Sarah Crawley has asked that the following is made widely known to clients, friends and supporters of ISE and BSSEC.
You will recall that last year Sarah spoke at and blogged from the Social Enterprise World Forum in New Zealand, as she did in 2009 from Australia. Many of you read those posts and were excited by the new ideas and trends she wrote about.
Well, there is exciting news just in about SEWF 2018. Read on for Sarah’s message…
The Social Enterprise World Forum returns to the UK after 10 years of travelling the world, one continent at a time. Edinburgh is this year’s host city and the event takes place between September 12th-15th.
The World Forum is an astonishing event and one that should not be missed by supporters of social enterprise. Thousands of practitioners from every industry, every continent, will be converging on Edinburgh to discuss, learn and share.
There are likely to be over 3,000 delegates and tickets sell out fast.
I have been lucky enough to arrange a 10% discount for a group attending from the West Midlands — it has to be registered separately through me. I’m also keen to have a West Midlands market place within the overall market place and am looking for social enterprises that have something to sell and promote suitable to local, national and international markets.
I am delighted to have been asked to be a speaker, which is an absolute privilege, however it might be great to splinter group for half a day where we explore a topical issue bringing in participants from other countries.
Please do get involved, it’s a wonderful opportunity to meet social entrepreneurs from across the world and learn loads! Let’s show everyone what a vibrant sector we have here in Birmingham and the West Midlands.
To find out more about SEWF 2018 in Edinburgh, how the discount package works and opportunities in the social enterprise marketplace please send mail to Sarah Crawley at iSE.
Thank you —
