Our 2018 conference will be held at York St John University on 6th and 7th June.
With the world’s richest 1% now controlling over 80% of the wealth, there is clearly an unacceptable level of inequality in our society. This conference will challenge participants to consider how we can build a fairer society with social enterprise, using examples from across a range of sectors to stimulate discussions.
The programme is taking shape and we are excited to have secured a number of interesting speakers across the two days, including former Minister for Health Phil Hope, founder of Partners for Possibility (South Africa) Louise van Rhyn, leader of The World Fair Trade Organization and former Head of Future Business Initiative of Oxfam Erinch Sahan, and Nigel Kershaw of The Big Issue Group.
The conference will kick off at 4pm on 6th June for an afternoon of celebration, including our annual awards reception, followed by a BBQ dinner. 7th June will be a full day programme (9.30am – 3pm) , with a range of keynote sessions and workshops.
The event is being hosted by York St John University, as the headline sponsor, with Heidi Fisher (Make an Impact CIC) as supporting sponsor. There are a range of other sponsorship opportunities available, including drinks reception sponsorship and exhibition sponsorship.
Please get in touch if you are interested in being involved as a speaker or a sponsor.
