Talk 7: How social trading can bring in income whilst bringing about change

The Big Issue's recent innovation has been The Big Issue Shop which not only brings in income for The Big Issue it also creates a ‘social echo’ with every purchase - every product on the shop puts people and the planet first. Initially to get the ball rolling and the idea across, they actually produced their own range of products! These are now being joined by many other like-minded products from outside suppliers.

A networking event that not only gives you the chance to meet people, but also the tools for that conversation to be more relaxed and enjoyable, so you can make the most of it. I would specially suggest it to those more shy, afraid to break the ice.
