We’re proud to be involved and supporting the Entrepreneurs Forum North East Youth Conference called ‘Use Your Loaf’. As an agency, and as individuals, we’re committed to supporting the Forum’s agenda for promoting enterprise and entrepreneurship across the North East.

More information on the ‘Use Your Loaf’ North East Youth Conference:

Enterprise
 and entrepreneurship are high on the agenda, both for schools and the region’s future economic prosperity.

There’s no doubt that the best way to find out what it’s all about — the peaks and pitfalls, the tears and triumphs, the challenges and successes and above all the immense satisfaction of achievement — is to hear straight from the horse’s mouth. Many entrepreneurs claim not to know much! But that belies the fact that they take all opportunities to absorb knowledge and learning from experience and those around them. And whether they’re conscious of it or not, they are experts at applying that knowledge.

So the combination of wisdom, passion, vision, drive, dedication and determination shared by our speakers makes them great role models and ideally placed to inspire a generation.

Use Your Loaf will be a partnership between the key organisations involved in enterprise education across the North East including Enterprise UK, Enterprise Learning Partnerships, Young Enterprise, the Prince’s Trust, Young Chambers, education business partnerships and we’ll celebrate the excellent ideas and commitment of students who have taken part in the many activities and competitions.

Use Your Loaf sits alongside a wide range of activities and resources developed by the Entrepreneurs’ Forum through the Ifwecanyoucan campaign to support enterprise in schools, colleges and universities.
For the last seven years,
the Entrepreneurs’ Forum has worked tirelessly to nurture and promote entrepreneurship in the region.

Following on from the success of our student conferences over the last 4 years – which have attracted speakers including Bob Geldof, Tom Hunter, Tre Azam and Ian Livingstone, in February 2009 the Entrepreneurs’ Forum held its first Youth Conference, which attracted a staggering 1,300 budding young entrepreneurs.

Aimed at ambitious young people from the north east’s schools and collegesUse Your Loaf will follow on from the success of the first Youth Conference, promoting enterprise by bringing students out of the classroom for a day of inspiration, opportunity, knowledge and sharing between young people and entrepreneurs.

The Use Your Loaf Youth Conference will combine an unrivalled speaker program alongside a number of interactive elements to develop the spirit of an entrepreneurial community.

This conference is FREE for pupils and students to attend and we will also be providing rarely cover to ensure that schools and colleges from across the region can take full advantage of this fantastic opportunity. In order to minimise impact on teaching whilst taking full advantage of this fantastic opportunity, we have allocated a budget to contribute to the costs incurred as a result of rarely cover policies.
