You’re a natural – the students were engaged throughout, and got a good overview of the social enterprise sector and how it relates to the wider policy and economy environment – as well as the practicalities of running a social enterprise.

What an inspiring enterprise! The workshop gave our leadership team much-needed headspace, and made us ask ourselves useful questions about our business model.
