These social business speeches spotlight a number of very well-known and successful social businesses, as well as the lesser known ones that are creating hugely positive change. This collection of speeches also features some speakers who criticize current social business models and offer alternative solutions.

'The Generosity Experiment' is the focus of Sasha Dichter's speech. He reflects on the experience during which he said "yes" to every charitable endeavor. He believes that true philanthropists and social entrepreneurs will be willing to say "yes" to anything in this field as a means to promote a cause or drive a message home.

The speeches by Jessica Flannery discuss her non-profit Kiva. Flannery created Kiva to help small entrepreneurs in East Africa establish their own businesses to support themselves and their family. To date, Kiva has helped create 850,000 businesses.

Activist and fundraiser Dan Pallotta explores the many myths within the non-profit sector. While the majority of people assume that charities and foundations work a particular way, they are quite wrong. Because of overhead rules and donation caps, it is actually extremely challenging for non-profits to push their agendas further and put their plans into action.

These social business speeches provide insight for those who are unfamiliar with the topic and also showcase some of the most successful organizations that currently exist.
