Saling 2012 is the corporate vehicle Richard Gleed and Dr Andrea Winkelmann-Gleed use for their social entrepreneurship, business consultancy and research activities. As well as fee-earning work, our interests in social entrepreneurship have led us to mentor and coach individuals involved in ‘Not Just for Profit’ business start-ups in emerging economies and developing countries.
Our current work builds on our different backgrounds. Richard is an economist, management consultant, business coach and social entrepreneur. He uses his experience in management consultancy (with IBM from 2002 – 2012 and with PwC prior to that) to coach and advise small businesses and startups both in the UK and overseas. The majority of his social entrepreneur clients can be classified as “not just for profit” in that they have social and community goals and objectives in addition to income-generation ones.
