Recent news

due to technical issues that my web developer is currently seeking to resolve, my main and usual website is temporarily inaccesibe.

I've therefore created this as a short-term and temporary replacement - apologies for the 'rough and ready' feel to it, but I felt that it would be useful to get something 'back up', however unpolished, as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.

Media articles

I've also had a number of short pieces and letters published in national press and sector publications - copies of these can be accessed and downloaded by following this link

they cover a range of issues including:
* why procurement is a bad thing for social enterprise
* how private and social enterprises can learn together
* the importance of failure
* risks and dangers associated with different legal forms
* impacts and implications of faith for enterprises
* different financing and funding models
* defining and measuring the social enterprise sector

Published articles
