Nine of the world’s most innovative young creative entrepreneurs working in multimedia are in London to collaborate with peers from the UK as part of the British Council’s Young Creative Entrepreneur (YCE) programme.

The Young Creative Entrepreneur (YCE) programme celebrates and and connects emerging innovative and entrepreneurial leaders in the creative and cultural industries around the world.

These creative minds included Uche Pedro the driving force behind Africa’s premier online lifestyle, entertainment and fashion portal, BellaNaija. Marcos Ferreira the entrepreneur opening up multi-platform content to Brazil through mobile technology and the creator of a Vietnamese online film festival and development platform for film-makers.

Our CEO Wendy Devolder was invited to take part in their expert panel to share and speak about leadership experiences. Other experts on the panel included Paul Boross, an internationally recognised authority on communications, presentation and performance, as well as BBC Chief Creative Officer Pat Younge and founder of global youth broadcasting brand SBTV Jamal Edwards.

As you may know one of our core beliefs here at Skills Matter is to learn and share. This was a fantastic opportunity for Wendy to share her ever expanding sea of knowledge, speaking about a wide range of experiences from starting up Skills Matter to taking it across the Atlantic. All nine entrepreneurs show great enthusiasm and potential, we wish them luck in all their endeavours!
