An increasing amount of public sector professionals are either 'spinning out' of the sector or are considering doing so.
These spin-outs encounter a range of challenges - including prohibitive legal and financial hurdles. This free-to-attend seminar will provide new and prospective spin-outs with practical advice on how to overcome the problems they will face as they leave the public sector.
Perhaps the most important of these is how to develop a sustainable business from the very first contract won. Attendees will hear from fellow professionals who have successfully made the transition from public sector employee to delivering public services as a social enterprise, successfully establishing a sustainable business in the process.
