Phil Tulba's Summary

I've been working specifically with charities and social enterprises for over a decade and have a broad experience base from within the Public and Third Sector / Civil Society Organisations.

This includes working within health and social care (commissioning and service design), homelessness, sport and physical activity, regeneration and youth entrepreneurship.

I have commercial private sector experience from Hotel and Catering to Internet Marketing, Web Development, mobile communications and e-commerce.

I've led workshops and presented at international conferences, helped former substance misusers set up services, worked with early-stage social ventures, helped commissioners think about how they could design new health and social care services, volunteered, mentored and currently in the process of growing and replicating a successful social enterprise.

Specifically in the last year I have worked with a range of government and non-governmental organisations (NGOs), social enterprises at various stages of development (start-up, growth and replication) and charities.

Activities have included presentations, business development and income generation, management consultancy and programme management.

My goals are to promote the social business model and find new ways of doing business through it.
