SENS – Introduction to Social Enterprise Training Day

We have been working to support the development of Social Enterprise in Somerset for many years but more recently this work has been championed through Grassroots which has now become the Social Enterprise Network Somerset or SENS.  We are therefore delighted to be working with the SENS partners to provide this training day in Wells on the 14th October which is Free to attend for merging social enterprises based in Somerset.  For more details follow the ISEW prog link and scroll down.

Our thanks go to the presenters who ran workshops at this morning’s event organised by Exeter Sustainable Business Network and ESSENCE (Social Enterprise Network) at St James’s Park – home to Exeter City Supporters’ Trust on of our Social Enterprise Members.  Missing from this shot is Alastair Banks from Optix Solutions who ran a great session on marketing.  You can see him in the post on here!

Women Led Enterprise – The Main Event

Please see the following extract from the Community Council of Devon’s first e-bulletin for the Women Led Enterprise programme.

We are now geared up for a major gathering of enterprising women from across rural Devon and Somerset, which will take place on 11th November 2014 in Cullompton.

On the day there will be:

  • A variety of interactive workshops
  • Inspiring guest speakers
  • Q&A with a panel of experts
  • ‘Open Space’ sessions where you set the agenda
  • A market place showcasing local women’s business

This is a not to be missed one-off event which combines a brilliant networking opportunity, market stalls, training workshops and much more.
