When Sectors Collide
By Gary Buxton , July 2017
is Director of Youth Services for B-Corp Ingeus
and works in partnership with over 25 non-profit organisations nationally to deliver National Citizen Service to around 15,000 young people a year.
From having worked for most of his career in non-profit organisations, in this provocation piece When Sectors Collide Magic Happens
, Gary reflects on the considerations of moving from non-profit to for-profit, and how collaborations between sectors can bring stability in otherwise uncertain times.
He argues that the world is always changing and in order to keep delivering social impact, creating a fusion between those organisations who can secure large government contracts and local non-profit organisations gives everyone the chance to play to their strengths. As the sectors increasingly learn from each other, he says that the future of of social impact is enhanced - when sectors collide, magic happens.
