working call for innovative approaches
Social enterprise is experiencing a meteoric rise in interest and relevance in the Philippines and the rest of the world. It is an entirely new way of working, a way of creating a new sort of wealth and most of all, a way of changing people and the world. It is not an easy route and the conflicts between social goals and business, values and democratic working call for innovative approaches to planning, governing, selling and managing.
The British Council has invited Tommy Hutchinson, founder and CEO of I-Genius to conduct a 2-day workshop on starting a social enterprise. The first batch will start on 28-29 September and the second batch will start on 30 September to 01 October. The venue for both workshops is the Discovery Suites in Ortigas Center. The workshop aims to equip budding social entrepreneurs with information on getting started on their social enterprise venture by providing tips on business strategies and planning, marketing and communications including using new media in establishing networks plus raising finance.
