Last week I caught up with PR whiz Fishbowl Public Relations Birgit Schonafinger, business consultant Sue Gold and Beechworth hero Joan Simms at one of the latest NorthEast Professional Women's Lunches. It didn't take long for the four of us to get talking about the upcoming Social Change 101 program.
This initiative hopes to set up social enterprises in the Alpine Shire Counciland Indigo Shire Council communities this year. It'll train a group of entrepreneurial individuals to develop a social enterprise that makes a positive community benefit.
Not in Indigo and Alpine? The School for Social Entrepreneurs Australia will run further programs in other fire-affected areas in 2017. Locations are still to be determined and will be chosen by the greatest demand and community engagement.
