*Please note a change of venue - the talk is now taking place at Lupton Fawcett Lee and Priestley - on East Parade in the centre of Leeds.*
Join leading social entrepreneur Colin Crooks to hear him talk about his new book - How To Make A Million Jobs - A Charter For Social Enterprise. In his book, Colin makes some startling revelations about the true scale and dispiriting depth of the worklessness problem in the UK.
He also explains why so many employment schemes have failed to address the issue, and, how, over a number of decades we have created what he calls a "let-down" generation.
But he isn't daunted by the problem - instead he outlines a solution - and a way to break down that 1 million figure - 1000 jobs in 1000 of our most deprived communities.
Intrigued? Please join us to hear more from Colin, and to explore with other people in Leeds how we might go about making a million jobs - including a few thousand in Leeds.
Please arrive any time after 530pm for tea and coffee, for a start at 6pm - we'll be finished by 8pm at the latest.
