ESSENCE is pleased to announce the FREE workshop: Demystifying Social Investment

Any organisation looking at how to diversify their income streams and how to become sustainable long-term will have to engage with the topic of social investment at some point (and in our opinion the sooner, the better). 

At this workshop we will look into the mysteries of social investment: what is it? What opportunities are there? What are the associated risks? We’ll explore different types of social investment and the implications for your organisation.

For more background information on this important topic, we recommend this page of the Good Finance website, the ‘one stop shop’ when it comes to social investment in the UK. 

This workshop is part of the SIMPL project and facilitated by the knowledgeable Gareth Hart from Iridescent Ideas. It is SIMPL’s mission to increase the awareness and knowledge of social investment, without saying social investment is the solution to everything. As part of SIMPL's delivery in Exeter, ESSENCE also offers the FREE workshop (Demonstrating Social Impact) on 26h April 2019. 

This workshop is designed to cater to both ‘beginner’ and more advanced levels of knowledge about Social Investment.

DATE: Friday 22nd March 2019

TIME: 10.45am – 1.45pm

LOCATION: Conference Room @ Colab Exeter

This is a FREE event. 

Please provide your own lunch, coffee and tea will be provided.
