We believe in the power of business to change lives.

We believe in fun, positivity, health, honesty, environmentalism, transparency and quite simply being brilliant at what we do.

We contribute 100% of our profits to the causes closest to our hearts, because we believe in practicing what we preach.

Y is a symbol, representing the journey of business and the convergence of people, purpose & prosperity to serve the beneficiaries at its centre.

Y is a constant reminder to connect with our purpose and ask why. Because business is personal.

Show up with your head, your heart and your moral compass every day and just get it done. 

We are Y.  

 
  I believe conscious consumerism is a powerful solution to the challenges facing individuals, communities and our planet.   I am an optimist, but I acknowledge the world is dealing with some pretty heavy issues.  I often have discussions with people who feel powerless in the face of increasingly disturbing and tragic world news. The exposure we have to world poverty, environmental devastation and animal brutality alone can destabilise our mental health, or worse, lead us to look away and do nothing.  But I believe that every day we have a choice. We can decide that we are not able to effect change, or we can see our abilities in everything we do. What we buy, where we eat and how we live and give are all incredibly vital to creating a sustainable planet where individuals thrive and all lives are treated as equal.   Business magnifies and scales that power and I am so excited to see what changes can be affected when we combine this with purposeful direction.   Catherine Wyatt is a Chartered Accountant with over a decade’s experience working in corporate with privately owned businesses. She started consulting with social enterprises in 2016, focusing on the strategic partnerships that can be made with businesses for combined benefits and superior impact.

  I believe business is our most powerful tool to create immense positive change in our lives and the world.    Every individual has the power to make a big & meaningful difference, and together, we can ensure this world is stronger, cleaner & safer for generations to come.   The concept of Shared Value pushes us to redefine our understanding of business and see that financial return and positive societal impact do not need to counteract. Rather, they should be bound together as the only way to do business.  I believe in the power of The One Thing.  Awareness and understanding of our purpose is crucial to the enjoyment of life, but at times it can be overwhelming. Understanding that incremental steps & changes will lead you to big impact is liberating.    Equality, opportunity and happiness are the greatest gifts in life and I'm driven to embed these values into business as usual.    Jess Colgan is a Chartered Accountant with over a decade's experience working both in corporate with private business clients, and directly within mid sized family owned businesses. She now partners with all levels of business committed to creating financially sustainable business models that create positive social impact.
