A major apprenticeship event at Truro and Penwith College featured The Apprentice winner Lee McQueen who gave a fast paced and motivational speech.
This special meeting of the college’s Cornwall Business Club was compered by Daphne Skinnard from BBC Radio Cornwall.
More than 180 business people from all over the county attended the event held at Truro College’s Fal Building.
Apprentices organised and hosted the event, with 12 studying their Professional Cookery framework at The Seafood Restaurant making and serving fabulous canapés.
The college’s principal David Walrond said: “It was a great success in terms of the levels of interest and engagement from businesses and the quality of the discussions, including the many informal networking conversations that surrounded the presentations.
“We want more and more businesses to take on board the idea of employing apprentices and the feedback from this evening is really encouraging.”
