Positive defiance a deaf womans social enterprise journey


Positive defiance a deaf womans social enterprise journey
23 November 2017
17:30-19:30

Jane Cordell will talk about how her unexpected life story led to the development of Result CIC, a successful social enterprise providing coaching and training to people who continue to be marginalised in society, particularly in times of economic uncertainly. Jane’s talk will challenge the audience to consider how talent can be ‘hidden in plain sight’ and pose questions to help expand how we develop responsibility in business.
