SPACES LIMITED – ENROL TODAY
Whether it is business disruption, staffing issues, a change in customer needs or a host of other issues affecting your social enterprise, Selnet understands that you are facing some of the biggest business challenges right now.
In some cases, it’s a challenge just to make ends meet. We’re here to help.
Selnet is excited to be rolling out a national networking programme for social enterprise leaders in Lancashire that want to maintain and develop their organisation for future success.
Start Planning For The Future
Starting in early 2021, this intensive programme will take 18 hours over 8 weeks and is government funded so no cost to the businesses. Together social enterprise leaders in Lancashire will learn from each other’s shared experiences as a Peer Network.
Each group will consist of 8-to-10 business leaders led by an experienced facilitator.
In addition, there’s bespoke business support for your organisation and a series of masterclasses to learn new skills.
The Programme Will Help You:
- Overcome business challenges and act on new opportunities
- Build a trusted network of connections for support now and in the future
- Improve long-term personal and business performance
- Consider ways to increase turnover and social impact
- Use the Peer Network to help overcome challenges or make changes in your social enterprise
You will not be placed in a group with any direct competitors, so you can openly share your expertise and benefit from others, without fear of compromising your competitive advantages.
This is not formal management or skills training it will have a personal development focus with flexible topics worked though with the help of a professional facilitator and in small groups of likeminded social enterprise leaders in a similar situation to you.
Wednesday mornings starting Wednesday 10th February then 24th Feb and 3rd 17th and 24th March (Additional project activity will be planned around your schedule)
Friday afternoons starting Friday 12th February then 26th Feb and 5th 19th and 26th March (Additional project activity will be planned around your schedule)
Who Is It For?
This support is for anyone working in the social enterprise sector in Lancashire. Leaders now – and leaders of the future.
The agenda is set by the group. The context is supporting each other to develop new ways of working and building knowledge and skills to expand your organisation’s impact.
Why Take Part?
Participating in a peer group can help you gain fresh perspectives, inspire new ideas and change habits of thinking. It can also help you form new contacts, build networks and gain valuable professional and personal support from a team of like-minded peers. The group is a place to try out new ideas before they are fully formed, and to share your difficulties as well as celebrate successes.
