Register NOW for inspiring speakers from the world of business, politics and across the social enterprise sector.

This event is hosted by Social Enterprise UK, in partnership with: Social Enterprise Scotland, Social Enterprise Northern Ireland, Wales Co-operative Centre.
There is a growing consensus that our economic system is failing – unable to deal with the climate emergency or the vast inequalities of health, wealth and opportunity which the pandemic brought so clearly to light. Big business continues to greenwash, the fight against racism continues and young people increasingly look to jobs which offer purpose not the pursuit of profit. It is against this backdrop that social enterprises are offering inspiring solutions to the challenges we face – creating jobs, empowering communities and protecting our planet.
Social Enterprise Futures will run over four weeks, featuring 12 sessions combining a mix of inspiring key-note speakers, practical advice for social enterprises and peer-to-peer learning and networking.
Last year speakers included former Prime Minister Gordon Brown, renowned economist Kate Raworth, Paul Polman the former CEO of Unilever and James Timpson alongside representatives from across the social enterprise community.
Each week will have a different theme with topics ranging from the climate emergency to building markets for social enterprises, with three 50 minute sessions for each theme followed by 30 minutes facilitated networking. The event will take place on the Digital Leaders Remo platform – an interactive platform allowing you to meet fellow attendees, share learning and make connections.
