Thank you to the Business Bunker Show for this article:

Ready to pass on your business advice? Could you inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs?

Perhaps you have thought about hiring an apprentice but are not sure if young people have the skills you need for your business.

This third FSB Skills 30:30 event will give you the chance the forge strong links with a local school, share your experience of running a business and meet potential young employees.

While students take part in workshops, business owners can find out about the benefits of hiring an apprentice and the new Kent County Council ‘Guild’ initative. Then, both groups meet together for facilitated speed-networking.


WHO SHOULD COME? Business owners, business managers, employers, HR managers, recruitment company owners.



‘Loved being part of this event. The Academy were really keen to work with employers and the FSB to offer a real understanding to students about the world of work and employer expectations. The students were receptive and really engaging. It was fun and a very worthwhile event to be a part of.’Deborah Turner, You Image Consultancy

‘Students have told me that both the workshops were excellent and they found the speed networking event also really useful.’ Lesley Tannock, Longfield Academy


If you care about nurturing and developing talent and building a strong, sustainable business, this event is for you.
