Get Social Dublin! – Episode 4

Adele O Connor, Project Coordinator at Doras Bui

In our fourth podcast, we outline why Social Enterprises are vital to economic growth and inclusion, especially for our local economies and communities. We are chatting about how social enterprises impact their communities and the social return on investment but also how customers are at the core. There are great, engaging stories to be told and social enterprises need to become more business savvy and more deliberate in their social impact and increasing the awareness and visibility of what they are doing. We discuss how creating effective partnerships and collaboration is a key step towards tackling these challenges in order to exchange knowledge and avoid inefficient overlapping.
