Working-Word-April-5th-Story

Here at Treefrog Digital we are proud to announce that Chris was invited to be part of the judging panel for the 2017 Big Ideas Celebrated competition thanks to his already strong relationship with Big Ideas Wales, and his roll as mentor.

Big Ideas Wales runs this competition to help build interest in business and help encourage participation of young people across all sectors from students, young people not in education or employment.

Big Idea Celebrated is a competition for 16-25 year olds in Wales. Individuals and groups enter with business enterprise projects and will give a pitch to the panel of judges. Entrants can enter either business ideas or currently active businesses.

The competition was judged by a panel of five judges, each of which have expertise in a different area of business, with Chris lending his online expertise to the panel. The teams or individuals had one minute to pitch their business enterprise projects and the panel of judges would then have a three minute window to ask questions regarding these pitches.

Teams and individuals could enter into multiple categories but were restricted to one entry per team/individual. The categories were Best Enterprise Activity, Best Business Idea, Money Matters Award, Environmental Impact Award, Social Impact Award and Future Entrepreneur Award.

Big Ideas Wales is focussed on encouraging younger generations to take a more active roll in business and business ventures and introducing young people to the tools and skills needed to do so while hopefully bringing some inspiration.
