Helping Launch a CoVE

This week is Enterprise Week, and what better way to celebrate it than helping Leicester College/South Leicestershire College launch their Centre of Vocational Excellence in Enterprise at a breakfast event this morning.

Another last minute gig (this time it was Levi Roots who pulled out), but it was great to be asked to step in and to have the opportunity to hopefully inspire some of the students to follow an entrepreneurial path once they have completed their vocational training.

If I think back to when I was young the words 'Entrepreneur' and 'Enterprise' weren't even on the agenda in the careers discussions so it is brilliant that we now have so many initiatives in this country to encourage budding entrepreneurial talent.

I hope more youngsters will start to believe that they too have what it takes to become an entrepreneur and take the plunge to start their own business.
