Alastair Wilson – CEO, The School for Social Entrepreneurs

Ali has overseen the growth of the SSE from its fairly humble beginnings to an international organisation supporting, developing and growing several hundred Social Entrepreneurs a year with the majority of those receiving free support and grant funding.

The SSE programme has been developed and refined over the years to become a best practice and award winning learning programme. SSE continues to innovate in the sector with things like Match Funding which increases the trading activity of social enterprise and Intrapreneurship programmes aimed at increasing the social values of the corporate and public sector.

Ali is a force unto himself, raising awareness and honest debate around Social Enterprise.
