I moved on again to 'The Big Conversation' at Leeds Metropolitan University...

'The Big Conversation: Turning Work Experience into Work Inspiration' was hosted by Stefan Barden, CEO at Northern Foods and Chair of Business in the Community Yorkshire and the Humber. It involved fifty young people and fifty Chief Executives talking about how we could improve work experience, which is currently a rather hit and miss experience for too many young people, and turn it into an inspiring experience which helps develop young people's understanding and skills. The group were also addressed by Liz Needleman, Regional Director, Business in the Community, Tom Riordan, Chief Executive of Yorkshire Forward and by Ed Balls MP, Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families.
