Get Set for Growth - An Introduction to Social Media

This workshop is focussed on the what, why, when and (most importantly) who, of social media. Our goal is to help you answer all the questions you’ve been too afraid to ask! Social media offers a lot of great opportunities for businesses but if you don’t have a strong plan in place, it can also take up a lot of precious time, without delivering the right results. We’ll help you consider the value that social media can offer to your business, put you on a path to better align your activities with your business goals and show you how to reach your customers more effectively through the power of social. 

In this session we cover:

§  What platform will be most effective for you
§  What role social media should and can play for your business
§  Who you’re talking to and what they’re interested in
§  Planning your time
§  Measuring return on investment

HCED - An introduction to Social Enterprise 

This workshop will be an introduction to social enterprise business models, examining new ways to do business that achieve a social and/or environmental purpose, on an individual, community or global level. Social enterprises generate most of their income through trade, not funding, by selling goods or services in the open market, and have clear rules on how profits are reinvested into their social mission. 

The workshop will look at different organisational structures and legal models, using real-life examples of best practice in doing business for good. The workshop will be led by Dominic Ellison, CEO of Hackney Co-operative Developments, a Hackney-based social enterprise that has been trading for over 30 years, delivers governance and business development support to all forms of social enterprise and was winner of this year’s Mayor of Hackney Business Award for Best Overall Contribution to the Borough.
