With the new year starting for the 2012 Young Enterprise Company Programme we thought it a good idea to have get together for the business advisors to share good practice, hints and tips and help get the most out of the whole experience.

Young Enterprise – North Yorkshire
Business Advisor’s Network Opportunity

Wednesday 3rd Oct 17:00 – 19:00
York Science Park, Hesslington, YO10 5DG

Message from the Chair:

As we enter into another exciting academic year for the flagship Company Programme and Team Programme, I would like to say a very big thank from the North Yorkshire Board to all our volunteer advisors for their continued ongoing support and a very big welcome to any advisors that are new to the young enterprise family this year.

It goes without saying that without the support and valuable time given by you our advisors we would not be able to do what we are doing here in North Yorkshire.

As I am sure you are aware, this year we have a record number of schools participating thanks to Jill Tinsley’s hard work and it promises to be a very exciting year and I look forward to the trade fairs and competitions.

This year the charity will be entering its 50th year of running and having a profound effect on the attitudes of young people towards work, this landmark birthday will provide an exciting opportunity to market the great work that Young Enterprise continues to do in North Yorkshire. With the current climate and the high number of young people who are now unemployed, it is even more important that we reach out and help change the attitudes of as many young people as we can over the coming months, giving them the skills to prepare them to cope with a difficult job market.

We thought it would be a great idea to start the year with a get together for our advisors, with the aim to network, help inform, pass on good practice and put us in the best position within North Yorkshire and give us the chance to showcase Yorkshire talent and resilience throughout the trade fairs and competitions.

With this in mind I would like to invite you all to a get together, kindly hosted by York Science Park on the 3rd Oct between 17:00 and 19:00.

The Format for the evening will be very casual;

• Short networking until 5:30 (refreshments provided)
• Opening from Chair.
• Brief talk from one of our link teacher on the benefits, hints tips and their personal experience.
• Brief talk from one of our experienced advisors, on hit’s tips and their personal experience.
• Open the floor for questions, debate and discussions.
• Closing from Chair at around 6:30
• Informal Networking until 19:00

I am hoping that this will be a great opportunity for all the advisors and I’m looking forward to meeting everyone.
