This week we have been very pleased to have welcomed Prince Gandifere from Archbishop Sentamu Academy onto a work experience placement like no other. Prince has engaged with FEO Martin Lauer, MD of The One Point on an Aspiring Entrepreneur placement.
This unique FEO Inspired programme takes a keen entrepreneurial student and matches them with a willing business owner. Instead of completing more ‘junior’ tasks as part of the work experience, the student instead works with the owner, shadowing them through every diary meeting throughout the week.
Prince said “I have found the week to be inspirational and having met so many different characters, customers and staff. It has made me want to work even harder at school to achieve my full potential and maybe get my trainer business idea off the ground.”
Martin Lauer is an active member of For Entrepreneurs only, who has been running enterprises himself from a very young age.
Martin comments “What better way is there for a young person to learn about being an entrepreneur than to spend some quality time with one. It’s also a great experience for me, to be able to inspire and encourage someone to aspire to follow their dream and start their own business . I wish Prince all the best for the future and who knows, he may become a member of FEO in years to come”.
