In July 2014, the British Council invited Nobel laureate Professor Muhammad Yunus to Myanmar speak with leaders from government, business and civil society (including social enterprise and NGO professionals) about maximizing the social impact of business in the country. Prof Yunus , the ‘father of micro-finance’, has pioneered the concept of social business and was awarded the Nobel peace prize for his efforts in 2006. Since then he has worked tirelessly to encourage people all over the world to adopt the approach. In Myanmar, Yunus challenged business leaders to think more deeply about the underlying motivation for their business activity and urged government leaders to ‘help young people discover their own worth and unleash their creative power,’ adding, ‘We can create a world where not a single person will be poor.’ This video captures the highlights of his ground-breaking visit
