Description

This is a joint event with the Entrepreneurship Club.

Social enterprise is more than charity and more exciting than plain business. Inspiring Scotland and the Acquiring Business 4 Good programme work between social enterprises and the private sector in a variety of ways. Come along for some fascinating talks, stimulating discussion and interesting debate on how Scotland does Big Society (and that has nothing to do with politics and everything to do with making an impact). If you are looking to start an enterprise or for a career that delivers impact as well as earning a salary you should consider the growing social enterprise world.

The speakers include:

Helen Chambers, Head of Strategy and Delivery at Inspiring Scotland
Karen Anderson, Programme Manager at Acquiring Business 4 Good
