How often do you make the most of your time? I was recently given the opportunity to be on the judging panel for the Inner East London heat of the Young Enterprise Company Programme Awards (YECPA) – a beneficiary of the RG Foundation.

The YECPA challenged students, aged between 15 to 17, to come up with the idea for a company over a six-month period and showcase it to the judging panel, which I was a part of. Teams ranged in size from four to 17 students, coming from a variety of schools in the Inner East London area and representing a diverse mix of backgrounds and abilities.
