Michelle is the Chief Executive Officer of Kilmarnock Enterprises which is a social enterprise established 60 years ago.  I interviewed Michelle for the first episode of the podcast about her own story but in this follow up episode we focus more on Kilmarnock itself and the challenges it has faced in recent years as an organisation.  In particular we talk about developing a great culture as well as how you raise funds when you are a social enterprise and do not fit traditional funding requirements.  We also talk about the Social Enterprise World Forum, Impact Investing and the ability of one person with an organisation to leverage change.

"We are changing attitudes through education, employment, and opportunity, empowering people with disabilities to lead purposeful and dignified lives."
