Agenda

Every day, we begin with a session on Personal Ecology. A feature Case Study follows. Morning Case Studies are the core of the Social Change Institute model and are where some of the greatest learning happens. Selected participants give a brief description of an organizational challenge and answer follow-up questions from a panel of experts. Time is also given over the audience to weigh in.

Afternoons focus on timely topics during group sessions, one-on-one mentorship meetings, workshops and skills training.

Evenings are alive with Ignite presentations, dynamic interviews, experiential learning, music, socials, dancing and the magical Hollyhock campus under the stars, oceanside fire-pit circles, and rich connection time. And it all happens in one of the most beautiful places on the planet: Hollyhock. Our meals spread across Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner are what glue the conference community and agenda together.

Case Study
9:15 am - 11:00 am

Case Studies are central to Hollyhock’s Social Change Institute model and where some of the greatest learning happens. They are an opportunity for organizations to share a key challenge with a panel of experts and the gathering as a whole for constructive feedback, advice and direction. Every morning we feature a Case Study. Presenters describe their entrepreneurial challenge and answer follow-up questions from a panel of experts, then the audience. Reflection and advice are then given about leading a social venture business, while the presenter listens silently. Both experts and audience provide practical and personal insight. Most of us in the room learn alongside our courageous entrepreneur, who opens up the rarely revealed inside story.
