Busi­ness of Enter­prise Win­ners 2020!

Con­grat­u­la­tions to our Year 10 stu­dents (Kizzie Mab­ber­ley, Lois God­frey, Shan­non Har­man, Cameron Har­ris, Lilia Thomson-​Amato) for win­ning the ‘Best Mar­ket­ing Prize’ in the annual county Busi­ness of Enter­prise Com­pe­ti­tion 2020. Prizes include signed cer­tifi­cates, £50 Ama­zon voucher for each stu­dent and a tro­phy for the school.

Com­ments from the winners:

Our idea was called ‘Reliance Watch’. We first thought of our idea and how we would make the mate­ri­als, develop the mar­ket­ing and cal­cu­late prices. Shan­non and Cameron drew and designed the watch. Since this watch is for the deaf and blind we decided to con­tact the KAB (Kent Asso­ci­a­tion for the Blind) to see what they thought of the idea and they loved it and wanted us to present it to them. This watch is made to help the deaf and blind through­out day to day life and it has a rounded tri­an­gle shape to stand out to make it unique. To show it to EBP (East Kent Busi­ness Part­ner­ship) we decided to make a pre­sen­ta­tion. We had to present it (back in Feb­ru­ary) in the school hall in front of our whole year group and 4 judges from EBP. We were selected as the run­ners up from our school and our busi­ness idea was entered into the County com­pe­ti­tion against all the other schools in the area. To improve our pre­sen­ta­tion, dur­ing lock­down, we made a short video explain­ing our ideas and pre­sen­ta­tion fur­ther. We feel very excited, over­whelmed and grate­ful that we won the ‘Best Mar­ket­ing’ prize and we are happy that we got the oppor­tu­nity to take part in this competition.
