Jonathan Berry has a health background working in the voluntary sector and the NHS. He has developed a specialism in health literacy and the links between learning and health inequalities. He used his expertise to create a new social enterprise.
Jonathan joined Voluntary Action LeicesterShire's 2013 Future Focus Conference to give a workshop on how social enterprise can help the voluntary sector thrive in a difficult economic climate. His story is of a vital project which saw its funding cut and how that project found ways to package what they did and sell their services to new customers.
At Future Focus, Jonathan's workshop helped groups understand how to fund a fledgling social enterprise, new ways of developing partnerships, and the importance of a definable product.
While the 2013 Future Focus conference is now over, VAL runs trainings and workshops like Jonathan's year-round. If you'd like to learn more about training for your organisation, visit www.Valoneline.org.uk.
