Nick Temple on how social enterprises can embrace Brexit

Oct 04, 2017, 11:02 PM

It's conference season for the political parties, and as a Tory view of free market capitalism in Manchester is pitted against Labour's push for state-funded services in Brighton, is there another way for UK businesses to be successful? Nick Temple, the deputy chief executive of Social Enterprise UK, certainly thinks so. He joins Tim to discuss his view on how sustainable business does not have to be strictly for-profit, but neither does it need to preclude a commercial focus. As one of the fastest growing sectors of the economy, Nick explains what social enterprises stand for and discusses the challenges Brexit brings in terms of the workforce and funding, and whether it could even lead to more ethical procurement decisions.
