Future Business: Rethinking Social Entrepreneurialism
Save event

Colin Crooks, CEO of Tree Shepherd and author of How to Make a Million Jobs - A Charter for Social Enterprise will talk on the potential for social enterprise to influence policy and change lives. 

Colin will draw on his experience as founder and CEO of Green Works, the UK's first office furniture recycling social enterprise which employed people furthest from the job market including ex-offenders and homeless people. His current venture, Tree Shepherd, supports social enterprise development in some of the UK's most marginalised communities. 

This is one of a series of Future Business events designed to get us all thinking about social entrepreneurship and inspire conversation, reflection and action. 

The event is delivered by Plymouth Social Enterprise Network in partnership with Plymouth University's Futures Entrepreneurship Centre and Plymouth City Council. 

Location: Mast House, Plymouth University, Plymouth.

Free event but booking is required. Book a place (Eventbrite page)
