Corporate Social Responsibilty just got interesting! Every year thousands of hours are spent watching the clock count down on a boring Friday afternoon. But... what if you could turn those Fridays into fun times with colleagues while also saving the world ? That is all possible, when you become part of the Social Friday. It all started in North Macedonia, but SOCIAL FRIDAY is on a mission: to change the world one Friday at a time. Find out how: FikretZendeli explains how business can meet community in this fascinating TEDxZurich talk.
Born in Macedonia, FikretZendeli moved to Switzerland at the age of 10, where he graduated as an engineering-technician, completed postgraduate studies in business administration and received a DAS in psychology from ipsyt (spin off Uni Zurich). Being no stranger to hard work, he moved back to Macedonia in 2010 with nothing but 2 PC’s and Golf to found Breon, a construction office. Raised in the spirit of altruism, Fikret later also founded the SocialFriday initiative, to raise social awareness for a sustainable society established as an integral part of the economic agenda. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at ted.com/tedx
