(3BLMedia/theCSRfeed) November 1, 2010 - One of the world's leading experts on measuring social impact, Jason Saul is often asked by corporate clients to measure the business results of their social and philanthropic programs. During the past five years, he has often found himself in the uncomfortable position of having to tell clients that their programs generated no real business impact, largely because they were never designed to do so! Saul began researching the social strategies companies were using that produced the best and most direct business results – these are documented in his latest book, "Social Innovation, Inc." which identifies how corporations can make social change work for their business.

Join us as Saul reveals five successful paths to social innovation that can create revenues through submarket products and services; open markets through backdoor channels; build emotional bonds with customers; develop new pipelines for talent; and influence policy through reverse lobbying.
