The new format for the meetings has proved very popular and over 40 of Fife’s SEs and related organisations attended.

The 5 minute speakers for the Spring meeting were:

Brian Robertson-Fern, Brag Enterprises (standing in for Will Tyler-Greig, Scottish Govt) talking about the Social Enterprise 10 year Action Plan

Nicola Buchanan, Fife Council - giving us invaluable information about local and national funding

Fiona Elliot, Scottish Enterprise - informing SEs about the free research and market info tool – an amazing resource

Lee Walls, Brag Enterprises - telling us about the next Soup event and what’s involved



We also had a couple of folk stand up in the open mic session (without a mic!)


Pauline Hinchion, Scottish Communities – persuading us all to go out and buy and support the new Social Enterprise Bond

Tracey Muirhead, School for Social Entrepreneurs – talking about the new Trade-Up program for SEs in Scotland
