Young Enterprise Presentation Day
I’ve not thought much about the Love Life Live Lent actions this weekend - but in the spirit of gratuitous giving, I think today’s YE event was exemplary. We had 60-odd students from the nine YE companies presenting their successes to a full auditorium. The standard was very high this year and I was delighted that the company from The Misbourne won the Premier Company award with their internet radio station. They are broadcasting 24 hours a day from their studio in the school: they don’ have to attend all the time because they have computer-based broadcasting systems which play out their prepared playlist and pre-recorded links. They are claiming 70,000 hits on their web site and 2,000 listeners. There’s a link on the right.
The gratuitous giving link is the team of business advisers who give their time and skill to support these students. Each YE company has two or three experienced business people to advise them - they only advise, the students run the companies. But it’s still a significant commitment of up to 2 hours per week in term time. However, when they see how well the students perform at an event like today’s they are invariable inspired to continue.
There’s a link to the Chiltern YE web site on the right and we’ll be putting some pictures on the site in a day or so.
