An informal problem-solving session open to all and aimed to help your local social enterprises, charities and community organisations.

About this Event

Ask&Advise is an informal (coffee, beer & snacks) evening where your local social enterprises, community organisations and charities get to share their small day-to-day challenges and everyone in the room is welcome to offer advice, suggestions or share a useful contact.

You're invited!

Ask&Advise is coming to Midleton!

After four very successful Ask & Advise evenings in Limerick and Skibbereen - we're really excited to invite you to join us in Midleton on October 2nd.

This event is free and open to all - the more people we have in the room, the better, so don't hesitate to register today!

What is it all about?

Those trying to make a positive social impact have great ideas and they never lack the passion - they really, really want to make things better.

And, as all "doers" - they also face a lot of challenges.

Limited resources, lack of contacts, know how or funds – we know this won’t stop them, but might slow them down a little…

Would you like to help in an easy and hassle-free way???

No asking for money, no asking for volunteers - just your brain for an hour or so in return for coffee, beer and snacks.

As McKinsey associate once said: “I would rather be surrounded by smart people than have a huge budget."– so we would like to invite you to an problem-solving session in aid of your local social enterprises.

Our idea is simple – show up, enjoy some coffee, beer & snacks, chat and get to know those who try to make a social impact in Co. Cork and surrounding areas. They will present what they are trying to do and share small, day-to-day challenges they are facing. Then, we will ‘brainstorm’ a little to see if we can work something out to help them…

The problems will vary, so we need all hands on deck – whatever your skills, experience, hobbies or connections are

– all are welcome to join us for this evening!

It will be fun couple of hours and trust us - one good piece of advice can make a HUGE difference to an emerging social enterprise!

And doesn’t it feel great to contribute to something meaningful? Be that hero! And who knows what else you will find there – an inspiration, useful contacts or new friends…

Our hosts for the evening will be Chris MM Gordon – business and a social entrepreneur, the CEO of the Irish Social Enterprise Network (Socent.ie) and BCorp Ireland and Robert Carey - Area & Programme Manager in NEWKD

Our event is organised in partnership with SECAD, under Irish Social Business Campus (ISBC) initiative.

We hope to see you there,ISBC Team
