Bob Thust “Consulting and Social Innovation”

September 14, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Bob Thust will be talking with students about his time in the consulting world and how he used his specific skill set for good. He will also be answering questions about his work, getting plugged in to social ventures, working at a large consulting firm, or anything else that students may have questions about.

Bob spent 15 years at Deloitte UK, first in the Audit & Advisory practice for not-for-profits, then as Director of Responsible Business and finally as Director of Corporate Brand & Marketing.  Amongst many activities, perhaps his proudest was the creation of Deloitte Social Innovation Pioneers which continues to provide exceptional direct advice, pro-bono support and partnership opportunities for social businesses in the UK and beyond.   Over the past eighteen months Bob has helped set up a new £150m Foundation, the Power to Change Trust, which supports local community-led social businesses through a combination of high profile cross-sector partnerships, direct grants and innovative social finance products.  Bob is still a strategic advisor to the Trust with a focus on corporate partnerships, social investment, operational management and governance.Bob is also senior advisor the Numbers for Good, one of the UK’s leading social finance intermediaries, with a focus on building their international corporate social investment business.Outside of these roles, Bob has recently co-founded a partnership, Practical Governance, which works with UK Foundations and social entrepreneurs to develop their governance and impact.
