EVOLVE- Professional advice and support for social enterprises
Wednesday, October 5, 2011 from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM (BST)
Glasgow, United Kingdom
Firstport is looking for social enterprises interested in gaining external advice and support from PwC volunteers for our upcoming EVOLVE event.
EVOLVE events are one day skill sharing sessions, matching social enterprises with volunteers from commercial businesses.
The sessions bring together social enterprises and a small group of corporate volunteers for one day to help develop the social enterprise. Working alongside the volunteers, you will take a strategic look at your business, identifying strengths, weaknesses and challenges ahead. They will also help you to put together an action plan that will give you greater confidence to drive your business forward. At the same time, you will help the volunteers to understand what social enterprise is all about by telling your story,inspiring them through the work that you do and the difference your organisation makes in the community.
We have worked with local SME's as well as corporate giants including PwC, Lloyds TSB, HBOS and Scottish Gas and we have received some fantastic feedback from participants.
“The team of volunteers were professional and interested. It is great to have involvement from somebody who is not as close to it as we are, and especially when those people are experts at business advice, focused on the bottom line. We thoroughly enjoyed our day with them. I hope they all got something useful out of it too.”
Interest in EVOLVE events is always high and sessions are often oversubscribed. Spaces are limited and registering your interest does not guarantee a place. Social enterprises will be chosen to participate in the event based on their suitability. If you are interested in attending, please complete our registration form by completing the registration form. Please be aware that at least two individuals from each social enterprise must attend.
If you wish to discuss any aspect further prior to registering, please contact either Kim or Maria on 0131 220 0511.
