Social Entrepreneur Speakers

Social Entrepreneurship is a person or group that develops, helps to fund, and implement solutions to social, cultural, or environmental issues. They are individuals that are willing to take on the risk and effort to create positive changes in society through their initiatives. 

We are very lucky to work with a few social entrepreneurs and if you looking for a speaker on the subject these are a few we would recommend

Social Bite now employs over 75 people, many from a background of homelessness; and gives out over 200,000 items of food each year to homeless and vulnerable people through a network of cafes across the UK.
