Awards & Publications

Event MicrophoneFor us it’s not about the awards, or how many publications we’re featured in, it’s about the legacy we leave and how many social enterprises we’ve helped to grow and be more impactful.

But we realise for a lot of people and organisation it matters – you want to know that the person you’re going to be working with is an expert in their field and has credibility. Or maybe you’re just curious about what we get up to and what we talk about!
