RBS WOW Unleashing Enterprise winners

The winning teams from the Unleashing Enterprise programme, delivered by WOW in association with RBS

RBS Unleashing Enterprise Celebration Event      

The Forum in Norwich staged something similar to ‘Dragon’s Den’ on the 2nd December when teams from schools were invited to pitch their enterprise ideas to a panel of judges.

The students had taken part in the Unleashing Enterprise programme funded by RBS over the last two years,  and worked hard to promote their ideas by producing brilliant PowerPoint presentations supporting their projects.

With pitches down to a pat, the presentations began and our very own Head of Enterprise Services at NWES, Andrew Wilson, had the difficult task of being on the judge’s panel, together with John Rowe, Business Banking Manager from RBS in Norwich.

The Unleashing Enterprise programme, delivered by the Nwes WOW,  invited teams of school pupils aged 13-15 years old to bid for a contract to deliver a local festival.  The teams were given coaching from members of the business community.
Andrew said ” We had a really difficult job deciding who should be placed 1st, 2nd and 3rd.  The teams had worked extremely hard and had come up with some interesting and innovative ideas.”

The results were finally announced after quite a debate, and the teams took prizes back to their schools:

1st Place:  Downham Market Academy with their ‘World War II Bash’ – a 40’s themed festival with all profits going to the charity, Help for Heroes

1st prize – iPad Air

2nd Place: Wymondham High Academy with ‘Yum Fest’ – celebrating food from around the world

2nd prize – Digital camera

3rd Place – Framingham Earl High School with their idea,  ‘Haystax’  – an agricultural themed festival

3rd prize – 2 Raspbery Pi

Congratulations to all who took part, and to the winners!
