Social Enterprise (SE) is the largest growing business model across Europe and with membership including John Lewis and Cafedirect, it is clear to see why. With this type of business, the profits from trading are reinvested within the organisation to further achieve its social aims or diverted towards a good cause.
Clearly, to be a good social entrepreneur you’ve to be passionate about what you do but you’ve also to have a handle on the business side of things and more importantly have the vision to plan the future. This strategic level is vital, especially with social enterprises as it ensures that the venture is sustainable.
Not every Social Entrepreneur comes from a corporate background and not every social enterprise Trustee has had experience of making the types of decisions that will affect an organisation’s acitivity for years to come.
To meet these challenges, the Thurrock Learning Shop is offering a free “Capacity Building for Social Enterprises and their Trustees” workshop on Friday 16th July. It an ideal opportunity for anybody involved with SE to start thinking about the future, to take stock of the present and to learn from the past.
Delivered by Andy Brady, Director of Social Enterprise East of England it’s also an opportunity to meet with other Social Entrepreneurs and share experiences.
