Table Host - Josiah Lockhart from Firstport
A serial entrepreneur and CEO to stimulate and facilitate discussion
Unlike a traditional conference setting, Impact Summit offers a festive, creative and interactive programme, maximising delegate participation and channelling the ideas of everyone present into actionable recommendations.
Table hosts play the role of stimulating conversation and facilitating discussion with a diverse group of attendees. They are ecosystem partners, leaders and role models who also are committed to the Can Do Agenda. Let's meet one of them: Josiah Lockhart!
Josiah is a serial social entrepreneur with over 10 years senior management experience helping oversee organisations through intense transition, start-up, and restructuring, including leading the development at some of Scotland’s top performing social enterprises. Currently Chief Executive at Firstport, Josiah leads a team that supports over 1100 new entrepreneurs a year to take their first steps towards setting up and accelerating businesses with social impact at their core.
Josiah also sits on the Scottish Land Fund committee, a £10mil fund that helps communities acquire and manage community assets and businesses.
