Buying Socially: The Case for Social Enterprise in Big Business Supply Chains (Free Event)

Are you a social enterprise or budding socially minded entrepreneur who wants to boost your chances of landing valuable contracts with big companies?

Or do you work for a big City firm and want to find out more about establishing supply contracts with social enterprise organisations?
