"Action planning brings together key actors from a variety of perspectives to develop consensus about the way forward. It takes account of a variety of objectives that may be met by inclusive entrepreneurship and it builds ownership. It also clarifies roles and drives individual responsibility for action."

My Affiliation with COPIE: 

EU Coordinator and Action Planning expert.

I am Member of the Working Group(s) or have participated in: 

Action Planning (leader)

The two most relevant Topics within COPIE for my work are: 

Much of my work is concerned with bringing key stakeholders together in such a way that they apply their resources and commitment in a coordinated manner within their region.

The second area would be to bring regional stakeholders together with their counterparts from other regions to compare notes, tackle challenges together and take action as a result .

Both of these are an integral part of action planning and of the wider objectives of COPIE as a whole.

Description of the Organisation / Region i am working for: 

As an expert this I do not work for any particular region but have been able to witness the considerable benefits that inclusive entrepreneurship has brought to the regions I have been working with.

Two such benefits stand out; firstly the development of businesses with strong roots in the local area and secondly by tapping into peoples talents and enthusiasms it is possible to create employment opportunities for members of the population who might not otherwise find suitable vacancies.
