Event description

Could you help us to celebrate Global Entrepreneurship Week

We are looking for local entrepreneurs and business leaders to speak in assemblies from Monday 16th November to Friday 20th November. Ideally two entrepreneurs per day, each to speak for 5-8 minutes. We would like you to share the highs and lows of setting up a business and help our youngsters to understand that entrepreneurship is a career option they could consider.
We will also be asking for volunteers to stay on for period 1 (9-10am) to speak in more detail to our Business Studies pupils. This worked really well last year so hope you can help out.

If not, thanks anyway for taking the time to consider this.
