After sell out events in 2009 and 2010, this year the event is debunking the hype around social enterprise and getting to the facts about the future of social enterprise. The programme will examine what social entrepreneurs, commissioners, investors and policy makers need to do to ensure that the sector thrives in these difficult times.

The day will be more interactive than ever - with networking sessions, panel debates and practical case studies - all providing insights for social entrepreneurs who are either delivering public services or who want to scale up to do so. There will be sessions covering:

  • funding
  • regulation
  • service improvement
  • new markets
  • strategies for growth
  • working with the corporate sector

And contributions from:

  • Nick Hurd, minister for civil society, Cabinet Office
  • Paul Drechsler, chairman and chief executive, Wates
  • Penny Low, member of the Singapore Parliament and founder and president of Social Innovation Park (SIP), Singapore
  • Sir Nick Partridge OBE, chief executive, Terrence Higgins Trust
  • Rupert Scofield, president and CEO, FINCA and author, The Social Entrepreneur's Handbook
  • Nick O'Donohoe, chief executive, Big Society Capital

If you're an ambitious enterprise working with the public sector, or a commissioner seeking a better understanding about the social enterprise sector then you need to be at this event. Don't forget, if you are a member of Social Firms UK you'll save 20%

Plus don't miss your chance to enter the Guardian Social Enterprise Award. Your chance to prove why your venture has the potential to deliver greater social impact.
