Topic: Social Enterprise World Forum 2020: From in-person event to virtual

Founded in 2008 in Scotland, Social Enterprise World Forum (SEWF) is the world's leading event for social enterprise practitioners. Each year it is held in a different country in partnership with the localhost. In 2020, the event was due to be held in Halifax, Canada in September with around 1500 people expected to attend from over 50 countries. Due to COVID-19, SEWF had the choice to cancel or go virtual. In this session, Helen will cover how SEWF is adapting the event for an online audience, including some of the challenges and opportunities presented.
