What is the Social Enterprise Action Forum?

P2P held it’s inaugural Social Enterprise Action Forum at the Innovation Centre, University of the Sunshine Coast.  The purpose of the event was to explore the creation of businesses with a social and environmental conscience on the Sunshine Coast as a means of employment for people with a disability and others from marginalised groups.

When was the Forum?

The event was held on the 13th September 2017 with a follow-up event planned for early 2018.

Thank you so much for allowing me to attend the Forum. Such amazing, inspirational presenters and projects.

I guess I went expecting to hear about small-scale activities that created modest extra revenue for NFP organisations and charities – the little Op shop, candle and bag making, the coffee buggy. Instead, there were major successful enterprises on display, that while all starting small, had achieved incredible results, both financially and in supporting so many and in quite short timeframes.

I was truly gobsmacked by the commitment and determination and personal investment and focus by these visionaries.

Also, the connection with Disabilities Action Week and showcasing the “abilities” of so many achievers, was again very motivating.

A great Forum, wonderful connections and extremely well organised by P2P.

Congratulations.
