Young Enterprise, the UK’s leading enterprise and financial education charity, appointed us to deliver an events programme that would help re-invigorate and shift perceptions towards the brand. We have continued to work together since 2013, including producing their annual Company of the Year Awards Ceremony, and driving an audience of over 400 leading influencers in the start-up and business communities.
- Injecting some extra glamour into the ceremony by making it a red carpet awards do at the Southbank's BFI.
- Pulling in some inspiring speakers with great youth appeal and social reach including Dragons' Den's Piers Linney, SBTV's Jamal Edwards, Glamour Editor Jo Elvin, The Voice winner Jermain Jackman, WAH Nails Founder Sharmadein Reid, and The Apprentice star Bianca Miller. Plus brands including Facebook, LinkedIn, Buzzfeed and Jack Wills.
- Gaining the support of BBC Breakfast Reporter Steph McGovern, who hosted the awards, and secured Young Enterprise live coverage on BBC Breakfast in front of 7 million viewers.
“Belinda and her team at Forgather have designed and managed many events for Young Enterprise. The results for each one exceeded my (high) expectations and all our guests & sponsors went away inspired and excited by what they had seen, heard and done. Belinda is a great team leader that inspires confidence and re-booking!”
