Event description

Description

Could Social Enterprise help your organisation increase your capacity, resiliency and impact? Join Sandra Hamilton, Canada’s First SocialMBA, for an afternoon exploring how business models are being applied to improve lives and drive positive social change all across Canada.

Funding models are changing. Between 2003 and 2009 Government transfers to the core nonprofit sector were almost halved, falling from 36% to 19.7% of all core sector revenues. Donations remained stable at 14%.

While business is becoming more socially responsible, the social profit sector is becoming more entrepreneurial. Since 2007, earned income has been the fastest growing revenue stream in Canada’s nonprofit sector. Over 45 % of sector revenue is generated through the sale of goods and services. When combined with Membership Fees and Investment Income, this means that two thirds, 66%, of sector income is unrestricted earned income. This shift impacts how organisations are thinking about strategy, future board governance, organizational culture and development. Register now for this important conversation about advancing Social Enterprise in the Wood Buffalo Region.

Sandra Hamilton: Canada’s First Social MBA

Committed to seeing the work of socially responsible organisations recognized and rewarded in public sector supply chains, Sandra Hamilton has designed both British Columbia’s & Alberta’s first Social Procurement Frameworks. Here work with the RMWB caught the attention of Global Affairs Canada, who nominated Sandra to profile her work at the World Trade Organization (WTO) Symposium on Sustainable Government Procurement in Geneva.

Hamilton has over 20 years’ experience as a strategic advisor and business consultant. She is the former Business Manager to Vancouver 2010 Olympics CEO John Furlong and Olympic rower Silken Laumann and was previously the Director of Marketing at the Vancouver Sun and Publisher of BC Woman Magazine.
