This week at Skills Fest, more than 50 Apprentice Nation members met with industry execs from BT, Lucozade, Google, Samsung, Adam&EveDDB and more; but this wasn’t just a networking event, it was about building real connections and learning new future-shaping skills…
Sounds cool! Tell me about the venue.
It’s thanks to our lead partner BT that we took over the tower for the day. Attendees were even treated to a performance and Q&A session with R&B star Mnelia on the top deck!
Woah! The top of the BT Tower?
Apprentice Nation is all about the top deck, my friend:
– Views ✅
– Superstar performer ✅
– First class industry execs ✅
– Future-shaping discussions ✅
– Sing on-stage with Mnelia ✅
How did it work out?
Following introductory sessions with our amazing Skills Leaders – Louis, Caspar and Anna-Marie – members got to speak personally with specially chosen industry execs, getting advice on their next steps and how to show their best self in an interview situation.
There was even time for a bit of wellbeing and relaxation, overlooking the city.
This is what they had to say about it:
Thanks so much for doing the Apprentice Nation Skills Fest. Had the time of my life!
There are so many amazing opportunities!
I feel like the day has shaped my future by opening more doors.
Sounds incredible. Don’t tell me… you ended the day with pizza?
What did Mnelia have to say?
This artist is all about self-confidence and teamwork:
Believe in yourself, above all else. Whatever you want to say, say it. As long as you believe it, then speak out.
People who are successful all did the same things; there’s a framework. Be punctual, be respectful, be nice! Smiling goes a long way.
Mnelia is THE BEST!
She sure is. She also recommended this awesome book to get your creativity flowing: Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon
Can’t wait to get even more inspired!
