Buy1GIVE1 (B1G1) gives you the power to change lives every day. Imagine if every time you bought or sold something, it made a tangible difference
A group of B1G1 members in Melbourne were so lucky to have Paul Dunn and Masami Sato fly in for the lunch then return straight to the airport. Their vision to connect the world through giving is now spreading across the globe.
Information on the speakers:
Masami Sato was born in Japan yet her desire to expand her horizons took her on a journey of exploration travelling throughout the world.
Her way of travelling was about connecting with people to gain insights and understandings of different cultures, lifestyles and environment. In the past 16 years, she has lived in Canada, Guatemala, New Zealand, Australia and Singapore and travelled to more than 30 countries in 5 continents.
Though originally educated to become an architect in Japan, her career has followed her diverse talent and extensive interests having been a teacher, a translator, an entrepreneur and a natural food chef (and a farmer!). Since 2001, she has co-founded and run commercial enterprises aiming to transform the way businesses are operated today.
And by taking a completely new look at the power of connection and business giving, she founded B1G1 in 2007—to create a world that's full of giving. B1G1 now works with more than 500 businesses globally and lists over 600 projects in 29 countries.
She is also an author of two books, 'JOY - The gift of acceptance, trust and love' and 'ONE - Sharing the joy of giving'.
Paul Dunn is at the forefront of management and marketing action on a global basis. Australia's leading business magazine described him in 2011 as 'a marketing guru turned philanthropist'.
He is an engineer by training but he soon discovered people were more interesting than "things". He began his career in Australia at Hewlett Packard where he was one of just ten people in the Australian start up of the company.
In 1974, Paul wrote some innovative software that became the basis for one of Australia's early technological successes—Hartley Computer. Until 1980 Paul was the marketing genius behind the company growing globally to a $23 Million enterprise.
In late 1980, Paul decided that his real love was marketing AND speaking so he formed The Results Corporation. By 1992 his company had grown to a $20 million company serving 23,000 businesses. Many individuals and companies around the world credit Paul with changing their businesses and their lives.
In 1992 Paul formed Results Accountants' Systems to focus again on Accountants in Public Practice — teaching them how to leverage their skills to create far better businesses for their clients. And by the year 2000, it was serving over 3,500 practices. 17,700 Accountants and 156,000 Small to medium Scale businesses worldwide.
In 2000, Paul sold all of his business interests to 'retire'. But he continued speaking around the world and writing. He followed up the success of his first book, Write Right with, 'The Firm of the Future' written with Ronald A. Baker. It launched in 2003 is now regarded as a standard text for professional service firms.
In 2006 Paul had what he describes as a very personal experience with people impacted by the 2004 Tsunami. "It was," he says, "my first real understanding of the power businesses have to change our lives."
Then in late 2006 whilst conducting a large-scale mentoring program, Paul worked with Masami Sato who at the time was running a Gourmet Food business that had giving as one of its central pillars.
It was in that program that the idea of B1G1 first 'popped'. Masami called Paul 5 days later saying she realised that if she 'let go' of her food business, she could create something that literally could change the way business was done. Hence the birth of B1G1.
Months later, Paul was made Chairman of the Company. He now invests all of his time and incredible energy and passion into the growth of B1G1 around the world.
