I would recommend this course to anyone who is seriously considering starting a social enterprise.Eamonn Donaghy, Disability Action
As a recently appointed Business Development Manager, my role is to develop several new business ideas from concept to operational enterprises. This programme gave me the skills to work through this process using research and feasibility studies and the creation of business plans. It gave me the confidence to implement my ideas and take on the operational management of the new ventures.Michael Paul, The Oasis Centre
I was impressed with the quality of the teaching materials, the range of issues covered and the experience and mix of staff delivering the modules. The course has made the organisation more outward looking, taking a more business perspective on project concepts and be more conscious about the financial viability of any new developments within the Bryson group.Gavin Bell, Bryson Charitable Group
