Young Enterprise long service award
I’ve always been passionate about throwing myself into the local community and one role I’m believe to make such a difference to young people is the Young Enterprise Scheme.
Young Enterprise is getting a much deserved higher profile now and I think this has a lot to do with TV programmes like Dragon’s Den and The Apprentice.
It was a real honour and a surprise though to receive a long service award from YE Harrow and Brent where I’ve been serving on the Board since March 2007.
I thoroughly enjoyed mentoring the young people running their YE businesses, judging the trade stands at the competition and recently it’s been extremely rewarding delivering the finance training using the unique YE cloud based accounting software in the after school sessions.
If you’re a business owner who hasn’t considered getting involved and would love to mentor bussing entrepreneurs or supporting your local YE board I’d really recommend you look into it. http://www.young-enterprise.org.uk/
