On Wednesday 12th June, we exhibited at the Devon Business Show in the Plymouth Pavilions – a high profile forum for local businesses of all sizes to showcase the products and services they offer. We had a big presence at the show with two stands manned by our knowledgeable and friendly team who were on hand to explain the apprenticeship process.
The event provided a brilliant platform for networking, and we spoke to a wide range of diverse businesses throughout the day, from Plymouth City Council to Livewell Southwest. We enjoyed some delicious treats from Peace and Coffee and its beautifully converted Piaggio Ape Van, and were impressed with Citybus’ brand new Enviro 200EV electric bus which was unveiled at the show. We were also delighted to see creativity encouraged in the city through Ignite which asked its visitors to get involved in 3D digital printing and building modelling clay sculptures of recognisable Plymouth landmarks!
We met many new faces who were interested in the business benefits of hiring apprentices or upskilling existing employees, and caught up with some of our current employers, including Plymouth Community Homes, and businesses we already work with, such as St Austell Printing Company.
We finished the day with new contacts, inspiration for business ideas, and plans for 2020’s show – watch this space!
