Is social enterpreneurship always a good thing? Is outsourcing of government contracts driving efficiency in the public sector, or merely the gateway to privatisation? With the proliferation of initiatives like impact bonds, impact investment and social entrepreneurship, it is time to debate the broader implications of this growing movement.
The Social Entrepreneurship Panel brings together people from different parts of the sector to discuss the potential and limitations of impact driven entrepreneurship.
Our speakers include:
– Nigel Ball, Deputy Director & Head of Commissioning Support at the Government Outcomes Lab at Blavatnik School of Government. Before that, Nigel was a part of the founding team of West London Zone for Children and Young People, where he set up a 'Collective Impact Bond' and the Innovation Manager at Teach First.
– Campbell McDonald, Managing Director of Baxendale, a purpose driven consultancy. Campbell, specialises in large scale public sector spin-outs, employee ownership, and health and social care sectors. He worked closely with Cabinet Office to help develop and shape the emerging policy agenda on Public Service Mutuals.
