A message from Rachael Brown, Convener, CAN DO Collective
“We have brilliant minds, innovations, impacts and most of all, kindness.”
It feels like the last week has brought home how much of a defining moment in our history this is, the world has changed.
It’s times like these that entrepreneurial thinking shows it’s true value, yes we are in troubling times, very troubling, but we also choose how to behave and can create the next steps ourselves. We have brilliant minds, innovations, impacts and most of all, kindness.
We, as humans, are defined by what we do in difficult times, I have read many stories over the last few days about local businesses cooking meals, creating food packs, sharing resources and taking time to support the most vulnerable in our society.
This is leadership, this is community
