Andew Scott Ltd sponsor 'Best Teamwork'
The Directors of Andrew Scott Ltd are humbled to give their support to talented youngsters in South West Wales and are honoured to sponsor the ‘Best Teamwork’ award in the Swansea Bay Youth Business Dragons contest on November 19th at the Liberty Stadium.
Mark Bowen, Managing Director of Andrew Scott Ltd, who is based in Margam and is Wales’s oldest construction company, said that it is a great privilege to be involved with the competition and lend our support and sponsorship. This is one of the most successful enterprise competitions in Wales. I believe that across Wales, thanks to encouragement and support offered by competitions like this, we are seeing the beginning of an enterprise, engineering and entrepreneurial renaissance in the Swansea City Region.
The Swansea Bay Young Dragons competition with its nautical theme is truly inspiring; the students through to the final have all demonstrated an innovative, can-do approach and the ability to turn great ideas into commercial reality. Their creativity and success will inspire many other young people to make their ideas happen in the Swansea Bay Region and Wales.
Mark Bowen added that Andrew Scott Ltd, have some twenty trainees from summer placements, Workways, apprentices, interns, bursary students to undergraduates and post graduates. We hope that in the future some of these home grown talented students will enable Andrew Scott to continue being the oldest construction company in Wales.
I have long been inspired by the winners of these competitions and our indigenous South West Wales entrepreneurs, these talented entrepreneurs show us what can be done with a bright idea,a small amount of money and the right kind of support.
As it becomes ever more difficult for young people in Wales to find meaningful employment, the winners of the Swansea Bay Young Dragons competition act as powerful role models for other young people who might not otherwise have considered entering a competition like this where they can demonstrate their team work, problem solving skills and more importantly employability skills.”
