Ali Zaidi, Head of Restructuring & Insolvency at Edwin Coe, spoke today at the Enterprise Challenge 2016 Regional Finals held by Mosaic.
The Mosaic Enterprise Challenge is an annual national competition for secondary school students across the UK, designed to develop and encourage their entrepreneurial skills.
Teams of students work with a mentor from the business community to learn about becoming future business leaders, play a simulation game, and come up with fantastic business ideas.
The London Regional Final was won by Eden Girls’ School, Waltham Forest who go through to the grand final in May.
Edwin Coe partner Ali Zaidi, who is Vice Chairman of the London Executive Committee of Mosaic, commented:
“I am extremely proud of my association with Mosaic and I wholeheartedly support this event. Mosaic plays an important part in guiding and teaching young people in today’s society.”
With the help of volunteer mentors acting as role models, they aim to bridge the aspirations-attainment gap. By linking young people with inspirational role models in this way, Mosaic boost their confidence, self-efficacy and long-term employability.
Ofsted has recognised Mosaic in the recently published Department of Education’s statutory guidance on careers advice.
In the history of the competition, winning teams have enjoyed private trips on the London Eye, tea with the Prime Minister’s wife at 10 Downing Street, a trip to ITV News to meet a famous newsreader and the winners of Enterprise Challenge 2012/2013 were treated to a unique tour of Clarence House and a tour of HM Treasury.
