Young Enterprise Team win West Kent Finals


Many congratulations to the 13 members of our Young Enterprise Team, 'Verde', who last night beat schools including Tonbridge Grammar, Weald of Kent and Kent College Pembury to win the West Kent Young Enterprise Finals.

Each company of young entrepreneurs gave presentations showcasing highlights and strengths and identifying the more difficult areas of their chosen enterprise. They fielded challenging questions from the judging panel and submitted a Company Report and Business Plan together with individual reports from the sales, finance and marketing functions within their companies.

Speaking after the win Verde's Operations Director Lauren Alger said;

'Winning the West Kent Finals came as a complete shock and surprise to the whole team. It is so nice to have all of our efforts recognised and to know that all of our hard work has paid off and, most importantly, that our product has been a success and popular with the public. I think we won due to the time and effort which we have put into Young Enterprise and committing to giving ourselves the very best chance of success."

Company Secretary Lucy Reid added;

 "The Young Enterprise experience has given us all valuable business, commercial, promotional and sales experience that we will take with us into the world of work."

We wish the team the very best of luck as they go on to represent West Kent at the Kent Finals in May.
