(L-R) Anthi and Shadelle

Two more people have joined the Generation Next board of champions.

Taking the group that steers the East Midlands young professionals’ network up to 13 people are Anthi Karyofylli and Shadelle Dickson-Morris, who are students at headline partner the University of Derby.

Anthi is studying business and management while running a small Instagram-based business selling handmade accessories – alongside a voluntary role as sales and marketing assistant for a friend’s company.

Law student Shadelle is embarking on a career change after previously working in healthcare. She aims to complete her LPC qualification after university and become a solicitor.

Professor Kamil Omoteso, pro vice-chancellor and dean of the College of Business, Law and Social Sciences at the University of Derby, said they were chosen from a field of top candidates after a rigorous selection and interview process.

“The appointment of Anthi and Shadelle to the Generation Next Champions Board is a significant new stage of our partnership with East Midlands Chamber on this brilliant initiative,” he said.


Generation Next is a support network for young professionals aged between 18 and 35 based in the East Midlands. Its membership package gives young workers access to its events programme – which connects delegates with likeminded individuals, as well as leading business professionals from across the region, to build their networks and skills.
