Small start leads to big change

Social innovation can seem overwhelming at first, but it doesn’t have to be.

CQUni Master of Management for Engineers graduate, Bikesh Lal Shrestha believes it can be as simple as making small changes in our everyday life.

“Social innovation does not have to be a big invention. It could be a simple change in the way of doing something or approaching a situation that results in better outcomes.”

Originally from Nepal, Bikesh has always been passionate about helping people and solving social issues, and credits CQUni’s online iChange program for teaching him the basics of social innovation.
