Join us for an enterprise masterclass workshop in partnership with IEWM
The School for Social Entrepreneurs in the Midlands has partnered with Improvement & Efficiency West Midlands (IEWM) to deliver the first in their Expert Insights events, an enterprise masterclass workshop.
IEWM ‘Expert Insights: Enterprise’ will bring together a mix of industry experts, entrepreneurs, and local authority officers to look at how we can shape alternative models of service delivery focused on ‘people supporting people’ and encourage enterprise, both within communities and their local authorities.
When Michael Young founded the School for Social Entrepreneurs (SSE) 21 years ago, he believed that ‘Everybody had the capacity to be remarkable’ but they often needed help in discovering their potential. This belief has informed our approach since the beginning and still does today. We believe that Social Entrepreneurs alone can’t provide all of the answers to today’s social, environmental or economic challenges, and so the opportunity to learn from our peers, to challenge one another, and to work together is crucial factor in effecting real change in our society.
IEWM ‘Expert Insights: Enterprise’ aims to bring together these ideas to help you find out how we can use entrepreneurial leadership in the public sector, leverage existing but under-utilised community assets, and develop new, innovative ways of engaging with and delivering services to our local communities. Speakers include business growth strategist, entrepreneur, and founder of Cultiv8 solutions, Joel Blake OBE; Head of Strategy for Staffordshire County Council Andrew Donaldson; and SSE’s own Charles Rapson.
We will also be introducing our Intrapreneurship and Action Learning programmes in partnership with IEWM.
IEWM ‘Expert Insights: Enterprise’ takes place 1-4pm, Wednesday 21st March 2018 at the BVSC Centre for Voluntary Action in Birmingham. To secure your place, email Shelley Madley at IEWM on SMadley@westmidlandsiep.gov.uk.
