Event description

Description

At Social Enterprise Network, we're all about building a social economy through better business.

As part of that, on 24th March, Social Enterprise Network is joining forces with the Liverpool-based think tank Incubator of Change to be hosting the first of our new Social Innovation Forum conferences at the Liverpool Medical Institute on Mount Pleasant, L3. Starting at 9am and going through until 1pm, there will be a chance to hear twelve short talks on different aspects of the social economy - from women's involvement in the Northern Powerhouse, to innovative solutions to homelessness; from the economic theories behind social enterprise, to the data-driven future of the urban landscape.

We're bringing together leading local figures from the worlds of business, academia, politics and charity for a half-day of lightning talks on the ideas they think can help to improve the world around us.

We're keeping the talks short (all will be between ten and fifteen minutes in length) so we can hear from as many people as possible.

Ticket prices are being kept deliberately low and are priced at just £25 each to cover costs, with discounts for unwaged attendees. SEN members can apply for one free ticket per organisation by emailing info@sen.org.uk.

Our guest speakers on the day are as follows:

Michelle Langan, Papercup Project, on Preventing homelessness and rough sleeping

Lol Baker, LJMU Fab Lab, on Cybernetics in the city, and the part LJMU can play

Tabitha Morton, Metro Mayor candidate for the Women's Equality Party

Matt Thompson, Heseltine Institute, on Urban social economy from an academic perspective

Jon Davies, Deep Hedonia arts agency, on How to help social entrepreneurs better engage with the arts

Lynne Robertson, Santander Startup Incubator, on Start-up Liverpool, and the growth of city business

Steve Rotheram, Metro Mayor candidate for the Labour Party

Cahal Moran, Post-Crash Economics Society, on Social economy teaching and pluralism in economics

Kate Stewart, We Make Places, on The psychology of making in the social enterprise sector

Sally Anne Watkiss, Homebaked Bakery, on Community trading and the Homebaked Bakery

Tracy Fishwick, People's Powerhouse, on The need for the People's Powerhouse conference
