Event: ‘Socialising the Commercial’ Panel Discussion, 6th December

[et_pb_section bb_built=”1″][et_pb_row][et_pb_column type=”4_4″][et_pb_text _builder_version=”3.2.2″]

BBRC’s Chief Executive Ed Rowberry will be chairing an Engine Shed Finance Briefing panel discussion, addressing the question:

“It’s easier to socialise the commercial than it is to commercialise the social” – Discuss

Is this just the Emperor’s new clothes? Charity in disguise, CSR on steroids or austerity via the back door?  Don’t businesses have enough to do anyway, why would they bother?

Engine Shed invites you to the fifth in its series of briefings aiming to inform and provoke on topics relevant to strengthening our eocsystem, with a panel of luminaries assessing not only the current state of funding for social enterprise but also how for-profit and not-for-profit enterprises can learn from each other.

A panel session with Q&A, followed by SETsquared Festive networking.

The Panel includes:

  • Ed Rowberry (Chair) – Chief Executive at Bristol & Bath Regional Capital CIC
  • Sue Turner – Chief Executive Officer at Quartet Community Foundation
  • Oliver Mochizuki – Fintech & Social Enterprise Innovator, co-founder & Ghost Rain Pictures
  • Karl Belizaire – International Agent of Change & Managing Director, Social Enterprise Works
  • Nick Davies – Founder, Neighbourly – a B-Corp

The aim of this event is to be informative, provocative, raise awareness, generate new ideas and thoughts, and help build the market – we hope you can attend and contribute to that thinking.

Join us at the Engine Shed on Tuesday 6th December from 16.30 – 17.30pm.  Book your ticket and find out more information on the Eventbrite page.
