Mike Berriman - a creator of ESFN

Mike Berriman had been involved in the establishment of ESFN and developing the organisation. He worked with me for many years along with Guy Turnbull (now Care and Share Associates – an ESFN Member). Mike and I carried out research on the impact of social franchisors and set up and managed the website, organised events and other work.

Mike and two others, Richard and Paul, set up Co-wheels, car clubs, and now has grown rapidly with 8 social franchises and 20 staff.

Personally, I claimed that I was more handsome than him but sadly I was wrong. Mike was also the most funny and charming man and has helped setting up dozens of social enterprisers. He created a better world.

Although very fit, Mike died October 2013 with a Oesophagus cancer when he was only 52.
