This is just what the rapidly growing social enterprise sector needs, a management manual to help us take social enterprises to the next level by people who have hands on experience". (Sophi Tranchell, Managing Director of Divine Chocolate Ltd and Cabinet Office sponsored Social Enterprise Ambassador).
