Year 9 Explore EntrepreneurshipLocal entrepreneur, Darragh Neely from Darragh Neely Design Works in Bangor shared his expertise about starting his own business, branding and creative careers with Year 9 pupils. His visit was part of a session run by Young Enterprise to encourage pupils to flex their entrepreneurial muscles.

The workshop explores what makes an entrepreneur and what it means to be enterprising. Case studies on young entrepreneurs and famous entrepreneurs led to a teamwork activity where pupils come up with a creative game (board game or an app) using the 4 P’s of marketing (product, price, place and promotion).
