Social Enterprise Exchange Marketplace 2017

So we had a fabulous day yesterday at this national event. The purpose of the event is to bring together social enterprises and supporters to discuss and celebrate the amazing contribution of social enterprises in Scotland.

For us it was a fantastic opopportunity to engage with others and recognise how successful social enterprises can be and the benefits they can bring to Scotland both socially and economically. My favourite phrase from the day was ‘Social enterprise is good business’ and the event really proved this. We spoke to lots of people sharing our story and getting lots of excellent advice and top tips about growing a a sustainable enterprise.

Bethany and Courtney were amazing ambassadors and did themselves proud talking to people and explaining the Kinlochlovin’ story. They soaked up the atmosphere and proved themselves as the social entrepreneurs of the future. Investing in our young people is at the core of Kinlochlovin’ ethos and seeing two amazing young people attend such a prestigious national event and hold their own in discussions was amazing. The confidence and clarity with which they both talked about their contribution to Kinlochlovin’ and the benefits was incredible and made me immensely proud. Well done girls!

We received lots of compliments about our pretty stall and people were super impressed with the Kinlochlovin’ ethos and enthusiasm. So well done to everyone who has supported us over the last 17 months as the fact we attended this event was a really fantastic celebration of everyone’s hard work and commitment!

We are kinlochlovin’ you all….
