Online - Tummler School - meet Karen Davies, founder of Purple Shoots
@
Tummler is a Yiddish word for people who are hired to get a party going, which is how Grow Social Capital regards community changemaking.

How do we get government, banks and wider society to do more to support people in disadvantaged communities who want to help themselves by starting or growing their own business, yet will often get refused finance or be held back by bureaucratic rules?

That’s the challenge facing inspiring changemaker Karen Davies, who started a pioneering charity, Purple Shoots to provide microfinance and support for over 700 Welsh businesses.

Karen will be sharing an exclusive insight into what motivates her to commit herself to such life changing work, the influence of her Christian values, and just how others can seek active community engagement to contribute to a positive impact on society.
