The British Council has announced the first of its Social Thursday event series slated to take place at the British Council in Accra, Ghana, on Wednesday, 30th August and Thursday 31st August 2017, from 10 am to 8 pm each day. This event is hosted in partnership with TEDx Accra and SE Ghana.
The goal of this event is to assist social entrepreneurs with the needed skill sets to create impact and profit in their businesses. Social entrepreneurs will get the opportunity to explore solutions to the challenges faced in generating profit and impact in their businesses. The event will also present an avenue for the general public to attend a TEDx-styled talk on the theme, “IMPACT AND PROFIT’’. The talk is expected to uncover how to effectively deliver, measure and communicate impact as well as improve profit margin as a social enterprise.
This year, the British Council is giving social entrepreneurs the chance to exhibit their products and services on both days. There will also be an opportunity to participate in a business pitch competition coupled with mentoring sessions from business experts.
Attendance is free. Visit the British Council Ghana website: http://www.britishcouncil.org.gh/ to register or follow us on twitter @ghBritish via the hashtag #SocialThursday, and on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BritishCouncilGhana/
