Being a Dynamo Project Role Model

“Being a Dynamo Project Role Model gives me the chance to help with the countrywide growth of entrepreneurial spirit – never more needed than now  as our Country continues to borrow money, import goods that it could make and import food it could grow. We live in silly times dominated by too many who hold on to power for personal reasons. I remain ever energized to encourage and deliver home growth so that we may give of our healthiest best when contributing to the World stage and its performance.” (Grant 2006)

In the words of Jane Davidson AM – Minister for Education and Lifelong Learning (2006) :

We need more people with imagination and motivation to set up enterprises and create exciting opportunities for themselves and others.

This means sowing the seeds in all walks of life, especially among young people in our schools and colleges. Our young people need to be entrepreneurially confident to play a full and active part in the economy.

I believe that our young people have talent, flair and ability in abundance. Entrepreneurship education seeks to harness this talent to ensure it matures and helps develop an enterprising culture for Wales.

Through programmes of entrepreneurship education we aim to ensure that Wales has a new generation, imbued with a “can-do” attitude and driven by an entrepreneurial spirit.

The Youth Enterprise and Entrepreneurship Strategy (YES) is focused on 3 main action areas for this work:


I look forward to schools and colleges everywhere grasping this opportunity, taking advantage of the programmes and to seeing this work bearing fruit in the years ahead.”

Journey into Sound with Naomi Bennett

IMAGENAMEHEREWhen Naomi Bennett visited the HoBB earlier this year, we hosted part of her ‘musical journey’ family workshop.

This new workshop has been designed to provide an opportunity for families to create music together, to learn new songs, to experience sound-scapes and body percussion, and to learn a little more about a wide variety of musical instruments.”

If you are a teacher or event organiser and would like one of Naomi’s Workshop at your venue, send your contact details to me and I will forward them to Naomi so she can confirm details with you.


Naomi is a creative practitioner working with children, families and older adults; and has provided creative workshops for charities such as Action for Children, Fairbridge, Age Concern and The Longest Story in The World, working in a number of countries.


“The Longest Story in the World UK” project.
This is a multi-theatre arts project celebrating the cultural work of over 200 UK children which has led to this wonderful performance of a future vision of the world.

“Age Concern and Help the Aged” are now Age UK:
Age UK has a vision of a world in which older people flourish. We aim to improve later life for everyone through our information and advice, campaigns, products, training and research.

“Fairbridge” works with young people aged 13-25 that other organisations find difficult to engage – giving them the motivation, self-confidence and skills they need to change their lives.

“Action for Children” supports and speaks out for the most vulnerable and neglected children and young people in the UK
