Good to do some Dynamo work again

It's been a busy week with lots of meetings, so it's good to be wearing a different sort of hat this evening.
Tonight, I am back in action as a 'Dynamo' role model for the Welsh Government.
As one of the Dynamo team, I regularly turn out to help guide and inspire young people.
It's very rewarding work.
This evening, I am talking at the EYST, Ethnic Youth Support Team, in Swansea.
The team is based in St Helen's Road, Swansea, and the evening is being organised by 'Menter a Busnes'.
I'm looking forward to meeting the EYST team.

My PR man is back after his Olympics duties

My PR man, Robert Lloyd, is back in work after his stint as a volunteer with the GamesMakers at the London 2012 Olympics.
'Team Green' was happy to give him the time off!
He's pictured at the Hyde Park venue, obviously considering taking up the traithlon very soon!

Listen again on iPlayer to my education views

Whoops, started by saying 'Good Morning', when it should have been 'Good Afternoon', but apart from that there was a good debate on A Levels, education and the value of university studies on the Radio Wales phone-in with Mai Davies today.
Catch it again on iPlayer -

Tune in to Radio Wales at lunchtime today

I will be on the Radio Wales phone-in programme, from 12noon today, talking about A levels and education.

The 'Secret' is out about my Channel 5 programme

The 'Secret' is out about my new Channel 5 programme.
It’s all been very hush-hush and I couldn’t even tell my closest friends what it is all about.
Channel 5 took the wraps off the pre-publicity campaign today and I can now reveal the show is going to be called ‘Secret Interview’.
Filming was carried out earlier this year we have been busy shooting at different locations in West Wales and beyond.
The show follows my other TV appearances on Channel Four’s Secret Millionaire and Sky’s The Devil’s Dinner Party.
The Secret Interview will be unlike anything I have done previously.
The show will put eight unknowing people through an interview process they will never forget.
The unwitting candidates believe they are filming a documentary about their workplace.
In fact, they are about to have an interview for the job of a lifetime without even knowing it’s happening.
Each of them will be tested to their limits by a team of undercover actors intent on causing utter chaos.
Meanwhile, their prospective new boss watches everything.
Other stars of the Secret Interview will be Michelin starred chef Jason Atherton, the editor of women’s magazine Glamour Jo Elvin and hair stylist to the stars Nicky Clarke.
For the candidates, it’s going to be the working week of their lives and every move they make could take them a step closer to a job with the Secret Interviewers that could transform their world.
Watch out for episode two, when a pair of hopeful estate agents come up against bogus buyers and tenants from hell whilst having to remain calm and collected.
Co-produced by Twofour and GroupM Entertainment, Secret Interview will air on Channel 5 later this month.

Other information:
The series is made up of 4 x 60 minute episodes that will air from late August.

First students sign for Entrepreneurship Academy

Great day yesterday at the new 'Innovation Foundry' at the Dylan Thomas centre in Swansea.
Here is the press release about the event -

The first students have signed up for a new, fast track course that will set them on the path to business greatness.
The Entrepreneurship Academy Wales is the first of its kind in Wales and is being endorsed by entrepreneur and ‘Secret Millionaire’ Kevin Green, with further sponsorship support from Euros Jones-Evans from Telesgop, and Admiral Insurance.
The free, one year programme will lead to a BTEC qualification in Enterprise and Entrepreneurship and is open to aspiring young business leaders aged between 16 and 19.
Delivered from the Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre, the Academy promotes a philosophy of ‘learning by doing’ that sees students work alongside successful business figures, attend masterclasses, undertake work experience and ultimately start their own businesses.
The first four students to enrol are Joshua Dykes from Pontardawe, Geraint Vaughan and Jade Jones from Pontarddulais and Marissa Bartle from Llangennech.
Although they have very different business models in mind, from event management and photography to art and property development, all four agree on one thing - that this is an exciting, once in a lifetime opportunity.
“It’s a great feeling to be among the first students to sign up for the new Academy as there are only 16 places available in total,” says Joshua. “Having the support and guidance of Kevin Green and the other partners is an amazing opportunity for us and we can’t wait to get started.”
“I personally would have benefitted from an initiative like this when I was in school,” adds Kevin. “With a lot of hard work and passion, these students will go on to become the business leaders of tomorrow and I’m very proud to be involved and to be able to lend my support from the earliest stages of the process.”
“Today is the realisation of a dream that has been three years in the making,” says Sue Poole, Education Enterprise Manager at Gower College Swansea, which is delivering the Academy. “We are passionate about inspiring the next generation of young entrepreneurs from across Wales and are delighted to work alongside our partners to develop the talents of these exceptional young people.”
The Academy also has the backing of Cllr Mike Day and Cllr Mitchell Theaker, who both spoke of the importance of encouraging the development of skills, initiative and drive in young people.
The Academy will be officially launched in the presence of Edwina Hart AM on 8 October at the Innovation Foundry at the Dylan Thomas Centre.
Anyone interested in enrolling on the Entrepreneurship Academy Wales or becoming a partner should contact Sue Poole on 01792 284000 or email
