Delightful dinner this evening at Admiralty House, London, hosted by the Office of the Third Sector – with excellent catering by Jamie Oliver’s restaurant Fifteen. In addition to social entrepreneurs I already knew – including Penny Newman (now of Fifteen), Nigel Kershaw of Big Issue Invest, Gib Bulloch of Accenture Development Partners and Reed Paget of Belu Water, I was delighted to meet people like Tokunbo Ajasa-Oluwa of Catch 22 Magazine and Sam Everington of Bromley By Bow. Many of them were Social Enterprise Ambassadors. Good chat, too, with Campbell Robb, who heads the Office of the Third Sector. Downturn very much in people’s minds, but I found myself thinking of same rooms when occupied by Winston Churchill during WWII and my mood lightened considerably.
