Ayrshire Business Week October 2023

Early October saw the return of Ayrshire Business Week and we were delighted to be involved in a programme of events. To join us during a week of prestigious events was S6 pupil Keira from Garnock Academy on her work placement. 

4th October marked the B2B Exhibition Event at the Park Hotel with over 70 businesses in attendance. Each year, the DYW team aim to impress with a topical theme and this year we capitalised on the recent Mission Impossible movie. We asked employers to choose their mission in how they would like to support our local young people. If they accepted the mission, they were entered into a raffle for their chance to win a prize. Congratulations to winner Fiona from Craufurdland Estates. 

We look forward to working with our new connections in the near future.  

The week ended with the Ayrshire Business Awards where we invited guests to join our table to represent their business and to recognise their continued support of the work they do in helping prepare and equip young people for the world of work. We celebrated the achievements of businesses across Ayrshire but in particular, James Frew, for winning the Developing Ayrshire’s Young Workforce award sponsored by Ashleigh Scotland. 

We would like to extend our thanks Ayrshire Chamber for a successful week and to Keira for supporting the team with administrative tasks, event preparation and marketing.
