in her footsteps. Many women in this part of the world have spent years stifled under a military regime, where they have been trapped in traditional roles, with little access to education, limiting their freedom.

The We Women foundation that provides educational opportunities to Burmese women...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Many big corporates make huge donations to charities, yet are still viewed sceptically by the public. It is clear that giving away millions won’t improve a company’s profile or brand; neither is it the best way to drive social change. There has been a real call on businesses globally to create economic value in a way that also stimulates social value. We are now seeing a growing number of companies responding to this ‘ask,’ where they are integrating social issues into the core of...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Many people with autism have unusual talents, from pattern memory, to extreme focus and accuracy. These skills could be used by companies to solve real business needs. Unfortunately, most companies don’t give people with autism a chance nor do they perceive their value in business terms because they think or behave differently. Yet, by bringing out the best in people who think differently, you can position your company for greater advantage and that’s because innovation, which is a critical skill for businesses today, is driven by diversity of thought. This ability arises from employees who see things from new perspectives - people from...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) Transport mobility should be basic need in the free market system, especially where resources and roads are scarce.  In places like the African bush, quality of life depends upon affordable transportation. While in rural villages throughout the developing world there are women and children who walk miles to retrieve water, or patients traveling by foot for medical attention or food cultivation is slowed down without the power of a farming vehicle. In India, the country's rural folk, who make up 70...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - Whatever side of the world we are living on, there is one factor that we have in common: all our economies are linear. That is, we dig things out of the ground, turn them into products that last from minutes to a few years, and then stick them back into the ground as landfill. This wastes resources and money, and harms the environment through both extraction and disposal. Though we can minimise our use of resources, we will still need raw materials to make the products we consume. So how do we avoid environmental impact, reduce our exposure to volatile and rising commodity prices, and capture the valuable...

(3BL Media/Justmeans) - A U.K. think tank, the Overseas Development Institute, says that one in three people worldwide are now overweight. Mainly, this increase is seen in the developing world, particularly in countries where incomes are rising, such as Egypt and Mexico. In the U.K. 64 per cent of adults are classed as being overweight or obese. Changes in lifestyle, the increasing availability of processed foods, advertising—have all led to dietary changes. Or is it something else: is obesity a socially transmitted disease?
