Business: The Entrepreneurship Game with Dr Carol Padgett & Dr Maksim Belitski from Henley Business School, University of Reading

22nd April 2016 @ 09:00 - 10:50

Henley Business School

In this highly interactive event, Henley Business School, part of The University of Reading, will engage Year 10 Gifted & Talented students in a business game which explores and applies different approaches to entrepreneurial thinking.

Following a welcome and introduction from Dr Carol Padgett & Dr Maksim Belitski, in which the students will be introduced to the key ideas and set the business challenge, each participating academy will break out to develop their innovative products. They will each be supported online by an undergraduate mentor from the Business School. Each academy will then return to the main online event to present their ideas to the panel and to the other academies.

Whilst stretching and challenging Gifted & Talented students, this webinar additionally offers an insight into university and, in particular, the ways in which Business is taught at university level. We hope that it will get your students thinking and stimulate ideas around their future choices of education and career. The link with young, enthusiastic undergraduates has also been shown to have significant motivational benefits for school students.

The agenda for the event is:

09.00 Introduction to the business challenge (All academies together) – Dr Carol Padgett & Dr Maksim Belitski

09.25 Schools then work through a proposal for a new product connected in to one of the undergraduate business students who will act as a facilitator/mentor – each academy will be in a different, simultaneous session with Max dropping by every now and again!

10.15 Each group will present their products to Carol and Max and to the other academies.

10.40 Concluding thoughts, a thankyou and announcement of the business game winner. 

10.50 Close

Suitable for: Year 10 Gifted & Talented Students

Preparation/Pre-reading: No preparation or pre-reading is required for this event. A handout will be provided closer to the event.
