Two of Northern Ireland’s most promising young entrepreneurs are set to represent Northern Ireland at a global young leader’s conference in Canada on August 10-14.
Seventeen year old sixth form students Emilie Vose, from Bangor and Charlotte Campbell from Coleraine were selected by entrepreneurship skills charity Young Enterprise to attend the Next Generation Leaders Forum (NGL) having started their own businesses with the support of the charity over the last 10 months. The upcoming trip has been made possible with the support of World Travel Centre and Bank of Ireland.
The annual event, held at Trent University in Ontario, connects top young leaders from around the world, who have taken part in Junior Achievement-Young Enterprise business start-up programmes with established business leaders to tackle real business challenges faced by global organisations.
Young Enterprise Chief Executive Carol Fitzsimons commented “The NGL experience will inspire these two promising young women to develop a truly global outlook and bring that vision home to Northern Ireland. Emilie and Charlotte have shown us that they have the potential to be the business leaders of the future and we expect this to be hugely beneficial to their development.”
