Sponsored by Ernst & Young, the EY Entrepreneur of the Year Awards is a global programme that celebrates the success of entrepreneurs, the positive impact they’re making on the economy and society, and the legacies they’re building.
EY Entrepreneur of the year
Jenny was a national judge for the UK competition in 2017, which runs programmes across four regions across the country. The winner of the UK programme then goes on to compete globally.
Jenny is also hugely passionate about the work of Young Enterprise, the UK’s leading charity that empowers young people to harness their personal and business skills through practical programmes.
The charity works directly with young people, their teachers and parents, businesses and influencers to build a successful and sustainable future for all young people and society at large.
Jenny’s involvement in judging regional competitions has led to her involvement on a national level with the charity.
Jenny said of her support, “Finance impacts us all, no matter what occupation we are. For planning and managing expenses, outgoings and income are an unavoidable aspect of life.
As such, encouraging positive attitudes towards budgeting amongst school children and promoting behavioural awareness when making informed decisions has lifelong benefits for young people. I really admire the work Young Enterprise do in helping the next generation grasp their inner entrepreneur, setting them up with skills they will use for life.”
