Social Enterprise Consulting Project

Reconnaissance Management Consulting Group has been retained to conduct a feasibility study for a new social enterprise in the area of social services for an organization in Toronto.  I am the lead consultant on the project team that includes Kaye Grant (Winnipeg) and  Cathy Lang (Toronto) who both have extensive consulting experience in the social social economy.  We hope to assist this organization to be able to identify the best structure and fit with their current operations and to identify the financial viability of the proposed service offerings so that they are better able to make an informed decision on whether this enterprise will assist them in fulfilling their mandate.

Start to New Year – Social Enterprise Course at U of W

The BUS 3255 course on social enterprise is once again scheduled for the winter term at the University of Winnipeg, Business Faculty. Due to its popularity the enrolled capacity has been increased from 36 to 48 students. The course is also in the process of becoming a permanent course in the business curriculum from its original experimental status. A number of social enterprise practitioners including Richard Doyle, President and CEO of ImagineAbility and Shaun Loney, Executive Director of BUILD, have once again agreed to quest presentations in the course.
