Entrepreneurship & Enterprise Conference, London, 18 September 2013

The theme of this year’s conference is:

Encouraging a more entrepreneurial culture for educational impact
& economic growth’

NTRL’s 3rd Annual National Conference is focused on supporting the development of a wider entrepreneurial culture from primary upwards through all stages of education to stimulate entrepreneurial activity in the UK.

Evidence shows we need to engage with young people early on through the education system to give them hands-on business experiences. This encourages them to recognise that starting their own business can be a rewarding and attractive career option.  We need to ensure that enterprise is at the heart of the education system encouraging entrepreneurial spirit in all age groups of the emerging workforce. The education sector should build on theory by encouraging their learners to engage with real businesses, real entrepreneurs and related learning activities.

This important conference builds on the foundations of the first two events.  Entrepreneurship & Enterprise in the context of Education, which continues to be both high profile and of major importance in the development of communities, businesses, society and the economy. The event will enable delegates from education, business support, professional and network organisations to meet and to learn, share and act on the latest developments and thinking on enterprise education, creation and support.

We are delighted to welcome back Professor David Rae as conference chair. David is a leading innovator and researcher in learning and education for enterprise and entrepreneurship at the University of Lincoln. In addition to chairing the conference David will also be delivering an inspirational plenary address on International dimensions of Enterprise & Entrepreneurship Education. Other speakers include Gemma Peck covering BIS policy and Kevin Byrne with his exciting view on motivation and business creation.

The afternoon of the conference provides a stimulating mix of good-practice case studies which will showcase:

  • Supporting start-up and early stage businesses
  • Partnership working: linking with the local economy
  • Achieving Excellence in Innovation and Entrepreneurship

Delegates will also have the opportunity to attend a series of interactive workshops sessions throughout the day, which will provide practical ideas, tools, techniques and effective strategies to assist in the development of new enterprise projects, initiatives and entrepreneurial thinking.

We look forward to welcoming you to the third conference, and the first in London, continuing the focus on a 'can-do' and action-centred approach to entrepreneurial development.
