How to 'Soapbox':
- Each Soapbox presenter will have a maximum of 5 minutes to present/describe a single social enterprise idea/challenge/etc. to the group
- A specific and succinctly articulated challenge will receive more specific and helpful feedback
- Fellow social enterprisers will then have 10 minutes to offer feedback, potential solutions, connections and expertise
- After presentations there will be a general summary discussion and wrap-up
