The Unicorns Podcast connects you to some of the best and brightest founders, CEOs, executives, business owners, innovators, entrepreneurs and inspiring leaders who make things happen and inspire others.
Host Justin Kelly, former broadcast journalist and PR veteran, chats with leaders from across Australia and internationally on business strategy; what it takes to build a successful company; how to overcome challenges, and advice for those on a similar journey.
In this episode, Justin talks to Chris Christofi, CEO and founder of Reventon Group and Veki Brdjanin, co-founder of The Move.
The annual Vinnies CEO Sleepout is on 22 June this year, where hundreds of CEOs from across the country will be taking part. The aim is to raise millions of dollars for the homelessness services that Vinnies provides every year. Every night 122,000 people experience homelessness in Australia.
Chris will be taking part in his sixth Sleepout, having raised over $500,000 over the years to help the homeless. This will be Veki’s first CEO Sleepout.
As part of the kick-off to this year’s fundraising drive, there’s a huge charity event on in Melbourne this Friday. The event is called Lead with Kindness and 250 people are expected to attend to dig deep for the homeless and hopefully raise $100,000 in one night.
