PANEL

Enabling Growth with Sustainability & Philanthropy

As the world moves toward a sustainable, shared, and purpose-driven economy, companies and organizations seek to grow in a way that makes positive impact. Executives and Board Members will join this expert group to share ways to enable growth through sustainability and philanthropy, help to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs), and collaborate through partnerships and knowledge-sharing.

Here is the Deal:
There are a whole lot of people that want to know what you know. Rather than a lame survey or real-time meetings, this engagement will be open 24/7... at your convenience. You engage when you feel like it, once a week or more often, you have fun meeting new people also hot on the topic, you earn points that you convert to cash (not change-your-life money, but fist-pump-money). Expect to spend about 15 minutes per week, but like potato chips, it's tempting to do much more.

What is Currnt:
We are about connecting companies directly with the perspective they seek first hand, fast learning where everybody gets smarter and stays fresh on fast change. Some call us the "LinkedIn for introverts" (chortle) because there is no self-promotion, everything is curated by professional moderators.

Why You:
We have some pretty smart bots that found your profile on the web and thought you might be interested. If you are a continual learner, you will love the experience. If you like getting recognized by your peers for your “spoon-bending” insights, you will like the points. If you like meeting new people from around the world that share your interest, you will love the knowledge networking. If you are like us and like staying fresh and relevant on topics that are re-shaping our world, then welcome to Currnt.

FAQ
  • add remove What is Currnt?
    Currnt is a “Knowledge Networking” platform where companies and professionals come to stay relevant on the latest advances in their industries in the face of the increasing pace of change. Companies sponsor panels to learn about where markets are headed or how to leverage new capabilities. Professionals join to demonstrate and develop their passions with equal caliber peers in expert-only facilitated online engagements. On Currnt, we take our passions seriously and ourselves lightly. See our Community Guidelines, to learn more of the rules of the road, here are some highlights

    • Be yourself. The authenticity of Currnt begins with the passion of people.
    • Be respectful. This applies to every person, at all times.
    • Be inclusive. Tolerate, welcome, and consider diverse people and perspectives.
    • Build empathy and understanding. Engage in debates that are in good faith.
    • Foster meaningful and genuine connections. This is what Currnt is all about.
    • Do not plagiarize or fail to cite other’s ideas.
    • Don’t game the points by trying to coordinate intentional recognition.
  • add remove Why should I apply?
    Professionals join Currnt because they want to remain relevant on subjects they’re passionate about and subjects that are shaping the future of their industry. They also:

    • Engage and connect with equal caliber peers in their industry
    • Learn and enhance their knowledge
    • Get recognized and rewarded for providing their inputs and thought-leadership
    • Earn honorarium payments and/or recognition points that are redeemable for cash. Learn more here.
  • add remove Are there specific times I need to participate?
    There are no set times for calls or meetings. Participation is 100% online on the Currnt platform and engagement between the all expert panelists is asynchronous in written form. In a Sprint, expect to engage daily, however in a Stream, expect to engage a couple times a week or more as inspired.

  • add remove How do KnowledgeStreams and DesignSprints work?
    Streams are ongoing online engagements for exploration or working iteratively with a panel, and Sprints are on-demand engagement to get to actionable insights quickly. Both are facilitated and are always-on for participants to engage at-convenience. The conversations are segmented into Themes which are subtopics which are like chapters in a book. In a 4 Day Sprint, Themes are 24 hours, whereas a Theme in a Stream is every two week. Throughout the discussion, the facilitator highlights and categorizes the “key takeaways” to be voted and distilled into a summary report. It’s also common that other pieces of content (whitepapers, blogs, podcasts) are also prepared from the distilled insights.

  • add remove I’ve applied. Now what?
    Your application will be internally reviewed in the following 24-48hrs and screened for any conflict of interest, and general fit. Next your application will be shortlisted for the sponsor to accept, bookmark or reject. You will receive a notification each step of the way, but expect this may take a couple of days, or even weeks if the panel is new. Nevertheless, in addition to the notifications, you can always go back to the Apply page to view the status of your application.

  • add remove I’ve been selected. What am I expected to do when selected?
    Once you receive your Welcome Email, please RSVP by clicking the link in the notification. You can also gain access to the panel through your Canvas: just click ‘My Canvas’ at the top of the page. Finally, once you have RSVP’d by logging into the panel, there is often a Welcome Tab where you can introduce yourself to the other panelists. If it’s a new panel, the first Theme will launch in a few days, if it’s an ongoing panel just jump right in by reacting to the question or to what the other panelists had to say.

  • add remove If I have other questions or issues, what should I do?
    Please contact support to answer any other questions or troubleshoot any issues via email or chat.
