Successful Sophia course – community dialogue, pooling the wisdom, creating entrepreneurs

group photoIt was a pleasure working two Saturdays in July with a lovely group of diverse residents from Valentines ward in Ilford plus one who sneaked in from Newbury ward!

We are still developing the Sophia course and it got a big thumbs up from the 8 course members, plus kids.  A key thread throughout the 4 courses we have run so far, is the focus and activities that draw on the incredible wisdom, skills, experience and insight of residents about their area.  We use this as the starting point for either generating new business and project ideas, or clarifying and sophia cours firt cafe - 1st session 1supporting the business ideas already conceived.
