We’re proud as punch to launch our latest production the ‘Supporting Women In Social Enterprise’ podcast, a commission from Flourish Together CIC, a brilliant organisation that supports women to launch or scale up their social enterprise.
We’ve been buds with Flourish for a few year’s now. We love these ladies. In fact, the foundations of MIC were born from support we received from Flourish back in 2017.
The organisation does great work, from matching women with mentors, to delivering really useful events to support social enterprise journey’s. However, what the team realised was that whilst they were doing all of this wonderful ‘physical’ stuff, there was a load of ladies who just couldn’t benefit from all this goodness, for example those with childcare responsibilities.
So what better way to share that learning in a really accessible way? You guessed it…
The resulting podcast is a magazine-style, monthly production. With each episode based around a theme, it features an interview, a panel discussions (recorded at a live Flourish event) and some mini sound bites from their soc ent network.
It’s an ambitious podcast and involves quite a bit of production, from the event recording, through to getting the founders of Flourish in the same studio, at the same time to do their voice overs (not an easy job, let me tell you!).
What’s brilliant about this podcast…
(not biased at all – ha!) is that there’s nothing else quite like this out there. They have their why and audience nailed too – now that’s a huge task – but they’ve cracked it.
The first episode is out now and it’s all about Governance and Structure – the most unsexy subject in the world, right up there with accounting. However, it’s one of the biggest discussion points in setting up a social enterprise – because there’s so much information out there – and a lot of it conflicts! This episode is useful, entertaining and enlightening! Yes, I have just described something about Governance and structure entertaining! But just trust us on this – mmk?
