Working for More than Profit
A social entrepreneur is someone working for social good through an enterprising activity. With social enterprises in the UK contributing nearly £25bn to our economy every year, and creating an average of 20 opportunities for work or training each, it's a very important sector.
Joining the ranks of the social entrepreneurs this year are 12 local change-makers graduating from the Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs. PEOPLE POWERED is a showcase event for these innovative and exceptional people.
With a keynote speech from Alastair Wilson, the CEO of the national School for Social Entrepreneurs about the importance of integrating business with social enterprise, as well as opportunities to hear all about our Graduates' own exciting projects, the evening promises to be both informative and inspirational.
Wine and refreshments will be provided, including canapés by Fresh Start - a social enterprise managed by one of our graduates, Cheryl Edwards.
The Hampshire School for Social Entrepreneurs provides training for people with enterprising ideas for social change by taking them through an action learning programme featuring practical sessions, visiting experts and field trips. We are now recruiting for the 2012 cohort - for more information visit
