This one day seminar is for social enterprises that trade in public service markets. It looks at five key aspects that will help you to change gear and take your business to the next level of growth.
Social enterprises need to be as alert and responsive to the markets and those who buy their services as they are to those who benefit from their services. A strategic focus on the process of winning new business cannot be overlooked by social enterprises if they are to sustain their business model and achieve lasting social change.
We start with a strategic look at growth (developing new markets or growing your pipeline) and understanding what public service commissioners want. We then move on to examine technical and operational ways to scale up i.e. by using different delivery models (consortia / SPVs) and examining finance mechanisms that are built into public sector contracts. Lastly, the seminar will explore how social enterprises can effectively compete with the private sector - large multi-nationals - via a panel session with experts and peers who are starting to do just that.
Using both peer-led case studies and input from business and legal experts this seminar aims to be both inspirational and practical in its content.
We have lined up some stimulating tales of growth and technical know-how from a range of our Members and Partners including:
Bates Wells Braithwaite
Big Society Capital
Care and Share Associates (CASA)
London Early Years Foundation (LEYF)
The Family Trust
The Wise Group
