Celebrate Success sponsor Mappin & Webb, which champions the Young Ambassador of the Year Award, offered a life-changing experience for a group of young entrepreneurs last week (27th January 2017).

Mappin & Webb, which has been one of our partners since 2013, invited 10 young people to an Enterprise Day to give them the opportunity to understand the luxury goods business, before visiting its main store on Regent Street; tour its flagship boutique; and take part in a workshop in Hatton Garden. 

Senior staff - including Creative Director Elizabeth Galton and Royal Warrant Holder and Senior Manager Karl Bailey - shared their experiences of growing a successful jewellery business. In addition to this Young Ambassadors Tanguy Viaud and Lenique Louis inspired the group with details of the support they've received through our Enterprise programme.

Simone Taylor, one of the young people who took part in the Enterprise Day, said: 

It was a pleasure to attend the Mappin & Webb Enterprise Day. I learnt so much about the luxury industry, made some amazing contacts and have a firm direction on where to take my business. 

In addition to their Celebrate Success award sponsorship, Mappin & Webb also design and manufacture the Silver Apprentice Bowls that will be given to our winners and finalists in March - a special product that all silversmith apprentices are able to produce after their training.
