The Quick Social Business Christmas Gift Guide

November 30, 2020

This Christmas, it’s more important than ever to support social businesses. At a time when it may feel easier to shop online at the major online retailer ‘who shall not be named’, why not take a bit of time to find a social business which benefits a local community?

Today, we are highlighting three social businesses we have been working with over the last year who are selling presents online!

Mid-Point Reflections of the MAN Impact Accelerator

At the halfway point through the program we find ourselves sitting back and reflecting over the last five months. And what a fine journey of progress and development it’s been. We’ve seen our entrepreneurs learn and share all sorts from methodologies to frameworks to general advice about life and business.
