South Wales entrepreneur and ‘Secret Millionaire’ Kevin Green is revelling in his new role helping to inspire the next generation of business leaders.
Green has been chosen as a role model for the prestigious Welsh Government ‘Dynamo’ project.
“It’s exciting stuff and great fun to work with schoolchildren and students on developing their business skills and ideas,” Green said.
“I was delighted to be able to accept the position of being one of the Dynamo project’s role models.
“Already, I have been talking to students at Coleg Sir Gar’s Ammanford campus.
“Next month, July 6, sees me helping out at a Dragon’s Den event being staged at Parc y Scarlets for all Carmarthenshire schools.”
Green added: “As a businessman, I obviously care very deeply about helping the next generation of young business entrepreneurs. Being a role model for Dynamo is a very practical way for me to put something back into the community and help youngsters learn the business skills they will need in the future.”
The Dynamo project is part of Big Ideas Wales, the body which promotes projects delivered by the Welsh Government's Youth Entrepreneurship Strategy.
Big Ideas Wales projects work with education, business people and community groups to reach young people in education and beyond. The projects encourage young people to raise their aspirations and realise their own potential for creating exciting opportunities for themselves and others.
By sharing the success of others, Dynamo role models can boost entrepreneurial confidence; helping them value their own ideas and talents, and understand more about the route to business start up.
