Taylor Patterson were delighted to be invited to attend a Question Time themed event for local schools as part of a series of activities to mark Responsible Business Week.
Organised by Business in the Community (BITC) and taking place at Fulwood Academy on 6th April, the event aimed to give secondary school pupils the opportunity to quiz a panel of Lancashire business leaders about the importance of doing business responsibly, and to hear about their experiences.
This was then followed by a networking session for the students, teachers and business people in attendance. During the networking students were encouraged to share their ideas for improving the way businesses work, making workplaces better and helping communities thrive.
Louise Potter from Taylor Patterson attended the event along with Lee Petts from Remsol, Tyrone Jones from the business law firm DWF, Francis Egan from Cuadrilla Resources, Alasdair Jackson from Recycling Lives, Daniel Halenko from Blackburn Alarms, and Henry Booth from Booths Supermarkets.
Commenting on Taylor Patterson’s involvement, Louise Potter said “This was a great opportunity to meet the students working on the business studies course. It enables us to provide our insight and talk about our real life experiences on how we have developed our businesses, whilst also gaining ideas from the students on how to improve business practice.”
Responsible Business Week takes place between 18-22 April 2016. It represents a high profile opportunity for businesses and organisations of all sorts to demonstrate the many ways that they can work together to turn ambition into positive action for a fairer society and a more sustainable future.
