OSFC Young Enterprise group win award for Best Teamwork
Congratulations to our Young Enterprise team, who were presented the ‘Best Teamwork’ award at the recent virtual event.
Georgia (Managing Director), Ben (Marketing), Sian (Digital and Operations) and Mahimun (HR) came up with the fantastic idea of selling Chalkboard Notebooks. The team said, ‘Here at Off the Grid, we pride ourselves in our most powerful luxury, nature, by developing recycled notebooks into blank canvasses for everyone, no matter what age, to express their creativity or streamline their lives through out chalkboard covered notebooks’.
The team had stalls at a number of Christmas markets, including Little Owl Farm and Chester Christmas Market, where they sold the product to the general public, and also attended a PwC Dragon’s Den meeting to improve their skills and show their product off.
The Young Enterprise initiative then moved to remote events, which has had some challenges, but the OSFC team persevered and submitted their business proposal, trade stall pictures and YouTube presentation for the regional final.
Although they didn’t make it through to the Greater Manchester final, the judges awarded them the ‘Best Teamwork’ accolade. Congratulations to team Off the Grid!
