The team at Blue Sky Systems love giving back to the local community and last week our Commercial Director, Paul Smith, gave up his time to work with Bottisham Village College on their hugely successful Enterprise Day designed at challenging Year 9 students to plan and deliver a pitch, Dragon’s Den style.

Over 200 students, split into teams, had to channel their inner entrepreneur to come up with a business idea, encouraging imaginative thinking and collaboration, to then present to the Dragon’s in a nerve-wracking pitch.  Paul helped lead his team to victory for the ‘Best innovative idea’ which was the perfect end to a hugely satisfying day.  

Catherine Hay, Event and Relationship Manager at Form the Future, commented;
 “We are very grateful to Blue Sky Systems for supporting our events.  We rely on business volunteers who give their time to assist students in local schools, by inspiring them and helping them to prepare for their future after school.”

Paul also spent time at CAST (formerly UTC Cambridge) working with a small number of students who were particularly interested in Computer Science and Civil Engineering, some of which were looking at the Apprenticeship route.  Paul spent time in one-on-one sessions look at their CV and talking to them about career paths, opportunities etc.

Blue Sky Systems are proud to work with Form the Future who are pioneers in empowering children to fulfil their dreams and set them on the right path to success once they leave school.  Their goal is to open students’ eyes to a wide range of possibilities and challenge them to think broadly and divergently about their future career options.
