Action Learning Sets for StartUp Social Entrepreneurs
Thu 27 April 2017, 10:00 – 13:00 BST
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.
“When it is a dark period for much of the World, the kindness of connections means a lot.”
“I came away with a real buzz and a head full of ideas. I was totally energised to tackle my organisation’s challenges. My peers’ creative ideas and wisdom were invaluable. What a gift it was for me to be part of the Action Learning Set.”
There are two groups running for 3 facilitated sessions;
StartUps - For social enterprises in the first 3-years
Established - For social enterprises established for 3 years or more
This booking is for StartUp Social Entrepreneurs only. Details for the Established sets are here.
Participants will commit to all 3 sessions, be open-minded, solution focused, act upon the learning, work cooperatively and be respectful of the confidentiality of their peers.
The sessions will be facilitated by Emma Turner, Social Enterprise Network Manager at The Platform. Emma has been involved in supporting the social enterprise scene in the city since the launch of its first strategy in 2008 and is passionate about facilitating all that it needs to grow and thrive. www.theplatform.org.uk
