G20 YEA Summit – Russia

During June myself and my Co-Founder of Young Brits (Glynn Pegler) took a delegation of young entrepreneurs out to Moscow to take part in the Annual Summit for the G20 Young Entrepreneurs Alliance. The delegation from the UK was kindly supported by Business Wales and bought together a wide mix of individuals from across the UK. A full breakdown of the delegation can be found here.

In addition to the summit itself, we also held a delegation launch event at the Institute of Directors in London, where the Director General of the IoD, Simon Walker, lended his support and congratulated Business Wales on their support of the delegation. On our return from Moscow we were invited to the House of Lords where we held a Q&A with the delegation and also had a drinks reception. We were extremely grateful to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Entrepreneurship who kindly hosted us at the House of Lords. During the Q&A the delegation got the chance share their insights and take aways from the summit with senior peers and politicians as well as business figures, including the Shadow Minster for Small Business and Senior Directors from Accenture and Ernst & Young (who are also G20 YEA knowledge Partners).

I firstly wanted to share unique video with you. This was pulled together, with the support of Business Wales, at the summit and includes interviews with a number of the UK delegates and it will really help you get a feel for the summit. The video can be found here, I really hope you enjoy it.

Secondly, I wanted to share with you two  posts we did for BusinessZone re this summit, which were written by delegates from the UK delegation and were they shared their thoughts and experiences from the summit. The first of these posts can be found here and the second one can be found here.

We are now in the planning stages for the G20 YEA summit for 2014 and if you would like to be involved or support the delegation please do get in touch here.
