Crisis 3xE final networking event
Thursday, 29 March 2012 from 10:30 to 15:00 (BST)
Leeds, United Kingdom
Over the past 4 years’ the Crisis 3xE Network has built a unique network of social enterprises of all shapes and sizes, working hard to make a difference to vulnerable people’s lives. We understand the benefits of networking and peer-to-peer support, and according to the preliminary findings of our evaluation it is clear that you all do too.
To encourage and support the development of peer-to-peer collaboration across our network (before our closure in April), we are holding 3 networking events. Each event will target several regions and will give our members the time and space to meet other social enterprises and explore how, by working together, you can overcome similar barriers and create opportunities for your businesses and the sector to grow.
There will also be support bodies and experts to help find answers to burning questions. However the main strength in the day will be from the range of expertise from the social entrepreneurs within the room. The more people that come to the event the greater will be the opportunities for networking; so please join us.
This is a loose agenda for the day. We would like to maximise the time for best practice sharing and networking.
