Marketing & Product Development Manager, Lisa Blair with pupils from St Macnissi's Primary School
Kilwaughter was recently invited to take part in the ‘Dragons Den’ at St Macnissi’s Primary School, Larne. The school hold a ‘Dragons Den’ each year where P7 pupils become budding entrepreneurs and get three minutes to pitch their business ideas to local business representatives.
Marketing & Product Development Manager Lisa Blair went along to the school to listen to the pitches from 5 teams, each made up of 6 pupils.
‘This is my second year in the ‘den’ at St Macnissi’s and I have once again been impressed by the high standard. The children not only deliver an excellent powerpoint pitch but they utilise latest technologies to make a TV ad that includes the composition of their own music. They confidently cover every element of new product launch from budgets to straplines! I was delighted to attend and offer guidance and support to pupils who clearly have a bright future’.
Kilwaughter is committed to enhancing the educational experience of young people through initiatives such as 'Time to Read'. We support exchange placements, work experience, facility tours and open days for local and foreign students.
