Mark Ellerby has started a new Social Enterprise Mentors networking initiative. It revolves around the idea that social enterprises can gain a lot — and be each other’s mentors — by informal networking, information exchange and sharing experiences. The second networking event — described as a “like really good coffee break at a conference but without all the boring conference stuff” — takes place at the Urban Coffee Company (Church St, Birmingham) from 10.00–11.30am on Thursday 18th March.
Check SEM’s website for video and pictures from the first event — and lots of enthusiasm and positive comments from people who were there.
In meeting at the Urban Coffee Co. SEM is also supporting a new, independent city centre coffee house, started by two refugees from the IT industry.
