Created for Year 10- 13 students, meet Gatsby Benchmark 5 this month by attending our special broadcast event of an exclusive pre-recorded interview: ‘Making an Entrepreneur: A Young Black Female CEO’s Story’. This video will premiere on YouTube at 9:15 am on Thursday 30th September. It is around 20 minutes long and has optional pauses for student discussion and interaction to fit into a timetabled lesson. Interviewed by Oliver Pawle, Chairman of Korn Ferry, a global consultancy firm, Kike shares the journey she took and opportunities she carved out to get to where she is, the personal setbacks overcome along the way, and the importance of knowing your own strengths and weaknesses.

Combined with interactive elements, students will be considering what skills they think are needed for working in business and whether Kike has challenged any prior misconceptions about building your own business. Whether you’re looking to stream in your business class or stream across entire year groups, register on behalf of your school to receive your joining link. We’ll do all the planning, all you have to do is timetable and join on the day.
