Inscyte Limited, an East-Midlands business consultancy providing business development and marketing support to early-stage companies and SMEs, has announced that it has welcomed Mike Coliandris, a student from Nottingham University, for a work experience placement.
Mike, a sociology student, has always had an interest in business consultancy and is keen to gain first-hand experience of an industry he intends to join on graduation. He decided to approach Inscyte because of the expertise and industry knowledge of its two directors, Corinne Lea and Peter Brunger, and because they are a start-up themselves.
Having offered Mike a chance to learn within a local business, the Inscyte team are equally as keen to mentor him through involvement in real-life projects. Mike is already supporting the team with essential market research activities. He will also be accompanying the team to local networking events which will give him the opportunity to mingle with local entrepreneurs and business people and get a feel of the type of clients a consultancy deals with. Through such events, the Inscyte team seeks to provide him with a unique chance to practice the skills he will need as a future entrepreneurial businessman and develop the necessary attributes needed to create and maintain professional relationships.
Peter Brunger, co-director of Inscyte, says: “Inscyte is delighted that Mike came to us for a foundation in business consultancy. We look forward to involving and coaching Mike in the business we have formed and to share with him the experience of developing a successful start-up."
Corinne Lea adds: "We see this experience as an ideal opportunity to give back to the local community, to nurture the interest in an undergraduate and to encourage other aspiring entrepreneurs to follow Mike’s example.” Mike says: “I’m really looking forward to the work experience. It offers me a fantastic opportunity not only to develop my sales and marketing skills but it will assist my personal development. Under the careful guidance of my mentors I am slowly learning the principles and complexities involved in managing a business consultancy. Inscyte has recognised the need to encourage entrepreneurs to grow the local economy and I am enjoying learning first-hand about what it takes to run a business.”
