On Sept 10th, we held a gathering for the network on the topic of “How can we make social value part of everything that we do?”. Steve Murrells, the CEO of the Coop group kicked off the event with an inspiring speech, followed by a Q&A with Hazel Blears (former MP and architect of government policy on social value). There were then very lively discussions and further short presentations from organisations about one aspect of their work to increase social value. 119 people attended from a very wide range of organisations and the feedback was extremely positive.
The slides from the presentations can be downloaded Presentation slide deck for the Event v4.0.
