The Social Enterprise UK "Buy Social" campaign provides great opportunities for SE's to promote themselves as a way for people and organisations to add social value.
But why should mainstream business engage - what are the hidden benefits, and how can they do this?
Some SE's also feel this isn't why people should trade with them. They feel that first and foremost it's about getting great service and products.
And what are the opportunities for SE's to develop the Social Market Place with each other?
