LEADERSHIP AND ENTERPRISE
15-28 July 2018 (2 weeks)
You’re hired! This summer start your journey to becoming a CEO by learning the nuts and bolts of business leadership. You’ll begin by studying iconic companies and the men and women who lead them – Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Coco Chanel. Taking your cues from them, you will then build your own business from idea to marketing to budgeting and planning. Work as a group to build this towards a pitch to potential investors and see who’ll buy into your brand!
Equipping future business leaders with the skills to succeed and developing an entrepreneurial mindset is the foundation of this dynamic course. Teamwork and strategy are combined with creative thinking to build the students’ English ability in all areas.
- Spoken English - presentation, discussion, debate, pitching, rhetorical skills
- Writing skills - persuasive writing, structuring, creativity, vocabulary

I am always so impressed by the students on final assessment day - these are leaders of the future!
Our final day is a pitch to an expert panel headed by star of TV's 'The Apprentice' Nick Hewer. He shares his tips on how to build a business and present like a boss.
