Taking over their first event of the season, the talent network of young creatives, entrepreneurs, STEM aficionados and free-thinkers aptly named Young Leaders Network made their warm presence felt on the University of Westminster’s Harrow Campus this past Thursday, 11 October.
The Creative Talent Festival is a (soon-to-be) annual event being introduced by the Creative Enterprise Centre based at the University of Westminster’s school of Media, Arts, and Design campus. The festivities included live performances from students, informational panels by industry guests, an evening of talks and a few professional led workshops ranging from mindfulness to creative skill shares, all of which were headlined by a myriad of businesses, organisations and networks for students to interact with.
Set up with a prime location in Stand 17, the ambassadors for Young Leaders Network had a lovely afternoon engaging with a multitude of students from a range of ages, backgrounds, and faculties. The YLN booth not only served up sweets and awed the audience with a set of new business cards (hot off the press!), but additionally featured a pop-up podcast station where they interviewed patrons on 2 topics: “What does ‘success’ mean to you?” & “What does ‘creativity’ mean to you?”
(Verb Brands‘ social media account director Sarah Keeble joined YLN’s Through The Grapevine podcast to talk about what success means to her)
By the time the dust settled after a long but lovely day, YLN was over 30 members stronger. A warm welcome to all of the newest Young Leaders! We look forward to being a part of your journeys towards success!
