How to build an organisation that balances impact as well as budgets; and establish a reputation that money can’t buy

In a day and age where reputations are increasingly starting to matter, we at CUE see it as simply good business sense to think of the impact of your organisation on society. On 26 November, we invite you to a workshop where pioneers of social enterprise and clean technology discuss how build an organisation that is environmentally, socially and financially sustainable.

Areas covered will include determining the appropriate organisational structure for your goals, building a brand and reputation around your commitment to responsible entrepreneurship, and finding an initial niche for clean technologies, while working towards entry into mass market in an evolving social and legal landscape.
