Florence said: “We worked well as a team and had a lot of fun so I’m happy with the result. I never thought I’d be standing in such a huge room presenting in front of so many people so I feel like I’ve achieved a lot.”
Run by the Mayor of Wandsworth, the competition was open to young people in the borough aged 16 –19. South Thames College had two teams in the final, team Power of 6 also gave a confident presentation of their product of an all-in-one toothbrush to the judges.
Level 1 Business tutor, Gilly Walker, said: “Throughout the competition process I’ve seen the students go from young teenagers to young adults. The skills they’ve learnt are amazing. Not just the presentation skills, but communication, working in a team and meeting deadlines. They’re transferable to other social enterprise projects they’re working on, but more importantly they’re transferable to the workplace.”
The group won £100 and are yet to decide how they’ll be spending their prize.
