SAN Gathering 2019

This year, the focus of the SAN Gathering was hosted at the Impact Hub in Digbeth, Birmingham on Wednesday 16th October 2019.

Feedback from the people who attended included:

  • I expected the day to be thought-provoking, well organised and valuable – it was!
  • It was more relevant, and I learned more useful, practical stuff to use back at work
  • I benefitted from the focus on the audit and importance of validation
  • First step into social accounting, very good overview
  • Really good to speak with new people, as well as reconnect with colleagues and friends
  • Other delegates were open and generous with their experience
  • Found Liz’s talk inspiring
  • Thank you for creating a space to discuss and explore social accounting and thank you to those that have shared their insight. Keep these coming!

Further information about the Gathering and all the presentations will be available shortly at our website, but SAN Board Member, Dave Furze, videoed the whole event and his films can now be viewed at our YouTube Channel –

SAN was pleased to welcome Liz Tapner of SELNET Lancashire – the 2019 UK’s most influential woman in social enterprise as our keynote speaker.

Liz is the driving force behind Selnet and has been responsible for developing it into the major infrastructure organisation that it is today.

A chartered business adviser and business mentor, she has extensive experience of business support programmes having worked for, and with, local authorities across the North West throughout her career. She specialises in finance and accounts and is able to support clients in all aspects of financial planning.
