Beyond Business winners at Investec College Days

Published: 16 Feb 2017


Beyond Business' College is a series of Investec volunteer led masterclasses tailored to the needs of the winning social enterprises for that year, topics include project management IT, Marketing, HR and others.

Beyond Business new social entrepreneurs started the New Year off with 3 days at out Investec College in January getting together with some BB alumni who shared their experiences of running a social business. We are also given access to a wide range of professional skills by our Investec volunteers; it was as it has been in previous years a fantastic learning and sharing experience for all those taking part.

Feedback from the sessions was incredibly positive.

‘Great to hear first-hand experience about recruitment, part-time/full-time, and setting deadlines – all good advice!’

‘HT – the best session of the day!’ ‘Great to be given HR advice’

Sessions at the 3 college days included HR for start-ups, contracts, IT security. A speed marketing event was very popular, this involved our 2016 winners asking questions of Investec’s events team, direct marketing team, social media team and other questions on how to best promote their businesses.

Again feedback on the session was incredibility positive

‘This 1-2-1 time was SO useful – the most useful thing yet!’
