The Institute of Directors (IoD) is hosting its biannual Future Leaders Summit this week, with Sixth Form and College of Further Education students all gathering to hear from local business leaders.
The free to attend summit will be held on Thursday 24 November between 15:00 and 18:00 at law firm Mourant’s Rotunda in St Peter Port.
Laurence Kemball-Cook (pictured), who at 28 became an award-winning founder and CEO of Pavegan Systems (an innovative clean technology company), will deliver the keynote speech.
The event will include a career panel of young local businessmen and women from the digital, creative and finance sectors who will share their stories of the paths they have taken, their influences, and the people who have had the most impact on them.
The Ana Leaf Foundation is the headline sponsor for the event. Hayley de Putron, a Trustee for the Ana Leaf Foundation, said: "We are proud to once again sponsor this event which helps students discover the range of opportunities Guernsey has to offer and inspire them. Businesses continue to experience huge changes. We would love to see our young islanders play their part in finding the solutions for these challenges."
Wendy Dorey, Chair of the IoD Guernsey Branch, said: "The IoD is thrilled to stage the second Future Leaders Summit which aims to inspire students to “think big” about the career opportunities open to them, and showcase the wealth of opportunities available on-island for the next generation of business leaders.
"We are passionate about supporting and inspiring young people as leaders of the future. If students can be inspired from the very beginning of their careers, they are more likely to perform well at work - leading to greater success and job satisfaction."
