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.

Words To Live By

I’ve talked before about the importance of employee ‘buy-in’ to CSR activities, the importance of having everyone reading from the same page, and how this is amplified in the case of SMEs. Having people who have the necessary values and conduct themselves with the right attitudes is not a trivial matter, neither for CSR nor for business in general. Values mean more than individual gestures.
