TEAMS Leicester, is a dynamic business enterprise initiative set up by the business and professional community in Leicester. Last weekend TEAMS took part at the Global Peace and Unity event at Londonâ€™s Excel arena. Young aspiring students from Madani High School, Oadby Beauchamp and Wyggeston and Queen Elizabeth College showcased various different business ideas to those who wished to pursue a career in business. The event proved to be very successful with 60,000 visitors over 2 days and substantially increased awareness of the TEAMS initiative.
TEAMS is moving progressively forward by using business enterprise as a platform for engaging into other much needed community initiatives. TEAMS will aim to assist our youth into strong individuals and give them the tools needed to enable them to face adversities and provide mentoring to assist their development to become future community and business leaders.
After lengthy discussions with members within the community it was felt that a project such as TEAMS will add value to our community. The TEAMS initiative is being developed into a model, which is suitable and can be replicated anywhere within the UK. Like any other community project it will require input from the community it will help facilitate.
