Young Enterprise students represent Vandyke at the Milton Keynes Young Enterprise Trade Fair.

Our Year 10 Young Enterprise team excelled themselves on Sunday 26th January, giving up part of their weekend to represent their Business Kintsugi, working their stall at the Milton Keynes Young Enterprise Trade Fair.

Alongside lots of other Young Enterprise companies, they worked extremely hard selling their eco-friendly product that they have manufactured; The Peg Pot.

The feedback from customers and potential buyers was fantastic. They loved that the product has multiple uses, and the judges were particularly impressed with the eco-friendly aspect that the students have based their business concept around, of using recycled and recyclable raw materials in the production process.

It was great to see the confidence of the students grow throughout the day, improving on and boosting their communication skills, taking control of the cash-flow throughout the sales process and using their negotiation skills to acquire additional sales from potential customers.

They did an absolutely fantastic job and should be extremely proud of themselves, not only for making their very first sales, but for representing Vandyke to such a high standard!

Well done team Kintsugi!
