The Guardian Podcast

Woohoo!

It turns out I’m presenting a new podcast for The Guardian this week and a very happy and proud man I am too.

It’s their Social Enterprise 2011 summit on Tuesday at The H.A.C. Armoury House in London. I’ll be there to find out where the sector is now and where it might head across a whole range of different subject areas. From funding to regulation. New markets to growth strategies.

And the winner is…

We’ll also hear from the winner (to be announced at the summit) of The Guardian Social Enterprise Award 2011. They will receive all kinds of goodies but we’ll get to that on the podcast or click here if you want to see now. You can check out the finalists too here.

Nick Hurd MP, Minister for Civil Society

Speakers and stuff

I’ll try to grab some keynote speakers <– they are there… and ask them some searching and intelligent questions. Well I’ll try.

If you have any questions you might want to ask Nick Hurd The Minister for Civil Society then please fire them my way on twitter. You can find me here – @seanamcginty

You probably do so already but if not please follow @guardiansocent too.

Where will I find this podcast?

Good question at the back there… well it will be on The Guardian Social Enterprise Network

You’ll be able to subscribe through iTunes and other places as yet unheard of probably.

Hope you can find the time to have a listen and if you’re running a social enterprise or thinking of setting one up please get in touch I am really interested in hearing from lots of new people about their experiences.

One thought on “The Guardian Podcast

  1. We have run a social enterprise bringing broadband to a rural area since 2005. We are starting a new one at the moment to cover a wider area with a fibre connection. We have not had very good experience with local county council but have found parish councils to be very supportive. We haven’t seen any evidence of big society via the government yet. But we bash on. I don’t know how other social enterprises will fare, but as regards internet access for rural areas there will be no help from government, they are totally committed to handing the digital switchover funding to the major telcos who will only help the fringes of urban areas. ‘There’s also a negative side’. I think ministers should be made aware of this at every opportunity. Thanks Sean. Hope it all goes well for you
