Queen Elizabeth Grammar School’s Young Enterprise team this year is brimming with potential. The company, named Individual!, gained first prize at a recent training workshop after delivering a presentation in front of other participating teams- as well as a panel of judges.

Individual2The Young Enterprise programme starts in September and continues up until April. A new company is formed in which all team members play key roles in different departments. They set up business accounts; buy shares; produce a business plan; sell products; produce a company report; sell goods at trade stands and, to top it all off, give a company presentation in front of an audience of 200 people.

Naomi Lee said: “We chose to name our company Individual! as it reflects the type of products we sell and by following our motto, we hope to help you “Set the trend”. At Individual!, we aim to create a quality product at an affordable price. And with a strict quality control policy, the final product is always of the highest standard.

“All Individual! products can be viewed on our website “” which is continuously being updated with new and original product lines. You can also follow Individual! on Facebook at “Individual – a branch of young enterprise” and on twitter “@individualye” to stay in the loop regarding new prototypes and products.
