Advocate, as in noun: lawyer, but also as in verb: support, and promote.
As an advocate for social enterprise and a social entrepreneur, I believe in the unique combination of business logic, entrepreneurial drive and commitment to the greater social good that makes social enterprise distinctive and important in today’s world.
In these arguably uncertain, precarious times, I also believe in the inestimable human capacity to innovate and solve problems. Social enterprise is, in my view, an innovative process and methodology that can change the world.
Trained as a lawyer, and with over 20 years experience working in the non-profit sector, I have depth of understanding of organizational structures, governance models, mission and vision, program development and delivery that can help others to plan, build and operate a social enterprise.
