For the 2nd year running, Ferranti Technologies has been supporting a local schools initiative at the the Mahdlo Centre in Oldham.
The event is aimed at promoting local businesses to 10 year olds from numerous local schools with a view to capture their interest and educate them about possible future careers. Our presentation covers various functions and takes the pupils through the journey of a product from concept to creation.
The students move in groups from company to company and spend roughly 7 minutes with each one, learning as much as they can about that business in the time. We often ran out of time because we like to talk about our business!!
Marketing and brand recognition proved to be very popular, as did the stress balls and sweeties that we gave out!!
