At Leicester Interchange we believe in the power of great conversations being the bedrock of powerful collaborations. That’s why we have added the Changemaker Social to our offer. The idea is to invite social entrepreneurs and innovators to come along and spend time together and to share their thoughts and ideas (and frustrations) with others whilst we provide them with cake, beer, coffee and tea. We know that making a difference whilst doing something different can be hard and even lonely at times; so we want a to create a space where people can have fun, relax and connect with others.
Our first Changemaker Social went ahead on 4th October 2018 and it was great to see so many new faces at the event. From budding entrepreneurs, to project leaders and funding advisors, there was a great mix of people - many of them meeting for the first time - to share their experiences with each other and think about how they can develop their work to have even greater impact across Leicester’s communities.
A huge thank you to our hosts for the evening, the wonderful Gail and Aaron at the Leicester Coffee House on Granby Street, a brand new social enterprise designed to support young people in the city increase their employability skills. We wish you guys the best of luck!
Details of our next Changemaker Social will be coming out soon. We’re planning for a December event, so keep an eye across our social media channels (we’re now on Instagram too) for more information as it’s released.
