Members and guests are invited to join us for another thought provoking and inspiring breakfast to connect, learn and develop with like minded people.
This month we'll be hearing from Deb Allan and Kevin Wilcock....
Deb Allan has ventured across a few career changes over the past decade, which amongst other things has provoked her to go deeper into the study and application of Social Enterprise. We'll be quizzing Deb on what she has learnt through this process. We will be taking a particular focus on what she discovered about micro-finance, a core part of her studies in Social Entrepreneurship. When deciding methods of community contribution, micro-finance can be an option, and accordingly it's important to understand this contribution structure. This discussion will be an important foundation for our February breakfast when we will be looking at a specific micro-finance project that one our members has initiated in the Philippines.
Kevin Wilcock is one of the main drivers behind Soul Cafe. Soul Café was established in August 2003 to serve hot meals to the homeless and disadvantaged people of Newcastle, free-of-charge. Soul Cafe currently serves over 700 meals per week. Soul Cafe does not consider itself a soup kitchen! The staff at LifeShapers work hard to create a café-like atmosphere where people are given table service and a choice of healthy and tasty meals. The aim is to serve the disadvantaged in the community with dignity and respect. The café employs two full-time chefs and provides a community support person who assists clients in areas such as accommodation, finding appropriate welfare support and legal representation and medical advice when required. Kevin will give us behind the scenes insight into the Newcastle community and what is being done to support those who have found themselves in extremely difficult circumstances.
This is all included with breakfast for members so please use the promo code to waive the attendance fee.
