New for last year’s conference was the Social Business of the Year Live Award and we will be running the competition again this year.
Throughout the day, entrepreneurs will have the chance to deliver impromptu 45 second pitches from the floor. The best three, as judged by our expert panel, will go forward to compete in the final round where they will have 10 minutes to further sell their organisation. The winner, as judged by both the panel and an audience vote, will receive the coveted title of ClearlySo Social Business of the Year.
Last year’s award was sponsored by Coutts and the deserved winner was Paul Harrod from Bristol Together CIC.
Pitch your business live to the audience for a chance to win the £2k cheque or a scholarship to the Oxford Leadership Masterclass.
Baxi Partnership is seeking to find and reward one of the brightest and sustainably-minded future leaders of tomorrow. Peter Stocks, Managing Partner of the employee-owned organisation will select from the entrants to the ClearlySo Social Business of the Year Award, the leader who is most innovative, entrepreneurial & aligned to Baxi Partnership’s own set of sustainable values. The winner will receive a place on the prestigious Oxford Leadership Masterclass (usually £1,950), a 2 day residential course at which some of the Employee Owned (EO) sector’s brightest leaders meet. Join speakers such as Patrick Lewis, Partners Councillor at John Lewis Partnership and Helen Bass, HR Director at Childbase and learn from an inspirational group who work differently to the rest, driving innovation and productivity by turning traditional top down management structures on their head. This is a tremendous opportunity to be inspired by the collaborative & participative culture of the EO sector which is in its spirit, community-focussed, entrepreneurial and innovative.
Baxi Partnership is an employee owned group of companies that enables people, organisations and communities to take control of their futures and deliver a triple bottom line – economic, social and environmental.
