Megan joined the team in January as the Regional Coordinator for the Young Enterprise Scheme.
The objective of YES is to grow our region’s young entrepreneurs of the future and Megan’s role is to organise events; encourage and support schools who offer the programme; work with valued local sponsors and facilitate learning using a wide range of dedicated business experts from across Taranaki.
Megan’s background is predominantly in Digital Marketing, Tourism and Project Management, and her previous role at Venture Taranaki has given her great exposure to the local business community. Megan has a lot of personal experience with the Young Enterprise programme; she mentored a team in 2018 and also took part in the programme whilst studying at New Plymouth Girls’ High School, with her team taking out regional and national top awards.
Her experience with the programme means that she is extremely passionate about getting as many Taranaki students to take part in the Enterprise Scheme as possible, as she knows how beneficial it is especially for those wanting a career in business and innovation.
Megan highly values the support of our local businesses that are involved in all aspects of this rewarding programme. If you would like to become a mentor for our YES students, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with her.
