At The Platform, Action Learning Sets are a powerful way for you to connect with and learn from other social enterprises. Regular facilitated sessions enable you to work in small groups to address your social enterprises’ challenges, solve real problems, take action and reflect on the results. Every session, each social enterprise will share a challenge they are facing. The group will listen and be guided to work collectively to find creative solutions based on their experience and offer support. You commit to take action between sessions and at the next session you will reflect on and learn from the process before sharing your next challenge. The Action Learning Set will help you to improve your problem-solving process, successfully navigate challenges with the help of your peers and enable you to develop a close network with a group of like-minded social entrepreneurs in the city.
“It did me a lot of good to share my fears, challenges and triumphs with a bunch of clever people doing the same thing as me. I got a lot from the conversations, the space to think and the mutual support.”
- Ruth Anslow, HiSbe
“Connecting with such an incredible and collaborative group of social entrepreneurs who are making a real difference in the world has given me new perspective, enabling me to refocus my vison and journey”
- Fiona Ras, The Platform
“The action learning sets were amazing at supporting our business’s growth. The group provided me with invaluable help, and I look forward to more sessions in the future.”
- Simon Cobb, Stoneham Bakehouse
