Social UP: Design Thinking for Sustainable Social Enterprises

This high energy 1 day course is designed for those wanting an introduction to Design Thinking for Sustainable Social Enterprises and how it can help you to drive customer centric service innovation and growth within your organisation. It will give you a common level of understanding of the principles of Design Thinking, the terminology, and the key tools.

Social Enterprise Mark CIC is involved in the Social UP project, which aims to use design thinking principles to improve the sustainability, social impact and scalability of social enterprises, to enable them to achieve their societal mission in a financially viable manner.
