This is a great post with some ideas that really resonated for me, particularly the idea of social impact as a measurement of ROI rather than financial impact.

This first session is being presented by Kadisha Lewis-Roberts from Mitchells and Butlers (restaurants and food pub owners) and Ann Rivera of Trident Housing Association.
Kadisha helps to provide a way of starting to understand ghe business by doing a ‘scan the internal environment’. This means:
- keep your finger on the organisational pulse
- meet up with newbies
- develop a sixth sense
- be a data gatherer
Following from this she says we should also scan the external environment by:
- know what’s going on
- find out what your competitors are doing
- build your social capital
- develop yourself
