Entrepreneurial Leadership through Cross-sector Collaboration
Author/Source: SE Academy & SFBA


“Scottish family businesses and social enterprises share many of the same values. This programme offers a fantastic chance for forward-thinking business leaders to come together to develop shared strategies and cross-sector networks.” Martin Stepek, Scottish Family Business Association

Small and medium sized enterprises account for 99% of all enterprises in Scotland. This is where entrepreneurs and social entrepreneurs are found.
The Scottish Family Business Association (SFBA) and the Social Enterprise Academy have designed an opportunity for those entrepreneurs to learn with peers and share experiences between the social enterprise and family business worlds.
Join us to share strategies for increased profitability, viability and impact, and achieve successful succession.

During this experience you will:

• Explore current challenges and opportunities in social enterprise and family business leadership
• Connect with high profile practitioners in both sectors
• Use cross-sector learning to create shared strategies for local economic growth and community resilience
• Improve your sustainability, profitability, governance and succession with support through peer learning
