Roedean at The Guild of Entrepreneurs
The Guild of Entrepreneurs Outreach and Guild Showcase 2017
On Wednesday 29 November, Maggie H, Yasmin M (from Year 13 Business) and Ms Stidston travelled to London to represent the School at the Guild of Entrepreneurs Showcase. All the Guild’s various projects and the young entrepreneurs that it supports were invited to attend, to share their stories, and find out about how the support of the Guild is making a difference.
‘On Wednesday evening, Maggie and I represented Roedean School at the Outreach and Guild Showcase 2017. We heard about all their amazing work and the many projects they have planned for 2018. We heard from several companies on how they have helped in different ways, from offering work placements to question & answer sessions. We were glad to learn how the Guild had been very successful with its projects. In times of need, there is a great networking base, which was evident when the Grenfell Tower fires occurred. We heard a very moving story about a tutoring college that was able to provide its services to the many children affected by the tragedy. Through this journey, they gained confidence, self-esteem, and they were able to put their shattered lives back together. This was also a great opportunity for us to network with several entrepreneurs and meet many old Roedeanians which was another highlight of the day!’ Yasmin M
It was a really fantastic evening and the Guild Educational Outreach committee were thrilled with the turn out from Roedean.
