I could hardly wait to meet fellow budding entrepreneurs, discuss business ideas and create my own successful company.
For anyone interested in entrepreneurship, I would highly recommend the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy.
I actually decided not to go to university and endeavoured into business straight from the Academy. I'm now currently positioned as the account director of a million pound business.
I didn't enjoy school and being heavily dyslexic, I didn't feel it was the right environment for me.
I decided to go ahead and apply for the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy course, which turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.
I have always wanted to create something that screams passion, and studying at the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy was a key element that supported me throughout this journey.
Having just come out of rehab, I had completely lost all confidence in myself, lacked direction and was desperate to not relapse into old habits.
I am so glad I joined the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy. It’s certainly the best decision I have ever made.
The Academy allowed me to take control of my life and gave me the encouragement and ambition to take the path that makes me who I am today.
I am both shocked and thrilled to have set up a business so young. The benefits of attending the Peter Jones Enterprise Academy took me by surprise.
Entrepreneurship is fun!
I am astounded by how much I have been taught during this short period of time.
My tutors helped me overcome the disadvantages of having special educational needs and after graduating on the Level 2 course I went onto the Level 3.
The Peter Jones enterprise academy gave me the skills and guidance needed to start my own business. At 20 I now run a successful recruitment company.
I am thrilled to be the 2014 National Entrepreneur of the Year winner.
My childhood dream was to set up my own business. And now I'm an entrepreneur.
I was determined to study at the Academy and made the bold decision to move from the Shetland Islands to Manchester in order to make it happen.
As a young single father, I wanted more skills to improve my prospects and give my daughters the security they needed.
I had this great idea for a luxury pet brand and the Academy gave me the knowledge I needed to get the business up and running.
I have a passion for business and achieved very high grades at school, but I was unsure about my future plans.
I’m not the most academic individual and I was close to failing my GCSEs, so graduating with a distinction was a very proud moment for me.
