Testimonials

We are proud to work with some amazing businesses and individuals throughout the East of England. Here's what some of students and partners say about us:

  • "The LGA Programme covered some good ground. There were people in attendance who were right at the beginning stages of their journeys, whereas I'm at the final stages of setting up the housing development company in West Suffolk. The types of things we covered were familiar to me, but you can always learn new things in these situations, so it was a useful experience. I particularly enjoyed hearing from individuals from local authorities who spoke to us about their journeys (they have been there and done it) in an enthused and passionate way. It was just as beneficial to be in front of local business professionals from a variety of different fields (E.G. finance and marketing) who gave us a totally different perspective."

    Jonathon Geel, Service Manager, Housing Development and Partnerships at West Suffolk Council

  • "I initially heard about the Entrepreneurial Leadership within Local Government (LGA) Programme through a few people who had previously taken part in the course - they recommended it to me. I found it to be useful but challenging at times; it was exhilarating and frustrating in places due to the nature of the barriers we were trying to work through. Ultimately, there were some key points that I'll definitely take away and try to apply to my work."

    Peter Guddy, Service Manager, West Suffolk Council

The first hand advice has been incredibly useful; hearing first hand what entrepreneurs and business people have done and been through has allowed us to learn from their various experiences. We have also both has fantastic work placements, which have allowed us express our own ideas and experience what being a part of a small business is like.”

  • “I would just like to say thank you for inviting us to be included in the Enterprise Academy 2015 live projects; as a business we have benefitted from having the students look at this area of the recruitment programmes and now understand better what students want to know from us, and how. I was lucky enough to get two great students and hopefully this is reflected in the feedback.”

    I would like formally thank you for your efforts, support, professionalism and dynamism to ensuring that the new Certificate of Enterpirse venture went so well.
    From planning, to programme design, session management and facilitating the employer projects, through graduation, your contribution has been invaluable.
    My thanks are also on behalf of the silent consumer, who will appreciate what they have experienced and the personal development they have achieved much later when they are adults, able to reflect on the access to opportunity afforded to them.”
