More Magazine Go Think Big Issue 10th December 2012

This article is for you to use as a starting point just like I have wrote in my own words, however I think this article explains it better as this website has all the information for you ready…

GOTHINKBIG.CO.UK WANTS YOU

Getting your foot on the career ladder isn’t easy, but that’s about to change. Bauer has teamed up with O2 to create GoThinkBig, a fresh perspective on work experience that’s set to help thousands of young people (just like you) with career opportunities. O2 has already helped hundreds of young entrepreneurs like Hannah Catmur get their careers started, and you can find out more about applying for funding to set up your own organisation by looking at O2 Think Big on the GoThinkBig website. We found why Hannah couldn’t have set up her company without O2’s help…

How did O2 Think Big help you set up your organisation?
It gave me encouragement, mentoring and support in the form of training sessions, information and resources. I worked with a fantastic team full of enthusiasm and they were always willing to help with my ideas. 

Tell us more about your organisations.
Get Out! Explorers Club is passionate about getting kids to be more active outdoors and promotes adventure and exploration in an exciting way. Check us out at getoutexplorersclub.co.uk

What events have you held?
I organised an outdoor event this summer and 2000 people came along. The themes were exploring the outdoors and getting closer to nature. I was supported by various organisations and local businesses and it was great and a huge success. 

What are you working on now?
I’d love to develop Get Out! Explores Club and to receive enough funding to start the project up properly. I want to run more events for young children and families, educating kids about the outdoors.

What advice would you give young people who want to start their own business?
You’re young, so just go for it! There’s loads of support and resources out there now for young people wanting to start up a business. Times are tough and young people face so much competition for work, so now is as good a time as ever.

What are your thoughts on the new GoThinkBig inititative?
It’s a fantastic idea, as it encourages young people to make something of themselves. It’s inspiring and gives them the means to start up a venture. There are loads of talented young people out there and I know just how important work experience is. Don’t be afraid to get stuck in and remember there is no such thing as a stupid question!

Could you have done it without O2 Think Big?
I’m really driven, so I would have tried to make it work, but I wouldn’t have received the same amount of recognition and support. O2 Think Big helped me out with contacts and their experience was so important.
