Our Managing Director Paul Woods was out and about in London town yesterday to attend the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy annual graduation ceremony. The event took place at The Freemasons Hall in Covent Garden and was attended by the graduates and business leaders involved in the various courses run by the Enterprise Academy at colleges throughout the United Kingdom. And as you can see from the photo above, he got the opportunity to meet the TV Dragon himself!
Paul’s attendance at the graduation ceremony is part of his continuing involvement with the Enterprise Academy, which was founded in 2009 in order to encourage more entrepreneurial activity in the United Kingdom. Paul has served as a mentor at The Enterprise Academy at Oldham College for nearly two years now. By delivering master classes and entrepreneurial talks, business leaders like Paul aim to equip young people with the skills and mindset needed to run their own business, or provide them with the business acumen to succeed in employment.
Speaking on the event and his long term involvement with the Enterprise Academy, Paul stated; ‘yet again the graduation ceremony was a pleasure to attend. It was great to have the opportunity to meet Peter on this occasion and chew the fat about the good things the Enterprise Academy has achieved'.
