E3M Social Business Seminar

Social business: communicating the difference and influencing public service markets

The time is now for social enterprises to communicate their difference in order to make sure that they have not only a continued role, but a greater one in delivering public services.

This one-day seminar is packed with professional communications and public affairs expertise as well as peer insights to help social enterprises do just that with the new national and local administrations.

The event will:

  • examine the context of the new Conservative Government and the continuing role for social businesses in public service delivery
  • explore opportunities for influence and the mechanisms to do so
  • look at key messages (i) to differentiate social purpose businesses from other providers and (ii) to bust the myth that they can’t operate at scale

It will be an event which brings you expertise in this field, practical case studies from other social businesses as well as audience participation.
