How to pursue a career in social enterprise
Thursday, July 7, 2011 at 6:30 PM (BST)
London, United Kingdom
We’ve got a really exciting evening planned for July’s Esc Wednesday.
NB: In the spirit of doing something different this Esc Wed is being held on a Thursday!
DETAILS: THURSDAY 7th JULY – VENUE CORRECTION - THE YORKSHIRE GRAY PUB (UPSTAIRS)
Bar: 6.30 pm | Talk: 7.30 pm
Our special guest is Tom Rippin.
What he decided to do instead was to start a really exciting social enterprise leadership programme called On Purpose. On Purpose provides a structured way for the next generation of high-fliers to get into the growing social enterprise sector.
Tom will be accompanied by an On Purpose Fellow: Harriet Barclay who, after 5 years at AMV BBDO, embarked on the On Purpose programme last year and is now Head of O2 Learn and current On Purpose Associates: Stephanie Denamps and Ann Walker (ex P&G and Booz & Company).
5 reasons to come…
- You've been trying to find a route into social enterprise and have been getting frustrated with the lack meaningful job opportunities
- You are interested in starting your own social enterprise and would like to hear Tom's own escape and start-up story
- You want to get into social enterprise but fear that means waving goodbye to any training and development opportunities you currently have
- You're interested in social enterprise but are not sure which bit is most interesting and you'd like to try a few things out first
- You'd love to meet some people who have and are transitioning into social enterprise
Please join us:
We will be meeting at The Yorkshire Gray – on the evening of Thursday 7th July.
Tom, Harriet, Stephanie and Ann will be giving a short talk before we open it up to the room for a Q&A.
The bar will open at 18.00 and the talk will start at 19.30 and go on for about an hour.
The bar opens 6 pm. Please come for a drink and a chat.

Commuting to our corporate jobs, wondering how to drive our career in directions that matter to us.
