Planning their Own Festival is Music to Business Students’ Ears

On 14 June a group of eight CTEC Level 3 Business and A level Business students took part in an enterprise challenge, funded by an EU project called Future Jobs. They were presented with a brief to work in groups and plan a music festival for an audience of 100,000 people at Roundhay Park. Team 1 presented a ‘Flame’ themed festival and Team 2 a ‘Pirate’ themed festival. The judges were particularly impressed with how the team members used their negotiating skills to try and reduce the price of hiring stages and technicians. Both teams created fantastic presentations, demonstrating effective team working. However, in the end Team 1 triumphed due to their effective financial planning.
