On this page you will find information and contact details of Enterprise Advisers.
Alastair Carnegie - Managing Director
Total Energy Solutions Ltd
The reason I want to be an EA is that I passionately believe if we can bring business and education together (not financially) using the business community to mentor student’s, lives are transformed and local business get the chance to see the amazing raw talent we have in our schools.
Angus Fosten - Joint Managing Director
As an Enterprise Adviser I hope I can help schools provide inspiration and guidance for pupils, linking interests to possible careers in the same way my Physics teacher helped me. A particular area of interest is the STEM subjects which can lead to a vast array of careers and provide business with employees who are innovative and resourceful.
Daryn Dodge - Business Coach
DMD Management Services Ltd
As an Enterprise Adviser I am hoping that I can use all of the experience that I have accumulated to help schools and pupils progress successfully into the business world.
Dean Knapper - HR Transformation and Change Manager
I became an Enterprise Adviser because I want to help young people here in Cornwall make the best possible start to their careers. The world of work is changing, there are lots of new types of jobs and also there are lots of new ways of working as a result of technology improvements. I want to try and ensure young people have a clearer picture of what types of options are available to them, and how they can help prepare themselves to take these new opportunities.
Deborah Morris - Human Resource (HR) Professional
Deborah Morris HR Consultant
I have become an Enterprise Adviser as I am keen to see Education and Business work together to provide students with the best possible knowledge and opportunities in potential career choices. For me personally I am really keen to understand the education system and the opportunities it offers students.
Dr Kat Hickey - Business Development & Training Manager
Goonhilly Earth Station Ltd
As an Enterprise Adviser I want to work with schools to show what amazing career opportunities we have right here in Cornwall and get young people excited about science & technology.
Jo Tomlinson - Head of HR
Samworth Brothers – Kensey Foods
I grew up in Saltash and between 1985 and 1990 I attended what was then Saltash Comprehensive. My school years weren’t my best, I didn’t feel inspired and I had no patience for the subjects I didn’t enjoy. Thankfully I was good at a handful of subjects and I left after year 11 with some GCSEs and a keen desire to get out into the world of work, earn money and be independent.
Marian Shannon - HR Professional
Following a move to Cornwall, I am excited to be volunteering as an Enterprise Advisor for DoubleTrees school in St Austell and looking forward to helping them to develop their student enterprise and employer activities.
Martin Hinchliffe - Managing Director
Hinchliffe Business & People Solutions Ltd
As an Enterprise Adviser I want to combine my own personal business goals with putting something back into the community. I also volunteer as a Business Mentor with the Princes Trust helping young people set up their own businesses which I hope will be successful and that they too can fulfil their dreams.
I want to help teachers and students to know what employers real expectations are cutting through waffle (polite word!), so that individuals will stand a better chance of long term employment in their chosen field.
Nicky Luke - Recruitment & Talent Manager
As an Enterprise Adviser I want to help people build their courage to fulfil their potential and achieve things they never thought they would. I find huge rewards in doing that – long may that continue!
Paul Nicholls - Project Skills co-ordinator
I tend to work alone to deliver the Employment Skills Plan targets that my job requires. As an Enterprise Adviser, I work as part of a team that can support an organisation in many ways. Each Enterprise Adviser has their own career which is their ‘specialist subject’, collectively though, the network can offer much more help and guidance.
Pete Matthew - Managing Director
Jackson Wealth Management
I became an Enterprise Adviser as I want to do my bit to help students understand what it means to hold down a career and what employers are looking for. Also, there are some great opportunities in Cornwall to earn a good living doing something meaningful and enjoyable.
Peter George - CITB Adviser
Construction Industry Training Board
As an Enterprise Adviser I hope that I am able to support the school to see construction as a viable and exciting career for all and help promote and support careers advice so students can learn what’s available to them and aspire to greater goals.
Richard Gates - Falmouth Town Manager
I became an Enterprise Adviser to support and assist school pupils for the future. My advice to a Young Person taking their GCSE options would be to ensure life skills are developed so computing/ finance/ cooking etc and to choose subjects they have an interest in.
Simon Willshire - Production Planning Manager
As an Enterprise Advisor I want to give pupils an insight into their options after education and what working life can be like. I hope that I can inspire them to think that a career in Engineering is an exciting option that can lead to many different career opportunities.
Stacey Davies - Human Resources (HR) Business Partner
the National Health Service (NHS)
I wanted to be an Enterprise Adviser because I thought I might be able to help prepare students for the world of work and support the great work currently being undertaken by their teachers.
Having spent a great deal of time recently helping my son and his friends write CVs and apply for part-time jobs I appreciate how difficult it can be. I want to be able to use my HR knowledge and business skills to help young people with their career prospects.
Steve Forth - General Manager
I became an Enterprise Adviser to broaden students view of the work place, aspire them to want to do well and enable them to interact with businesses around them that could be their future employers.
Stuart Moore - Head of Spacecraft Operations
As an Enterprise Adviser I hope that I can use my experience to help provide local pupils with the best possible chance for success in their chosen career and can offer valuable insight of potential career paths into the military and space industries.
Susan Walton - HR Professional
I have enjoyed a great career so far having been fortunate to get into a secure, long term job straight from school. I fell into that job but it gave me an interesting, fulfilling career and I am now able to widen my experiences further. I want to make a contribution to the future by supporting schools as they guide and support students towards the workplace.
