SEE wins High Impact Badge of Honour for Global Entrepreneurship Events

South East Enterprise ran 2 events during Global Entrepreneurship Week back in November 2009: a Speed Network event to launch the 2010 Lewisham Mayors' Business Awards and an evening networking event in Greenwich with an inspirational speaker Mark Shaw who gave a talk on the use of Twitter and social networking for business. Both of these events were well attended and were awarded the High Impact Badge of Honour for organising inspirational, high quality activities during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2009.

All the events during Global Entrepreneurship Week were evaluated through pre-registration data and post-event surveys from event organisers and from participants to see which ones would be awarded the High Impact Badge of Honour.  Only 34 organisations were awarded this special status to more than one of their GEW2009 events!

Fresh Start Graduation

Participants on the Fresh start program attended a graduation ceremony held at the Civic Suite on 30 March. The well attended ceremony which took place in the council chamber was to celebrate the on-going success of Lewisham residents participating in Fresh Start, some of whom have already started their new businesses. Certificates were presented by Steve Nelson, principal director of the South East London Chamber of Commerce who commended the program for its success in helping unemployed Lewisham residents into self employment. Three of the Fresh Start delegates received special ‘Going the Distance’ awards to be spent on their new businesses, the top award was £300 won by Esse Andrews Web Design. Esse was one of the first delegates to join the program in 2009. The graduation was followed by a reception where delegates had the chance to network.
