Meee at #MENTRO17
Last week Sid was thrilled to be invited, on behalf of the Meee Programme, to talk at Ysgol y Preseli in Pembrokeshire as part of #Mentro17; a day of talks and sessions focussed on business and enterprise. The day started with team building activities before a series of interesting and varied talks began. Meee was lucky enough to give two talks through the course of the day, the first was on the topic of imagination and creativity, and how we are all creative all the time, sometimes we just don't realise it; during this Sid also spoke about the importance of education, not just in school, but throughout our whole lives.
Sid was also honoured to be asked to give the key note speech of the day, in which he talked about the Meee programme and how it is important to understand and believe in who we are; and that our individuality is to be celebrated, variety being a wonderful thing, not something to be ashamed of. This is an important message that we want to spread far and wide so that everyone can better understand who they are and what they are capable of. It was a true privilege to have the chance to speak about a topic so close to our hearts.
“It was a pleasure to be part of #MENTRO17. What a brilliant way to engage with younger people about being in business and creative thinking. Let’s have more events like this.”
The whole day was a fantastic for both students and invited speakers and Meee was thrilled to be involved. It was an opportunity to talk, share stories and learn about new ideas. A day of communication and connection. The other talks were given on topics such as; 'Knowing what you don't know', 'Telling the story of your idea', and 'Finding and idea/purpose'. These were all messages of inspiration and hope, both of which will stick with participants for a life time.
The Meee programme is honoured to have been involved in such a great session and we would like to thank Ysgol y Preseli for inviting us and putting on such an amazing event. It is amazing what we can achieve when we spread the message of positivity!
