Inspirational Five A Day: The Story of the first year of being an entrepreneur
Create, as part of Inverness College UHI and in association with Bridge 2 Business ran a student conference titled, â€˜Get Inspired Across the Highlands and Islandsâ€™ across the UHI college network with speakers being hosted by 6 academic partners. BR. Jill Innes from Storyboard Films talked about her first year in business, looking at the various challenges she has faced and her top tips so far.
This session, which was hosted by North Highland College,UHI, in Thurso not only attracted students from Caithness but was also very well attended in Inverness where the NC Media Studies class came along to the virtual session to soak in the experiential learning from a young entrepreneur.
Jillâ€™s passion, that drove her to create a business that fitted around her love for camerawork and creativity, was transferred to the students who provided the following post event feedback, â€œyou can follow your own personal hobbies to create an interesting career pathâ€ and â€œI will try to find a job I enjoy so that I can be committed to itâ€.
The event reached over 250 students and, due to recordings of the sessions, will reach a great many more.
