Highlights from the Digbeth, Cheapside and Highgate Social Enterprise Network Meeting

This morning’s meeting was rather special. As it took place during Birmingham’s second annual City Drive, a week of activities aiming to raise the profile of the sector and reach out beyond it, we were delighted to welcome a broader range of guests than usual. Everyone was keen to find out how they might engage with Digbeth Social Enterprise Quarter, helping to expand our work as well as their own.

Following formal introductions and an opening speech from Sarah Crawley, CEO of iSE, who hosted the event, there was ample opportunity to make connections and explore ideas and opportunities – facilitated by the free flow of good coffee and home-made cakes!

Participants included:

Anthony Collins Solicitors
BCDS Accountancy Services
BITA Pathways
Citizen Coaching
Crofts & Assinder
Millennium Point
RnR Organisation
Pat Benson Boxing Academy
Pat O’Neill
Phil Beardmore
Prime Resolution
South & City College Birmingham 
Spot On Marketing & Communications
University of Birmingham
YMCA Birmingham
