The Big Society Network ‘Giving for Good‘ event was really worth attending. The ‘5 minute’ slot for talking about your idea did feel like auditions for Pop Idol at times but there were some very inspirational people talking about their Big Society ventures. It was good to see so many social enterprises, social innovators and social entrepreneurs being passionate about the Big Society!
My favourite were MindApples, People Who Share, HorsesMouth, UnLtd and BlueDotShop. I now have some internet research do to!
Photos from the event are already up on Flikr and it’s worth having a look at the Twitter feed #bsngiving. Everyone was encouraged to Tweet the best thing they took away from the various talks.
