Let's Talk Good Finance









Big Society Capital's Let's Talk Good Finance event was held at St Thomas Centre in November.  The aim was to provide information and case studies to organisations interested in applying for social investment.

We heard from:

  • Simon Torrington (Charity Bank) and Gary Miller (GM Social Investment) who shared details of case studies from their investment programmes.
  • Neil Lewis (Intraquest) talked about their warts and all journey to social investment.
  • Melanie Mills (Big Society Capital) gave a round up of useful resources for organisations considering social investment including Impact Measurement tools and the Good Finance website.  

If you were unable to attend or want to listen to Neil's tips again, here is the podcast of the event.
