The Big Enterprise Education Conversation
Wednesday 30th May, 4-6pm at the Eastern Enterprise Hub.
Have your say.
How do we best equip our young people, here in Suffolk, to face up to these challenges?
The challenges young people face are well documented. Our young people are having to be more creative in the decisions they make about their own futures. We want to support them by leading a culture shift in enterprise education. Business and education need to work together to grow well rounded, articulate entrepreneurial young people, ready to take charge of their own futures. In this panel debate, we will explore how the education and business sectors can combine to provide targeted support to our young people and showcase work of Suffolk’s Enterprise Academy, which harnesses the enterprise responsibility of our local business community to support young entrepreneurs.
Our expert panel will be made up of early stage entrepreneurs, entrepreneurs, business leaders, senior education professionals and politicians.
You are invited to attend our panel debate and lend your voice to transforming enterprise education for young people in Suffolk.
This event is FREE to attend but places are limited. Book your place.
