What our members say

“The events which Generation Next host are not only great ways to meet similar, likeminded individuals but are also held in a friendly, exciting, and most importantly, non-intimidating way, which means that everyone is able to join-in.”
Benjamin Wileman , Leasing consultant at Select Car Leasing Burton-on-Trent
“Having my company put me forward for the award made me feel very valued. Even if an apprentice or younger employee doesn’t go on to win an award, the confidence it can give them that their company values their work and feels they deserve recognition for it is invaluable.”
Ruby Birks , Project manager at Purpose Media
“I have taken a lot of skills away from the Generation Next events and webinars that I have attended, which have helped further me in my career.”
Ella Sheppard , Senior associate and solicitor at Nelsons
“I know looking back at my career I would have really welcomed a network like Generation Next. The project is here to support the next generation of business leaders in their career journeys. Whether you are looking at getting your next promotion, thinking of starting your own business or you are just looking to develop your knowledge, experiences and meet likeminded connections, the network can help you build your future within the East Midlands.”
Lucy Robinson, Generation Next lead and director of resources at East Midlands Chamber
