Date: 25th November 2019

On the 25th of November 2019 Enactus Teesside hosted their first advisory board meeting with members of support network in attendance where the team presented the advisors with an update of the team’s progress, projects, and challenges. 

Our Project Leaders Kenrick and Caolan presented the Re-Serve and Mutual projects, respectively.

It was a good learning experience for the team as they all learnt what aspects of the projects that had not been considered and should going forward to reduce the likeliness of problems arising in future. 

We want to thank the advisors who attended Michael, Jonny and Steve your advice was positively received and we look to implement your suggestions in our projects.

On the 2nd and 3rd of November the Teesside team attended the annual Enactus UK Project training weekend held at Glasgow university home of Enactus Glasgow.

This weekend is one of the biggest in the Enactus calendars as all the Enactus UK team undergo training from Enactus UK staff and Enactus Alumni Members on the project and innovation streams which aim to improve the sustainability of their projects and provide them with insight into making creative events and activities that can further their team growth, income and project impact.

The opening and closing ceremonies of the training weekend were very motivating and a massive congratulations to all the teams that competed in the Summer Action competition.
