“Just a quick thank you for recommending Lee Thomas. He came along to our Big Enterprise Experience yesterday for his speech and from reading the students' feedback forms, many of them commented that Lee's presentation was their favourite part of the day! He engaged well with the students and participated fully in the workshop. I would definitely Industry Insiders again.”
Joanne Walton, Enterprise Hub Coordinator, West Cheshire College

From meeting teachers, what we've found is that there is a real lack of people from industries coming into the classroom and talking to young people. We've also found that many youngsters feel there isn't enough time spent on giving pupils options on what career they should go into.
Each expert is hand-picked by the company and chosen on their length of service in their chosen field, their major achievements in their career so far and their ability to work confidently with young people. We pride ourselves on providing you a first class, yet affordable service and we hope you'll be delighted with what we can do for your school.
Our experts work in lots of different areas of the curriculum to support and enhance work and give a real life perspective to modules and how to use the skills they learn in the classroom in the workplace.
The talks are extremely good for boosting confidence and pupil aspirations and teachers love the fact that students start to think about the future paths they want to take when they leave school.
The talks are extremely affordable for school budgets and the prices have been set by teachers themselves to ensure they are as cost-effective as possible.
The expert talks and workshops bring the magic of the workplace to the classroom and give pupils a great overview of what it is like to work in industry.
