The Pilbara generates a spirit of entrepreneurship. It was my role to harness this in our young people and guide them to articulate a problem they’d observed and find a creative solution. Through a series of after-school Creative Enterprise workshops, participants identified their product, packaged it up, created an associated brand, and were able to pitch their creative product to ‘investors’. I was constantly impressed with how they energetically put their new skills into practice, and congratulate the creative entrepreneurs who sold out of their products at the end of year Portside Twilight Christmas Market.”
