This week, the team at SASC was delighted to attend the launch of a new book for social sector leaders entitled, How to Change the World: The Essential Guide for Social Sector Leaders by author Craig Dearden-Phillips.
The book focuses on influencers in the third sector. It shares the experiences of more than 25 exceptional leaders running successful charities, social enterprises and public service mutual. We are proud that our very own Managing Director, Ben Rick was included. A chapter dedicated to Ben looks back over his career and talks about why he and co-Founder, Adam Knight decided to set up SASC, the purpose of the organisation and their approach. It also covers Ben’s thoughts on social investment, the impact and risk involved and the realities of working in the sector. The book has already attracted positive reviews with a 5 star rating on Amazon. Dawn Austwick, CEO, Big Lottery Fund said, “We’re seeing increasing insecurity and instability in the charity sector as funding becomes harder to secure. This book will help you adapt to these changing times, survive and succeed.” In the words of one Amazon reviewer it’s a must read for “anyone wanting to lead sustainable change.”
