VISION STAGE – FRIDAY 4:00 pm – 4:45 pm
Your chance to hear from a panel of under-18s on their unfiltered views and dreams for the world. We often talk about supporting the next generation of talent, but don’t always hear what they need or want. Here they tell us how we all can help them get the information, resources and freedom they need to become powerful allies and teammates in our Northern economy and society.

Hi I’m Muhammad. I’m 17 and I’m in my second year in Runshaw College studying BTEC Business. I have gained invaluable work experience during summer at the EY Smart Futures Programme. I organise a homework club at my local community centre where students can drop in with any issues they’re facing with school work. I am also part of the “Feed the Homeless Group” where we raise money and awareness about the rise in Homelessness across Greater Manchester. My aim at the end of this year is to get an accountantcy apprenticeship.
