A CEO’s Perspective: Celebrating Five Years Working With UK Youth

A CEO’s Perspective: Celebrating Five Years Working With UK Youth

I still remember the moment that changed my life. I was at school and my teacher picked out five students – one of them was me – as people who should go to uni. To put this in perspective, my school’s success rate was how many people got jobs once they left at sixteen, so this was a big deal.

At first, I was embarrassed that I got picked, but the fact that someone believed in me was enough to give me a burst of energy and motivation. I read prospectuses and filled out the university application form. To support me, my dad gave me a fiver so I could send off the application – a lot of money at the time for a poor family like mine. Without the kindness and belief of someone more experienced than me, I would never have had the confidence to go to uni. It was this experience that enabled me to see the value of having a trusted adult who believes in you in your life when you're young and the importance of the work that UK Youth does.

Promotion – ‘Without promotion something terrible happens… nothing!’

Promotion – ‘Without promotion something terrible happens… nothing!’

 

All too often in many areas of our life we achieve great things but we don’t tell anyone. It is a very British trait to be embarrassed by success, but why should we be? This happens all too often with CSR also – for some time we did the same at Aiimi. We were working so hard to achieve something, achieved it and did nothing further with that success. Don’t get me wrong I am not suggesting you need to be arrogant or show-off, but realising further success to the benefit of many by telling appropriate people/organisations what you have been doing is surely the best way to operate.
