Book now for the first More Than Profit Network Meeting for social enterprises in Kirklees.
In partnership with Kirklees Council, University of Huddersfield, Social Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber, Local Services 2 You, and hosted by Ashbrow Partnering Together.
Join us on 5th June at Northfield Hall in Huddersfield for a breakfast network meeting following up on the Growing Social Enterprise in Kirklees Conference that we held in March.
At this meeting, our social enterprise partnership will be feeding back on what we learnt from you at the conference and will be following up on some of the key themes to emerge. In particular, we’ll be looking at and providing information on the support that’s available locally and nationally, including details from the network partners about the the support, services and events they can offer. Plus, we’ll be discussing further the issues around how we describe ourselves, and we’ve asked Adam Waterman from Eden’s Forest to tell us more about why he thinks that ‘more than profit’ is an appropriate term.
Refreshments will be provided.
You can book now via Eventbrite.

There will be key note speakers from Social Enterprise Business, exhibitors, and ConverStations where you can discuss your issues, and get help from experts on things like accounting, social value, social media and leadership.
