Engaging Education Appointed as Campaign Leaders
For the third year running the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership and Hull City Council have appointed young entrepreneurs Engaging Education to lead on its campaign for Global Entrepreneurship Week in November.
The company was appointed in order to promote the programme and achieve another high profile campaign before and during Global Entrepreneurship Week. They also have an understanding of the aspirations of young people as well as its national reputation of being able to attract business support for young people's projects and activities.
Global Entrepreneurship Week is all about embracing innovation, imagination and creativity. It showcases enterprise, opening up new opportunities for young people across Hull, the UK and the world.
Councillor Martin Mancey, Portfolio Holder, said: "I believe that if we are to engage young people in the enterprise agenda it is essential that we know what they think. Engaging Education have the right tools to provide us with that information.
"I am pleased to see that the organisers have developed a high profile campaign to attract support and raise finances for the week's activities and its great news that major businesses like Smith and Nephew, Swift Group and Sangwin Group are supporting this year alongside young entrepreneurs.
"Whether you're in education, business, the public sector or a charity, everyone should get involved in Global Entrepreneurship Week. It's about developing people's enterprise skills and helping them achieve their ambitions and I urge the city to get behind the Week of activities."
Ross Bennett, Director of Engaging Education, said: "We are delighted to be appointed by Hull City Council and the Hull Youth Enterprise Partnership to lead on their campaign to promote enterprise to the city's young people during the week and in the run up to GEW 2016, and to lead on their campaign to attract high profile speakers and finance for the week.
