  Ellie is an Overnight Entrepreneur!Congratulations to Ellie in Year 8 who took part in a Young Enterprise weekend residential entrepreneurship challenge as part of the DICE Project at Lorne House.

Over an intense but fun weekend of activity where teams made Halloween crafts to sell, Ellie was selected as one of the three best participants. The Young Enterprise leaders praised her for engaging with customers, outlining the benefits of products and offering excellent customer service. 

Jonathan Twinem, Development Manager at Young Enterprise NI said of all three of the students whose sales techniques stood out:

“I would go so far as to say [they demonstrated] some of the best sales techniques I have ever seen.”

Congratulations to Ellie (BASFC), Ellie (Priory) and Chloe (Glenlola).
