“I was incredibly impressed with the confidence and gravitas shown by all of the students during the presentation at the end of this challenge.” Elaine Derx, Transformation Strategy Analyst, Transport for London

 

 

EiA: Aylward & Nightingale Academies

 

On Monday November 11th – 15th 2013, Entrepreneurs in Action ran their ‘Classroom to Boardroom’ programme for the students of Aylward and Nightingale Academies.

 

21 students participated in the programme. The challenge setter for the programme was Transport for London (TfL). TfL is the government body responsible for most of transport system in London, including the city’s Underground, buses, rail and Overground.

 

There were two challenges set for the week:

 

Challenge one:

  • “What amenities and functions should be included in the three stations serving the Earl’s Court area in 2031? What should TfL’s aspirations be for the customer experience in 2031 in the surrounding areas and stations servicing the Earl’s Court Project?”

Challenge two:

  • “What secondary commercial income opportunities should TfL be planning for to help keep down the cost of its services to customers?”

The final day presentations were held at 55 Broadway, TfL’s Victoria offices, where the students presented to a TfL Board including the Head of Business Development and Head of Marketing Strategy.

 

The presentation created by the students was superb, with elements used that we have never seen before such as videos and hand drawn blueprints. EiA staff and all visitors at the presentation were thoroughly impressed with the hard work and effort by the students.

  • It was clear from the detail in the presentations how much research and background reading had been done by the students and how much effort they had put into the task.” Francella, Business Analyst, Transport for London
