The Real Conversation
The aim is to get a better understanding of each other’s views and opinions on various policy issues.
The events are highly interactive and engaging with questions alongside facilitated table discussions. It is vital that we get the right mix of people at the event so we have a balanced view across all stakeholders.
The next 'Real Conversation' will be taking place on:
Thursday 1 October 2015, Liberty Stadium, Swansea
Discussion topic: Youth Entrepreneurship in Wales
About the event
The Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy (YES), is the Welsh Government’s commitment to ensuring young people across Wales are equipped with entrepreneurial skills and attitudes so they can fulfil their potential, whatever choices they make in their future working lives.
Consequently, we want to understand young people’s attitudes and values to entrepreneurship; how their education can support the development of skills and reflect on their ambitions for business; and understand the barriers that may limit their decision to start a business.
During the session, we will also explore employers and entrepreneurs’ views on working with young people to develop business in Wales.
Key aims for the event are to:
- reflect on young people’s attitudes and understanding of entrepreneurship
- explore the relevance of entrepreneurial skills for life (not just business start-up)
- make connections to skill development and the role of education
- understand the barriers to business start-up and challenge perceptions
- examine the disconnect between high aspiration for entrepreneurship and lower levels of actual business start-up
- improve understanding of opportunities and support available.
For young people (aged 14-25)
This event is a chance for young people to meet employers and entrepreneurs and be inspired by their success stories. It also provides an opportunity for young people to speak directly with decision makers and ‘tell it like it is’ about their understanding of entrepreneurship, and the barriers that may limit their decision to start a business.
For employers and entrepreneurs
This event is a fantastic opportunity for you to help raise awareness of entrepreneurial skills and inspire young people through your own experience. You will also gain honest insight into young people’s understanding of entrepreneurship and the issues they face, in addition to benefiting from networking with peers and policy decision makers.
For other professionals
We want to ensure that young people across Wales are equipped with entrepreneurial skills and attitudes so they can fulfil their potential whatever choices they make in their future working lives.
We have a limited number of places for other professionals with an interest in this agenda; prioritised for those who can bring along groups of young people, or who can facilitate employer engagement.
If you are interested in, or are already supporting young people with enterprise, we are keen for you to get in touch.
