Amazing things can be done with toilet paper and beer! Who Gives A Crap and Shebeen are the brainchildren of Simon Griffiths that are transforming Melbourne. Both ventures have grown with quirky branding and unique approaches to funding. Most importantly, they have contributed to innovative and scalable poverty alleviation in Africa and Asia. Simon will share what it has taken to build successful businesses that tap into the 'sexier' side of responsible consumption.
