Heather has been a volunteer business adviser at The Marches School in Oswestry for the last 3years and, picked up the award during at the Park Inn Hotel last month and said ‘Naturally I am thrilled to be recognised in this way but my input is just one very small part of this incredible project. Every year I am completely overwhelmed by the work the young people of Shropshire do as part of the Young Enterprise Project and I absolutely believe that the skills and experience they acquire will stand them in great stead for the their future careers.’
She went on to add, ‘developing so called ‘soft skills’ are vitally important for us all and anything that can be done to fast track that learning should be encouraged and celebrated. In the work I do I meet so many people who are seeking to develop their confidence, their communication skills and their leadership skills many of whom would have benefited greatly from a scheme like this.’
