In January and May of this year, representatives from TG Eakin Ltd were invited to attend Young Enterprise NI events, having assisted with this event for the past few years now.
YENI is an education charity who help thousands of young people every year to learn about business and the world of work under the guidance of volunteers from local companies. This ensures that young people acquire the skills they will need to become enterprising, creative and commercially aware.
The Mock Interview event that we attended in January was designed to train young people for pending interview situations, where Jeremy Eakin and Elaine Toner acted as the interview panel.
In May, we attended the Trade Fair where the young people formed teams to manufacture and sell products ‘Apprentice’ style, where they had to deal with finance, marketing, sales techniques, etc. Elaine and Jenny McIlroy attended the event and judged each team across various categories.
Once again the event was a huge success and YENI thanked TG Eakin Ltd for our continued support with local schools.
