Description

An Enterprise Day delivered by Adam Corbally who will start the day with a motivational talk around how he got to where he is today. Students will then be challenged with working in groups to develop a product or service which could start off on a market stall. Adam will rally the troops and make sure that everyone is up for the challenge in true “Apprentice” style. Each team member is allocated a specific role from team leader to marketing manager, finance, advertising etc. Teams will then work throughout the day on their ideas ready to present their ideas in the Dragon’s Den.

The “Dragons Den” pitch can include an advert, slides, role play, literally any way they think is best to get their message across. The most creative ideas will have the opportunity of winning a prize.

The judges deliberate and decide on a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place with prizes for the top 3, spot prizes for individuals who have shown enthusiasm throughout the day and appraisals for all teams.

Includes prizes & trophies throughout the day along with lunch and refreshments.

70 places available.
