Exclusive video: Barchester boss backs Big Society

Last week I interviewed Mike Parsons, the founder of elderly care homes business Barchester Healthcare, for my day job as editor of BusinessZone.co.uk. He has been hugely successful having grown the business into a £400m turnover operation with assets of £1bn. I asked him about the government's Big Society vision and he is a big fan. The video has not yet been published on BusinessZone.co.uk but I thought I'd give Social Enterprise Focus readers a sneak preview. Parsons also talks about why business owners should get involved with charitable causes, his work with Sir Richard Branson in Africa and his view on social enterprise. Enjoy!
