SAN Conference 2017

Reporting on Social Value - Good News, Fake News, and the need for Social Audit

Friday 20th October 2017. 54 St James Street, Liverpool, L1 0AB   

SAN is holding two mini-conferences in one…

  …a morning focussing on accounting for social, environmental and economic impacts with keynote speech, practical exercises and case study examples; and an afternoon focussing on the process and practicalities of social audit.

  Come to either the morning or the afternoon – or come for the whole day to take part in the full debate!

 SAN is pleased to welcome Neil McInroy from the Centre for Local Economic Strategies as our keynote speakers, a range of experts in social audit and assurance, as well as providing you with a medley of case study examples of social accounting in practice. Our aim is to help sort the fake news from the good news in relation to social value…
