Event description

Description

We are delighted to announce that the National Social Value Conference 2018 is being held on 20-21st November, in Manchester.

This year the National Social Value Conference will have as its central theme ‘Inspiring Leadership’ and builds on the great success of the 2017 Conference when we hosted over 250 people and a number of eminent speakers including Andy Street, the Mayor of West Midlands Combined Authority and launched the National TOMs Framework for social value measurement that has been downloaded by over 1500 organisations as far afield as Australia and New Zealand.

Social Value Awards 18'

We are inviting you to submit your project case study to the Social Value Awards 2018! The SVAs 18' will be judged by an independent expert panel. The awards will be held at the end of day 1 at the National Social Value Conference on the 20th-21st November in Manchester.

The selected winners will have their case studies featured online, showcased in the conference brochure and will also have the opportunity to present at the Social Value awards on the evening of day 1 of the conference.

Day 1 - Organised by The Social Value Portal

Speakers
This year our speakers include the Mayor of Greater Manchester Combined Authority, Andy Burnham, the Rt. Honourable Hazel Blears, Claire Dove OBE, the Crown Representative for VCSEs and the Head of Policy from the Federation of Small Businesses, Martin McTague.

The conference will also see the launch of the FSB Toolkit for Engaging SMEs aimed at getting more small businesses working with the public sector, updates to the National TOMs including Sector plug ins for Real Estate and Health, the launch of the LGA Good Practice Guide for SV Performance and Contract Management, as well as a review of how the National TOMs map onto the UN’s Global Goals for Sustainable Development.

Deep Dive Sessions
We will also have a range of deep dive sessions including sessions on cross-sector collaboration chaired by Scape Group, a detailed examination of how social value can be integrated into the planning system to unlock over £15bn worth of additional value, a look at how social value can be successfully integrated into the commissioning and planning process as well as a session on how Manchester has developed a leading solution to social value including the launch of their new Social Value Policy.

The day will be closed by Rod Schwartz, the CEO of ClearlySo and Impact Investor who will speak about the way that Social Value in the guise of the Global Goals is changing the world on investment.

Following the end of the day, we will be hosting drinks and a buffet dinner alongside short presentations by each of our award winners.

There will, of course, be a few additional surprises along the way including a range of stands from our sponsors and of course networking throughout.


Day 2 - Organised by Social Value UK

Building a movement, bringing sectors together

Do you share our vision for a world where people’s lives are put at the heart of decision making?

Join our movement to change the way the world understands, accounts for and creates value. It is time for social value to be integrated with financial value. The movement is picking up pace, but we need your involvement.

This is our annual Members Exchange, the opportunity for people from all sectors who believe that a better future must include increased accountability, to assemble in one room. It’s time for companies to put changes to people’s lives and their environmental impact on an equal footing with their financial profit.

Be part of an exciting participatory day of discussions, learning and sharing of best practice. Take this opportunity to shape the movement and join the sessions on how you can get involved, no matter where you are on your social value journey.

  • Hear from our new CEO Ben Carpenter, as he sets out his ambition for our community, at an exciting moment when the profile of social value has never been higher as it is recognised on the agenda of government. You can join our movement to help move social value up the political agenda.

  • Social Value UK are led and governed by our members. Whether you work for a corporate, a not-for-profit, in procurement or for a local council, do not miss this opportunity to learn practical new skills to embed the social value principles in your work. You will be able to share your experiences and learn from the leading practitioners.

  • You will be able to set the agenda and include what is most important to you. As a membership body owned and led by our members we will be offering the chance to participate in the day by hosting solutions focused roundtables and workshops to address the challenges you are facing. Learn from your peers and co-create solutions under the themes of ‘data and techniques’, ‘responsiveness and design’, ‘transparency and verification’.


The full programme will be announced soon.

Would you like to contribute by hosting a roundtable or workshop? Complete this form.

And if that’s not enough, there will be a competition kicked off by Ben during his opening remarks. The prize winner will be announced at the networking drinks, so make sure you join us!
