Hello Hello!

It’s been a while since I wrote my first blog post and I am itching to share with you all the latest news and goings on here at USE.  I am settling into my role quite well and since those first few hairy weeks of getting my head around what enterprise is, it’s been full throttle, with lots of exciting and interesting events and projects…

17 February 2015 - 4:50 pm E is for….

If it isn’t one E word (enterprise) that I go on about, it is another one, employability.

We all know that the graduate market is highly competitive and you need to be able to stand out from the crowd. The way I like to describe this is by thinking of a cake: your degree is a great solid base that has got the essential knowledge that you need to do the job (or in a cake sense, you need the sponge to be a cake) but it is the things that you do on top of your degree that makes you more attractive to employers (and for me, the sprinkles, toppings and anything else you can fit on the cake makes it sooo much more attractive).

25 August 2014 - 10:04 am BORED.

So, you have finished your course for the year (or forever), been away for a few weeks with family or friends and you have nothing planned till September. You have come to the realisation that you can watch too much Jeremy Kyle and that your reading list for next year on Quantum Mechanics is (long pause) epic (not). What can you do over the summer?

29 July 2014 - 10:51 am Summer Break?

This year has flown past so fast, it seems so strange that we are already running all our summer activities. Here at USE, it is as busy as ever…

We have got Enactus working at the zone, every day. Besides getting ready for the trip to Beijing for the Enactus World Cup, they are currently working on a new social project that will be operating in Zambia. So, there is loads of brainstorming, scoping out of their new ideas and prototyping going on. Continue reading “Summer Break?” »

20 March 2014 - 11:53 am Double (Or Even Triple) Feel-Good Effect

Is your office or dorm room dull? Or perhaps you are looking for a finishing touch that will liven up the décor? Or maybe you are searching for a great cause for donation because there is no better why to instantly lift your spirits? Perhaps you might be looking for a great gift for your parents and relatives (Mother’s Day is this Sunday, 30th March)?

Why not combine all of these into one?

In collaboration with RAG and Bummit I’m organising Charity Art Auction 2014 that is the first and one-time only opportunity to purchase original artwork in support of Sheffield charities. Continue reading “Double (Or Even Triple) Feel-Good Effect” »

3 March 2014 - 10:36 am I Love the Steelers!

On a Sunday night, one of my favourite things to do is head down to Sheffield Arena, to watch the Sheffield Steelers, Sheffield’s ice hockey team, who are actually quite good. However, there is a social enterprise side to my love affair with the Steelers.  Continue reading “I Love the Steelers!” »
