  • Norwich School's Young Chamber Initiative: Supporting the Next Generation

    Developing the next generation of business leaders and entrepreneurs is important to us. As part of our sustainability strategy, US2U Consulting has become the main sponsor of the Norwich School Young Chamber initiative for 2022/23. Developed by Norwich School with the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce, the initiative sees students establish and operate their own commercial business ventures in small teams - providing them with valuable experience and learning opportunities at this early stage in their careers.

    In addition to providing some funding for senior school pupils to start their own small businesses, we also plan to assist with developing an entrepreneurial toolkit that the pupils can use to develop their skills. 

    "We're very grateful for your support in terms of enthusiasm and in this case, financial support" said Tom White, Head of Economics and Business Enterprise and Young Chamber Coordinator, Norwich School.

    As a former Norwich School student that has gone on to establish his own business venture - online art shop By Kerwin, there are also plans for US2U Consulting team member Kerwin Blackburn to provide entrepreneurial advice to those participating in the initiative - particularly around the topics of e-commerce and the start-up business journey.

    We look forward to getting started and learning more about the companies being set up at Norwich School, based in Norwich's Cathedral Close.

  • US2U Consulting duo deliver business advice to Norwich School 'Young Chamber' students - Sponsorship Update

    US2U Consulting Director Rachel Blackburn and her son, US2U team member Kerwin Blackburn visited Norwich School on Wednesday, 28th September to speak to around 50 sixth form business students enrolled on Norwich School's Young Chamber programme for 2022-23 - the entrepreneurial initiative that we are sponsoring for this academic year.

    Norwich School's Young Chamber programme is the year-long scheme that allows students to set up their own businesses and gain valuable real-world entrepreneurial experience alongside their school studies. The programme has been established by Norwich School alongside the Norfolk Chamber of Commerce. We are pleased to be the primary sponsors of the programme for the year, and to support the development of the next generation of entrepreneurial talent.

    With the session aimed at providing the students with advice for starting their businesses as they kick off the initiative for the year, Rachel spoke about the importance and practicalities of developing a solid business plan.

    Kerwin then spoke about his own entrepreneurial experience of growing his e-commerce art business, By Kerwin (www.bykerwin.com), sharing with the students the key tips that he has learnt.

    Norwich School Development Director, Jonathan Pearson, reflected, "It was a pleasure hearing you share with our young people your extensive experience and top tips. Your enthusiasm came through so clearly and through such 'gold dust' advice. The kids do not know how lucky they are to have received such a masterclass. They would do well to take such counsel with them into Young Chamber but also into the real world beyond Norwich School."

    We look forward to seeing the progress of these student-run businesses in the coming months! Read Norwich School's write-up of this event on their website here.
