Lecture to focus on social enterprise as a positive way to do business

The theory, practice and positive benefits to us all of social enterprises will be explored at the next School of Business Dean’s Lecture on 10 May.

The lecture, Social Enterprise - Business for Good, which will be delivered by Dorothy Francis MBE, the CEO of the Co-operative and Social Enterprise Agency (CASE), will explore how social enterprises move from theory to practice and will illustrate how social businesses bring about positive, tangible change in local, national and international settings.

The free lecture which is open to the public is part of the Dean’s Lecture Series hosted by Professor Zoe Radnor, Dean at the School of Business, and features invited speakers who are regarded as leaders in the areas of management, economics, finance and business. Each lecture also features an expert respondent from the academic team, an opportunity for questions from the audience and further discussion at the post-lecture reception. It will take place in Lecture Theatre 2 of the Ken Edwards Building on 10 May from 5.30pm. Places can be limited and pre-registration is required, book your place here.

The lecture is part of the Responsibility and Sustainability in Business Practice events series being organised by the School of Business, from 8 to 11 May 2017. The events aim to explore contemporary themes in business practice, community development and sustainability.
