    What does it take to create impact at scale?

    What does it take to create impact at scale?

    At SVA’s summit into impact at scale, three leaders in social change in Australia and the UK shared their insights into what it takes to create impact at scale?
    The speakers are:
    - Matthew Taylor, Chief Executive Officer, UK National Health Service Confederation 
    - Kristy Muir, Chief Executive Officer, Paul Ramsay Foundation 
    - Cindy Reese Mitchell, Program Director for Indigenous Women’s Entrepreneurship, Good Return.
    Their responses covered a range of experience from dealing with large systemic changes in UK’s National Health Service, through place-based community projects across Australia, to working with an Indigenous women’s entrepreneurship program in the Kimberleys which provides takeaways for people working with First Nations people.
