“The IMPACT Series”
Maverick Entrepreneurs, Visionaries & Impactful Leaders Coming Together to Connect, Collaborate and Co-Create for the Greater Good.
What is an IMPACT MEGAmind?
Let’s start with what this is NOT…It will likely be nothing like any other Zoom meeting or “networking event” you’ve ever attended.
Instead you’ll be taking part in a bit of an “odd” experiment…because we think those are fun.
Over the years, we’ve done many different impact sessions with various business icons and leaders. Like most experiments – some worked – others didn’t. So now we are taking the best of what we’ve learned and creating a series of Maverick MEGAminds that will support 3 things we care a whole lot about:
THE BEES, THE TREES AND THE SEAS
We have selected these 3 global challenges to focus on within this 3-part series. Each MEGAmind will provide an opportunity to learn from world-class experts, mentor social entrepreneurs in these sectors and brainstorm ideas on breakthrough solutions for our own companies and beyond.
The Maverick IMPACT MEGAmind Is All About Using ‘Purposeful Play’ To Activate These 3 Maverick Multipliers… For The Greater Good.
Maverick Multiplier #1: CONNECT with potential high-leverage partners, founders, CEOs and successful business leaders across multiple industries and marketplaces.
(The group is always highly curated and by invite only)
Maverick Multiplier #2: CATALYZE. Purposeful Play is designed to not only be fun, but also to open new doors, unlock new opportunities, and create those one-degree connections that can uncover new resources.
Mentorship: We will be mentoring social entrepreneurs that are already in the business sector supporting the cause. You’ll be asked to help by giving your personal hard won advice and insights to help them go further & faster.
Maverick Multiplier #3: CO-CREATE actionable new ideas and share resources to help solve for some of the most pressing challenges we’re facing right now. This is where we tap into the collective brainpower, resources, networks and capabilities to co-create something meaningful! This is also the spot where we will brainstorm ideas that you can take back and implement within your own business and beyond.
Oh, and your donation to the Impact Fund will go towards the project we collaborate on here!

We can’t even quite explain what will happen because it’s totally different every time… and that is part of the magic!
What you CAN expect ..is the Unexpected.
IMPACT MEGAmind #1:
The ‘BEE’ Better Business Challenge
April 30, 2021
12:30pm – 3:30pm ET
The Bees Need Us…And We Need The Bees.
Why Bees? Bees may appear to be tiny and unimportant, but to put it simply, the future of our food supply depends on them.
And as you may or may not know, Honeybee colonies are dying off at an average annual rate of 29.6% (or higher).
THERE’S ALSO A LOT WE CAN LEARN FROM THE BEES…
Anything from collaboration and purpose to leadership and communication.
And..What if Your Greatest Joy Pollinates the World?
What if your greatest joy is the barometer for letting you know exactly what you’re meant to be doing?
Joy is not simply what makes you happy for a fleeting moment, but what makes you feel truly fulfilled and fully utilized.
Your joy will naturally pollinate the world with new ideas, ventures and projects that you may find yourself just “stumbling into” …all by just doing what brings you the greatest JOY. We also call this kind of work “purposeful play.”
IMPACT MEGAmind #2:
The Grow More ‘Trees’ Business Challenge
Why Trees? Trees are our perfect ally. Not only do they give off oxygen so that we can breathe, but they also improve the quality of our air by filtering harmful dust and pollutants such as ozone, carbon monoxide, and sulfur dioxide. Trees also provide food, protection, and shelter for many species of wildlife.
Why now?: More than 60% of all forests worldwide have been cut over the last 50 years and forests are diminishing by millions of acres every year.
IMPACT MEGAmind #3:
The ‘Sea’ Differently Business Challenge
Why the Ocean? Our Ocean is essential to life on earth. All of us, directly and indirectly, depend on the Ocean- from the air we breathe and the food we eat, to jobs and livelihood.
If we take care of the ocean, the ocean will take care of us.
Although the Ocean covers 70% of the Earth’s surface, it is still woefully under protected with only 2% strongly protected from destructive or extractive activities.
Science is saying that we need to do much more to ensure a healthy Ocean for future generations.
Why Now? Strong protection of at least 30% of the Ocean is needed by 2030 (check out Ocean Unite’s 30X30 Initiative ) to build the resilience of ocean life to adapt to climate change and buffer it from various other threats.
Join us as we come together to supercharge ocean protection and make 30×30 a reality through action on the water, on the streets and in the corridors of power.
Who are Mavericks?
“On paper,” Maverick members are 21st century business leaders who collide at the intersection of bold business initiatives, joy and greater meaning. They are successful entrepreneurs with industry-leading companies ranging from $1M to over $100M+ in annual sales and are lighthouses across 91+ industries and marketplaces.
But, more than what they’ve done, it’s about who they are. We’re looking for a certain type of individual. We call it Maverick DNA. At the core, Mavericks are committed to continuous business and personal growth, creating an impact in the world and having a lot of fun in the process.
