Join Sir Ronald Cohen, the pioneering philanthropist, venture capitalist, private equity investor and social innovator, to discuss his new book, IMPACT: Reshaping capitalism to drive real change.

The talk will be moderated by Professor Ngaire Woods, Dean of the Blavatnik School of Government, and followed by opportunities for Q&A.

Throughout the world, capitalism and democracy are being challenged with great force. We are facing huge social and environmental problems. IMPACT evaluates how the world must change – and not by throwing money at old ideas that no longer work. To change the world, we must change how we do business, starting with where and how we invest our money.

In IMPACT, Sir Ronnie seeks to demonstrate that a solution is within our grasp. He calls it the Impact Revolution.

He shows us how, driven by impact investment, it is reshaping our economic system, transforming the private sector from a polluter and driver of inequality into a powerful force for good; distributing opportunity more fairly; and bringing solutions to our great social and environmental challenges. And that it promises to be as innovative and disruptive as the Tech Revolution that has preceded it.
