He will explore the implementation of interventions by highlighting what works and what does not in sustainable income generation for those in poverty as well as health behaviour and charitable giving. He will ask us to think about the challenges and opportunities in scaling-up successful ideas while stimulating students, Faculty, and leaders to think about global poverty solutions.
