Global Entrepreneur Week 2010

On 14th November Level 3 IT and Business 2nd year students set off from Leeds Train Station to London Kings Cross Station for a two day event with three of their tutors, Arif Younis, Linda Littler and Eric Cockburn.

Day 1 combined history, culture and enterprise and began with a visit to The London Dungeons and incorporated some of the key sights of the capital.

Day 2 began bright and early with a short trip across London on the underground to the 4 Entrepreneurs Conference at the Leicester Square West End Odeon.

The conference itself was chaired by Dermot Murnaghan from Sky News and Eggheads and he made sure the itinerary schedule ran smoothly.

Tristram Mayhew was the first speaker of the day and he gave a lively presentation of his business “Go Ape”.

Multi award winning designer Natasha Faith inspired students with a talk about her jewellery business La Diosa which she started four years ago at the age of 19.

Adam Goodyer impressed the students with a lively presentation about his business Concert Live. Students were interested to learn that he had previously been knocked back by the Dragons on BBC’s Dragons’ Den but has since gone on to have a successful multi million pound business.

Louis Barnett, started his business Chokolit at the tender age of 12. He is still only 18 but already travels worldwide promoting his business and the awareness of global climate change.

All in all a motivating, challenging, inspirational and fun weekend, enjoyed by everyone and funded in partnership with Aim Higher, students and staff. A special thank you to Anna Geldert for all her help and support in making the event an outstanding success
