Kate Harcus | As a natural facilitator I enjoy meeting people, building rapport and then utilising my knowledge of situations or opportunities to create links that are mutually beneficial to all parties involved. With over nine years’ experience in an advisory role to businesses and third sector organisations within North West England and North East Wales, I have developed a strong understanding of different sectors and industries. Subsequently, I have a keen interest in assisting companies to create new relationships with their local communities to fulfil their business requirements, whilst also enhancing their local area. As a result of this work, I have established a wide range of valuable contacts within businesses, charities and communities, along with many networks throughout this geographical area.
Mark Richardson | I describe myself as a social entrepreneur for hire; setting up, supporting and measuring the impact of social enterprises in Wales and around the world. I co-founded my first social enterprise when I left university aged 21, providing employment for homeless people in the UK. The success of the venture led to my advising the UK government on social enterprise and homelessness.
Since then I’ve supported the development of over a hundred social enterprises across Wales, the UK and internationally. As Director of Social Enterprise at Bangor University, I launched and managed a Masters in Social Enterprise. I’ve led research into social enterprise across five continents and love the opportunity to learn how social entrepreneurs are changing the world in countries from Wales to Brazil to Sudan. I particularly enjoy using Social Return on Investment (SROI) to demonstrate the value of what they are doing.
