Imagine you were an apprentice but at some point in your career you’d like to run your own business … and NOW you’ve been given the chance to interview a leading successful entrepreneur?
Following the success of their debut ‘An Evening With..’ event where apprentices Emma Green and Bethany Orrow interviewed telecoms mogul Neil McArthur MBE, Tangerine’s The Juice Academy welcomed Social Chain COO Dominic McGregor to be interviewed by apprentices Kerryn Zendera from Victoria Warehouse and Usama Anjum from the North West Apprentice Ambassador Network.
In case you haven’t heard Social Chain are a Social Media Marketing Agency that run some of the biggest social media accounts out there, working with massive names such as Superdry, BooHoo, Amazon, ASOS and the BBC, just to name a few!
RSM sponsored and hosted the evening where Dominic spoke about how his interest in Social Media spawned from running out of toilet roll as a student, leading to the creation of Facebook page Student Problems, which now has over seven million followers. Kerryn and Usama also invited Dominic to speak about mental health, a topic he openly discusses in a bid to raise awareness about mental health, particularly in young men.
Sandy Lindsay MBE, Chair of The Juice Academy said ‘A few of our apprentices came to us and said they want to own their own businesses in the future and asked if we could run an entrepreneurial hub where they could come and get advice. So we thought we’d do one better and create an entertaining evening where they can interview a successful entrepreneur. It’s a privilege to have Dominic McGregor involved in the event, Social Chain have been fantastic supporters of The Juice Academy and have continually employed apprentices from our programme’
Since its inception, The Juice Academy, the UK’s first ever industry-led social media apprenticeship programme, has trained more than 250 young people and many graduates have gone on to enjoy exciting opportunities with some of the UK’s biggest brands including Social Chain, UNILAD, Manchester Airport and Northern Powerhouse Partnership.
