Ready to pass on your business advice? Could you inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs?

Perhaps you have thought about hiring an apprentice but are not sure if young people have the skills you need for your business.

“Get involved now if you have the chance!”

This fourth FSB Skills 30:30 event will give you the chance the forge strong links with a local school, share your experience of running a business and meet potential young employees. While students take part in workshops, business owners find out about hiring an apprentice and the new Kent County Council ‘Guild’ initative. Then both groups meet together for facilitated speed-networking.

WHO SHOULD COME? Business owners, business managers, employers, HR managers, recruitment company owners.

Pam Manwaring, Orchard Garage “I really enjoyed it. I know some of the students were nervous, but they conducted themselves so well. It was brilliant to hear their plans and ambitions and so good to hear so many with entrepreneurial spirit. Very impressed.”

Darrel Linehan, The Marketing Link – “Being a Dad, a business owner and someone who over the years has taken on apprentices and worked with young adults starting out at work, I found the Skills 30:30 program to be an amazing platform for businesses to break their perceptions of young people. Talking to this inspiring, passionate and excited next generation not only gave me confidence in the people who will be running things when I am older, but also allowed me to share some of my thoughts and ideas with them. If each of them takes one thing from the day that helps them it was all worth it. Being involved doesn’t mean you have to employ a student; however it will allow you to start seeing how they could now or in the future be a valuable asset to your business. Get involved if you get the chance!” .

Deborah Turner, You Image Consultancy – “I loved being part of this event. The Academy were really keen to work with employers and FSB to offer a real understanding to students about the world of work and employer expectations. The students were receptive and really engaging. It was fun and a very worthwhile event to be a part of.”

If you care about nurturing and developing talent and building a strong, sustainable business, this event is for you. 

Refreshments provided. Parking available within the school grounds.

Hosted by Wilmington Academy in partnership with FSB and Kent Business Radio.
