  1. John, there was a fantastic turn out today at the event…just a question though – do you think the lack of employers was just about the event perhaps not getting enough there or is this saying something about our area and the lack of employers around??

    • Hi Paul. I know that Liam is keen to repeat the event and will be trying to engage more employers next time round. I think that the tremendous turnout at this event should encourage more businesses to get involved.

  2. absolutely, it was fantastic to see so many young people there which shows the drive and motivation of our young people to work and to have a career. It would be important to repeat the event and ensure employers are there.
