resource image

Problem solvers such as social enterprises, social entrepreneurs and the small farm movement are demonstrating we can tackle society’s most stubborn problems affordably. How do we reinvent government to make it all happen? Shaun's best-selling book, An Army of Problem Solvers was published in October 2016. The book is based on his experiences either co-founding or mentoring 11 social enterprises across Canada including BUILD Inc, which won the 2011 Scotia Bank EcoLiving Green Business of the Year and the 2013. Shaun is the first prairie Canadian to be awarded an Ashoka Fellowship (2015) and was Ernst and Young's Entrepreneur of the Year in 2014. Shaun lives in Winnipeg, with his partner Fiona. Between them they have three teenage boys. Shaun is proud to be part of a strong visionary social enterprise team that is flourishing across the country. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.
