    Fit for the Future: managing risk takes 'tough conversations' | Part 1

    19:45

    What does it mean to build a healthy, resilient, sustainable organisation that’s able to do good and well at the same time? In this series, Buzzacott and Pioneers Post meet some of the stars of social enterprise and mission-driven business to talk about how to build a strong culture, how to find the right finance, how to navigate risk, and what it means to measure and manage impact. Growing a social enterprise – and growing its impact – often means taking risks. At the same time, making sure that a business is financially sustainable is essential to its survival. How to strike the right balance? Pioneers Post’s managing editor Anna Patton and Buzzacott partner Eddie Finch talk to Zoe Portlock, co-founder and chair of the award-winning social enterprise Bikeworks, and Tej Dhami, managing director of The Change Coefficient, which provides social impact and investment advisory services. Together, they discuss how social enterprises and their investors can think of risk in a way that enables them to achieve greater social impact, while remaining sustainable. In part 1, we hear: - Why resilience is all about purpose and passion - Why funding - but also trust and tough conversations - are critical to a long-term mindset - And why taking shortcuts on communication can be one of the most dangerous things when it comes to risk Move on to part 2 to hear the conversation continue here: https://soundcloud.com/pioneers-post/fit-for-the-future-managing-risk-part-2

    How you can create & be part of ethical supply chains | Part 2 | WISE Ways to Lead Webinar

    24:13

    How to create, and be part of, an ethical supply chain? That’s the question we’re addressing today, in the first of our 2021 WISE Ways to Lead webinars delivered by Pioneers Post and NatWest. The first episode featured Jo Salter, founder of ethical brand Where does it come from, who explained how to build an ethical supply chain. In part 2, Pioneers Post's global editor Julie Pybus talks to Aoise Keogan-Nooshabadi, co-founder of Supply Change, an organisation that helps social enterprises win and deliver contracts, working with buyers in the construction industry, local authorities, housing associations and corporates. She tells us how social enterprises can get themselves into the supply chain as an ethical or more social alternative, and leverage that trend to build back better, during and post-pandemic. The episode concludes with Jo and Aoise answering questions from the webinar's audience.

    The Feeling's Mutual: ‘Collectivise like mad’ – how to rewire a system broken by market forces

    43:19

    Mutual aid means that we look out for each other: you support me and I support you. In the wake of Covid-19, thousands of new groups have been set up on these principles. But is there a danger of losing the 'mutual'? In this special episode, guests hosts Vidhya Alakeson and Angela Fell are taking over the podcast to explore the role of mutuality in improving neighbourhoods. They talk to Neil McInroy, chief executive of the Centre for Local Economic Strategies (CLES), and Jess Steele, director of Jericho Road Solutions, and they discuss how communities can work with local government to rewire a system broken by market forces.

    Fit for the future: Be 'guided by the mission' to raise the right finance

    38:03

    Social enterprises seeking to grow and increase their impact usually need to raise some type of finance. Often, they'll look to social investment: loans, equity or blended finance. But often the process can be confusing and difficult to navigate. In this episode of Fit for the Future, hosts Anna Patton, Pioneers Post’s managing editor, and Matt Katz, partner at Buzzacott accountancy firm, talk to Isabelle Irani, co-founder of social investment firm Sumerian Partners, and Mark Simms, CEO of P3 Charity, which supports vulnerable people in England through housing, outreach and other activities.

    The Feeling's Mutual: "If these groups dissolve they haven't failed."

    46:35

    In the latest episode of our podcast series, co-hosts Bob Thust and Maff Potts are joined by Thomas Waring of Macc, which supports the voluntary sector in Manchester, and Amardeep Dhillon, London bar tender, journalist and self-confessed ‘rabble rouser’. The debate is centred around informal groups engaging with formal institutions, delving into the good, bad and ugly of informal and formal mutual aid. “Mutuality is this thing that’s fuelled by connection, by opportunities to connect, and that can be supported in the right ways and with the understanding of power, through some formalised groups and through informal connections as well,” says Bob.  After the recent publication of a report by Danny Kruger MP, discussion in this episode is politically charged. With general agreement the report gives a lot of hope, the group believes its limitations are clear. Tom comments: “It’s basically saying we’re going to accept mutual aid as long as it’s not challenging the normal order of things.”

    The Feeling's Mutual: "It's either madness or genius but I'm open to it either way."

    37:10

    In the second episode of our new podcast series, co-hosts Bob Thust and Maff Potts are joined by Dr Simon Kaye, Senior Policy Researcher at New Local Government Network, and Pat Fernandes, a Community Financial Inclusion Manager at Advice for Renters. Mutual aid means that we look out for each other: you support me and I support you. In the wake of Covid-19, thousands of new groups have been set up on these principles. But is there a danger of losing the 'mutual'? In a new podcast series – The Feeling's Mutual – Bob, Maff and guests discuss, and offer their potential solutions. Whilst the podcast kicks off with a discussion around the role of institutions, trust and connection soon become the buzzwords with Pat sharing her recent experiences of funding experiments at Brent Council: “What sprang to mind is a community ATM where people could get money on demand. It’s either madness or genius but I’m open to it either way.”
