Success at Westminster Enterprise Course

Is it really possible to think up a brand new business idea and develop a business plan in one day?

Well 33 WAES students proved that you can when they joined our CEO Colin Crooks MBE for an action-packed Enterprise Masterclass.

The enthusiastic WAES students came from a wide range of study areas, learning skills from Graphic Design and Fashion to Hair & Beauty.

Their challenge was to create a business plan for tackling an important social issue from scratch using Tree Shepherd’s 3M© concept

Motivation         your vision and personal driver

Market                your customers

Mechanics          how you deliver to your customers

Very quickly the students grouped around some of the most important challenges that we face as a   society: healthy eating in schools, activities for young people, services for disabled people, well-being for people in poverty and environmentally friendly packaging.

The 5 groups had to develop a business plan for their idea and justify how they would run a sustainable social enterprise.  The day culminated in a series of group presentations to a panel of judges, just like Dragon’s Den! The panel was made up of senior staff from WAES and Westminster Council as well as a  local business owner.

After a gruelling Q&A by the Dragons the winning team was Angel Hair Salon whose plan was to create a salon that specialised in catering for people with disabilities!

The feedback from the day was excellent:

“Colin was inspiring and has single-handedly motivated and encouraged me to try harder and succeed”

“Extremely interesting and informative”

“Well delivered, easy to focus on each section”

“The whole room was engaged in the activities – very professional”

We thank the WAES staff for their impeccable organisation of the event and due to it’s success we plan to run more in the new year!
