Elevate: The Outcome
Over a period of 7 years (6 series of events), Podiem has succeeded in securing sponsorship, world-class speakers and sizeable audiences. Almost 2000 people have attended an SEMB event and widespread coverage has been secured across a range of media. Speakers have included Dr John Bird MBE, Sean Gallagher, Brian Tannerhill MBE, Michael Pyner and Professor Fraser Doherty OBE. Qualitative and quantitative evaluation has been consistently outstanding.
The Social Enterprise Means Business masterclasses have played a pivotal role in promoting the concept, value and realities of social business.
