2015 - FEO goes from strength to strength

As we wind down towards the Festive period, it’s great to review the work that FEO has done in 2015 and the impact we have had in Hull & The East Riding.

Our programmes in schools and colleges have been in demand, with over 400 young people between the ages of 14 and 18 taking part in our Masterclass days. We’ve had a successful pilot of our Aspiring Entrepreneur placements - a work experience programme like no other!

We’ve been able to help and inspire local entrepreneurs to develop their attitude, skills and knowledge through a range of bespoke FEO programmes including Ignition, FEO360 and Step Change for Growth.

Our bizweek event sold out, with FEO’s Fantastic Failures one of the highlights of the week. It wasn’t afraid to celebrate the F word and focus on the importance of learning from mistakes and set backs.

Take a look at some of the things that people are saying about FEO and how our members have helped to inspire and support local people.
