It's all happening in Northern Ireland...

Mon 12 September 2011

There's so much going on in the next few months it's making my head spin!

We've created a team for the Prince's Trust Million Makers corporate challenge and we're up against some big companies in this competition.

Around one in five young people in the UK are not in work, education or training. Youth unemployment costs the UK economy £10million a day in lost productivity, while youth crime costs £1billion every year.

The Prince's Trust addresses this by giving practical and financial support to the young people who need it most. Last year the Trust helped over 3,000 young people in Northern Ireland develop key skills, confidence and motivation, enabling them to move into work, education or training.

Big New Ideas Events is an events company, created by BNI directors and ambassadors in Northern Ireland, who want to make a difference to your business and personal life whilst supporting the work of the Prince's Trust and competing in their annual Million Makers corporate challenge.

We have three events coming up in September and we could use your help:

BNI Lisburn is 10 years old and is celebrating by having a Big Breakfast on Friday 9th September. We have lined up a very special internationally acclaimed guest speaker. None other than Iain Whyte, Big Man Talking!

This event is open to all BNI members and their guests so bring along your clients, suppliers, friends and work colleagues. It promises to be a great networking event and Iain will be truly entertaining, I promise you!

The meeting fee for this event is £10 and BNI Lisburn have very kindly agreed to donate all profits to Big New Ideas Events for the Million Makers challenge.

Last year we had nearly forty of you abseil down the Ramada Encore. This year we've secured places to abseil down the Europa hotel on Sunday 25th September in aid of the Prince's Trust through Big New Ideas Events.

If you, your friends, family and business contacts are up for the challenge, this event is open to all. Space is limited so you need to secure your place early.

Andrew Dobbin has arranged to bring the international speaker and all round success entrepreneur and teacher, Mark Rhodes, to Northern Ireland on Tuesday 27th September.

The Business Mind Set event promises to be full of fantastic content, tips and practical solutions to help any business owner create more success.

All of these events can be found on our Facebook page Big New Ideas Events.

You can help us by visiting and liking the page, and if you can, please share the events with your contacts.

We'd love to get your support and appreciate you helping us reach our target of £25,000 over the next few months.
