Event Details

Join the University of Exeter as we work through Kate’s book and explore what it might mean for small businesses in Cornwall.

Cornwall’s Business Book Club: Series 2 – Doughnut Economics by Kate Raworth

Doughnut Economics is a great book, but it also explains a rationale for modern business – have you heard of it?
Have you wanted to read the book, to help you consider using the model to change the way you do business, but just haven’t found the time?
Interested, but not sure how to get started?

Join the University of Exeter as we work through Kate’s book and explore what it might mean for small businesses in Cornwall.

The series will open with an introductory session featuring the University of Exeter’s Dr Allen Alexander and his recent interview with Kate Raworth. Peter Lefort, from the Cornwall Doughnut Collective, will get us thinking about some of the doughnut’s key themes and introduce the practical tools we will be using as the series progresses.

Then, taking up only an hour a week during a lunch break, we will work through the book together, one chapter at a time. You will also get a free copy of the book:

25 Nov 12 – 1.15 pm Be Agnostic about Growth
2 Dec 12 – 2 pm Conclusion and future steps

Sessions will feature guest speakers and case studies from businesses who are already using the doughnut. However, the aim of each session is to provide a space for discussion so come prepared to participate in some challenging and interesting conversations.

The aim of the series is to encourage and equip you to start using the doughnut model within your business in whatever way you can, and we will arrange a follow up session for participants to share their progress and challenges in mid-2022.

This book club is fully funded through Unlocking Potential’s Future Focus programme supporting SMEs in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.

There are eligibility criteria in order to attend the series, if we are unsure of your eligibility, we can exchange details on email and then to confirm your place.
