On Thursday the 25th of January MindSight had the pleasure of being invited along to the Young Enterprise "Mid Year Briefing event" at Stranmillis College. The experience was great, packed full of great info to help us over the next few weeks and months moving forward.
The MindSight Team have already begun making changes following the feedback the judges and YE team gave us, which was fantastic and of course planning those all important final reports, but definitely not the finale of MindSight. After the mock judging and YE workshops we were treated to a talk with Matthew from "Best Of Belfast" a fantastic podcast producer, showcasing local areas and businesses in Northern Ireland. Matthew himself is a former Young Enterprise participator and it was amazing to hear what has changed and his journey with the program to where he has progressed now.
After the event some of the Team got a photo with Matthew. Matthew is now part of the YE Alumni Network and has a great set of tips to help the YE students of today in their journey.

“Time To Talk Day was a phenomenal day, it was great to see everyone get involved and for the first time in Northern Ireland too. As a Change Your Mind Champion I’m incredibly proud of everything that Time To Talk Day is based on. More people must get the message that “it’s ok to talk. Anytime! Anywhere!” Yesterday was a great example of what we can all do when we come together.”
Lewis Robinson (Marketing Director)
The MindSight Team would like to say a huge Thank You to everyone who got involved, but let’s not make it just one day, Time To Talk Day is everyday!
