Sofia, 27 November 2020 At a time when the world is picking up on solidarity and support amid the global pandemic that has been going on for almost a year, UNICEF will try to help business leaders find and use their mission and cause in order not just to survive a crisis, but to develop and grow business as well as teams and people. On December 11, 2020, UNICEF will host the first edition of the annual GIVE 2 GROW summit - a different event that will feed many business leaders with ideas and positive energy.
GIVE 2 GROW is a special virtual event developed by UNICEF for business leaders of successful and fast-growing companies that will provide opportunities for knowledge sharing, idea-generation and networking. According to Deloitte Insights, purpose-driven companies witness higher market share gains and grow three times faster on average than their competitors, all while achieving higher workforce and customer satisfaction, and the Global Purpose Index shows that 85% of purpose led companies are showing a positive growth and 42% on non-purpose led companies are showing drop in revenue.
Participants will have the chance to see and hear very inspiring speakers, businesses and stories, as well as practical ideas and tips on how to work and live with a mission and a cause. The main topics to be discussed are:
- How to grow the business and why purpose-driven businesses are more successful
- How to grow the team and why employees of purpose driven businesses are more engaged and successful
- How to grow yourself and why people that give back are better leaders, more successful and happier
Among the participants in the GIVE 2 GROW program, in addition to the inspiring Stephen Shedletski, are business leaders of leading global and local companies, personal and team development specialists, and etc., who will share experiences and stories about the benefits of creating and developing businesses, teams and life with a cause.

What makes us so powerful as human beings is that we can make а progress and leave our legacy. When we find our purpose, our WHY, we find what we care to contribute and the impact that we wish to have is though our lives and though our careers what’s fun is that when you do this thing called life and career properly you can have an infinite impact.
The event will give the opportunity to the participants to practically experience what will be talked about, namely the emotion to give, to become part of a meaningful and important cause. For this purpose, each paid registration will be a donation to UNICEF Bulgaria Inclusive Education program for more accessible and comprehensive education for children with special needs.
Businesses have always been part of UNICEF’s story. The business sector plays a crucial role in the ability of UNICEF to deliver results for children, both by raising vital funding and by supporting advocacy and delivery of the child rights agenda. Yes, in UNICEF we see business as going beyond being a donor to also providing ideas and solutions, products, innovations, market reach, research and development, and expertise to support and improve the lives of children and young people. At the GIVE2GROW summit we will engage with and hear from business leaders of leading global and local companies about how their operations are improving children’s lives, and how we can join-up our work in key areas to achieve even more results together.
