SECNA Monthly Meetup #12: Resilience
Social enterprises operate in an ever changing environment with the unexpected often having a serious impact on business operations, whether it be natural disasters to changes in consumer preferences or international supply chains. Our three panelists will explore how social entrepreneurs can prepare for the unexpected, navigate challenges and secure the future of their enterprises. Join us for a night of networking and shared wisdom with Louise Tran (Head of OzHarvest Ventures), Ravi Prasad (Founder, Director Parliament on King) and James Humpherson (General Manager, Humanitix).
Our meetups are about having fun and enjoying each other’s company while sharing and learning from each other. We start with about 45 minutes of networking before getting into the content. It's a way to make new friends, stay connected with old friends, and the focus is on bringing the community and ecosystem together.
We also want social enterprises attending to share some exciting things happening in your organisations and in particular discuss how others in the room can help.
Our meetups start at 6.00pm in person and include drinks and snacks. Both alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages will be available at this event, alongside some delicious social enterprise catering. We welcome those who can't make it in person to join us online from 6.45pm.
About SECNA Meetups
SECNA’s purpose is to nurture a healthy and connected social enterprise sector in NSW and the ACT… and beyond, including everyone in and around the ecosystem.
A connected and engaged social enterprise community is key to increasing awareness, understanding, and advocacy - while building strong partnerships and collaboration. This will help us progress to our shared vision of a world where we collaborate to ensure all people, places, and our planet thrive.
That’s what SECNA Meetups are all about. A regular way for us to meet, make new friends, stay connected with old friends, and bring the community and ecosystem together. Having fun and enjoying each other’s company while sharing and learning from each other. Exchanging ideas, celebrating the wins, and learning from the fails. In the spirit of collaboration.
Our meetups aren’t just for current SECNA members. We welcome everyone in and around the social enterprise ecosystem… and even those who are just curious to see what it’s all about. We come together valuing and including our diversity.
We meet on the first Thursday of the month and the focus is on convening and holding space for connection in a fun and friendly way. We also have talks, panels, and interactive sessions on a range of topics related to social enterprise. Most of our meetups are hybrid and provide connection beyond Sydney and Canberra to other metro, rural, and regional locations across NSW and the ACT.
We’d love to hear from you if you’re keen to speak, there’s a topic you’d like covered, or if there’s someone you’d like to hear from. There are also sponsor/partnership opportunities available.
