A corporate agency start-up less than a year old has delivered a major tender win and London’s launch event for National Apprenticeship Week 2015.
Little Fish Event Management brought in speakers including Secretary of State Vince Cable and BBC1 Apprentice winner Tim Campbell for the events held at two prime locations on London’s South Bank: Marriott Hotel County hall and the London Eye.
Little Fish had been chosen to deliver the Skills Funding Agency’s key London launch event ‘Apprenticeship Revolution’ during National Apprenticeship Week 2015.
The brief for the event was for it to increase awareness and engagement by some of the UK’s leading firms to the benefits of apprenticeships and traineeships.
Lindsey Fish, founder of of the agency, project managed the event which received coverage by Sky News, Bloomberg and London Live.
Hiring out capsules on the London Eye provided an unusual environment for presentations and Q&A sessions were attended by over 100 key employers including Cancer Research UK, Tate and Westminster Business Council.
After the event, Fish said: “It’s been hugely rewarding working with the Skills Funding Agency again. The day has been very successful, with new companies signing up to this initiative which will undoubtedly lead to more young people getting the training, qualifications and opportunities they deserve.”
The Skills Funding Agency achieved its target with almost 1,500 apprenticeship pledges made on the day.
