On Wednesday 2 May our enterprise team, Willow and Fern, attended the Sussex Finals in Horsham. We had previously attended the Arun and Chichester finals the week before along with two other teams from Bishop Luffa. At this we came away with four awards; the best team interview, the best trade stand, the Ivor Page award and the best company. This meant that we progressed through to the Sussex Finals.
Overall, we had a great day and it was so rewarding to see that our hard work had paid off. We were required to set up our stand, had a group interview and gave a presentation about our company and the journey we had come on. It was also interesting to hear a talk from Kevin Byrne, founder of Checkatrade.com. We were proud to come away with an award for the best team interview as this reflects our strong team work and communication.
We are continuing our business in order to sell our remaining stock by attending summer fairs and events in the following months.
Young Enterprise has been an amazing opportunity for us all, we have grown as individuals and come away with valuable experience of the world of business.
