ClearlySo Social Business Conference
SB conference 2009The countdown continues to the Clearlyso Social Business Conference. Held at LSO St Luke’s in London Old Street, this brings together a host of investors, entrepreneurs, suppliers and pioneers within the social enterprise sector. It’s a chance to network and gain some valuable inspiration from some of the biggest names in the social enterprise sector. 

This year’s theme is: ‘Back to basics – getting the fundamentals right’. As usual the event will consist of a number of top notch speakers delivering the very best advice, hints and tips.

We have an early bird discount available, so why not visit our site to find out more?

The big move
They say one of the most stressful experiences in life is moving house and if that’s true then we’ve got off lightly. Barring a few minor glitches, our move from Archway to Old Street passed off without too much drama.

This is quickly becoming a hive of social enterprise activity – so it’s great to be right in the centre of the action.

As well as a new location we also welcome a number of fresh faces here at ClearlySo. No sooner have we lost one excellent intern in the shape of Thomas Deniaud, who wings his way back to France, than we welcome the next generation. So it’s a big ClearlySo welcome to Beatrice Schofield and Whitney Mcwade who are just finding their way in the big wonderful world that is ClearlySo.

Best of the blogs
With ClearlySo founder Rodney Schwartz lobbing another hand grenade in the direction of the social enterprise industry it’s been another busy week on our blog. Here are some of the highlights:

  • Should social enterprises stop lobbying for government funding? Rodney Schwartz argues the time has come for our sector to stand on its own two feet
  • Generating lasting social good. How one company is seeking to radically increase the amount of money available for regeneration schemes
  • MPs back calls for an ethical stance on pensions

Featured social enterprise
Delving into the very depths of the alphabetical hinterland we take a closer look at community interescompany Zaytoun.

Founded in 2004 the aim of this fantastic organisation is to create a market in the UK for artisan Palestinian produce. In doing so it not only provides a much needed economic benefit for the region, but also highlights the story of the Palestinian people among British audiences. It has a number of stalls around the country on which it is possible to buy the produce it brings in. For more information, click here.

Featured term on the glossary: Carbon offsetting
The counter balancing of carbon emissions through the purchase of a carbon credit or offset from specialised intermediary companies who generate offsets by various means, such as planting trees or investing in renewable energy. Such intermediary companies have been a challenge to regulate as it is difficult to tell whether they are indeed offsetting effectively.
