Blue Skies is a large-scale multi-media, gig-style event designed to show young people that running your own business is a realistic career option, by bringing students face to face with Britain's young entrepreneurs in a lively, interactive and fun environment. The event involves music, video and a quiz with prizes. Since 2002, more than 50,000 young people have taken part in this national roadshow and it has visited more than 25 towns and cities across the UK.
Blue Skies was developed by the national business education charity, businessdynamics, now part of the Enterprise Education Trust: www.enterprise-education.org.uk. The next Blue Skies roadshow is in the summer term and its route will depend on the funding available.
The roadshow has always been a free event, but with the funding for Enterprise Education now going directly to schools, charges are likely.
Schools interested in attending a Blue Skies event during the summer term should call the event hotline on 020 7261 4514 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
