    Presenter bio

The need to support and develop young entrepreneurs in schools has never been greater. By cultivating and embracing a start-up culture of entrepreneurship, teachers and leaders can prepare students to succeed in the rapidly changing new world of work.

This webinar will look at the core components of effective entrepreneurship programs in schools that are able to support and develop enterprise skills that can be adapted to most school contexts.

This session will share strategies to create and imbed a culture of entrepreneurship and discuss examples of best practice that can be emulated in a variety of settings. We will also dive deeper into the concept of social enterprise and building frameworks that enable students to become positive change agents in their communities.
