It’s been one of those weeks so, without any apology or naming names, I’m going to have a moan!
I’m fed up of finding examples of organisations that promote the idea of supporting local businesses or social enterprises or even the local flipping sheriff, who then go and do the exact opposite when it comes to web, print, park benches, video or anything else we supply and buy from a supplier outside the locality or outside the sector.
Come on folk, practice what you preach or, at the very least, give us a shot at the business!
As you can tell, we didn’t get the business I was hoping for from a certain “we are committed to supporting local business, believe in the value of social enterprise” outfit. Didn’t even get to sniff it. Straight out to a private sector organisation that’s not even close to being local.
There, I feel better for that and its not aimed at you – that is unless you are a social enterprise that’s just bought something from a private sector organisation in Outer Mongolia that a social enterprise just around the corner could supply!
Have a nice day
