FEO Event

FEO NxGen events are delivered in schools and colleges by local entrepreneurs who volunteer their time to help inspire young people to think about self-employment as a career option. This is a career path that can reward hard work, resilience and determination.

What makes NxGen different?

  • Inspires young people to take control of their futures
  • Rebuilds confidence and develops resilience
  • Opens the minds of the next generation
  • Develops focus and motivation
  • Encourages the right attitude to be successful whether employed or self employed
  • Reinforces the importance of effective communication

What does NxGen cover?

Our FEO NxGen volunteers will arrive on the day and encourage students to work in groups and come up with a business idea that they will develop through the day building up to a presentation to be made in front of the other students and FEO members.

To aid them, FEO members deliver short presentations focused on key areas for business including: Attitude, People, Money and Marketing.

The students will then get time to work on their idea and build the concepts covered in the section into their final presentation.
