Social Enterprise Challenge [2012]

In Feb 2012, InspirEngage partnered with the Education Business Partnership to deliver ‘Social Enterprise Challenge 2012’. The students (who came together from different schools), were given a profile of a failing business and tasked to turn it around adding a social enterprise angle.

They then had to pitch it to a panel, with Melody Hossaini being the head judge.

Having previously seen innovative ideas being let down by poorer presentations, InspirEngage designed an interactive Skills Workshop on Communication Skills and Pitching. The workshop covered all elements of Communication Skills – Speaking, Listening, Body Language and Social Engagement.

The results were notable, with young people using very creative and engaging methods to present their enterprises.

“The annual Walsall Education Business Partnership Social Enterprise Challenge was delivered in partnership with Melody Hossaini, CEO of InspirEngage. Melody delivered a motivational Skills Development workshop aimed at preparing the students for their presentations, gave an inspiring talk about Social Enterprise and joined the panel of judges to choose the winning team.

Her obvious passion for Social Enterprise and her talent in developing young people contributed to a successful event and was deeply appreciated by all attendees. Walsall EBP look forward to working on a number of future projects with InspirEngage.”
