Young Enterprise Team ~ The Journey Continues

Greenwich Market ~ 13th March 24

Last Wednesday, five members of the Young Enterprise Team went to Greenwich to compete against 15 different other schools based in London, at the prestigious Greenwich Market. With the team arriving at 9:30am, we were all excited about the day of trading we had ahead of us. We had prepared our stall with all of our handcrafted candles all on display, ready for the fair's opening at 10am. As the day progressed, our stall had sparked the interest of the public passing through the market. With various different customers throughout the day, this resulted in a sale of 26 candles, with some candles even being sold in French by one of the members of our team. As the day progressed, the judges had started coming around to inspect each of the stalls at 1pm. Keen to impress, we were prepared for any questions which we would be faced with. Once the judges arrived at our stall we confidently answered all questions regarding Illumina (our brand) whilst also showing off our unique selling point of our spotify codes linking to our curated playlists for our various different candles. Following the judges asking questions about our business, our team was in good spirits for the awards which followed at 2:30pm. Feeling confident, we were delighted that our team had won the ‘best product’ award. As a result of this achievement, we now look forward to the next upcoming competitions and sales where we can compete against other schools,  showing off our popular candles whilst also having the opportunity to sell.
