Conference Invitation – Let’s tackle youth unemployment together


If you believe that all young people deserve the opportunity to reach their potential and would like to be involved in achieving that goal, this event is for you

You are invited to No One Left Behind a thought provoking conference on Friday 3rd March, at West Bromwich Albion Football Club, that will focus on the challenge of sustaining employment for young people and understanding the barriers they face.

Against a backdrop of significant national and international uncertainty, Talent Match Black Country is eager to deepen and strengthen relationships with partners and employers alongside the young people it exists to serve.  To help us do that we will be conducting some real time research supported by Jackie Le Fèvre of Magma Effect.

As you will see from the programme – available to view here – high profile contributors to the day’s vital dialogue include:

Professor Ian Oakes, Talent Match BC Chair
Helen Scurr, Managing Director of ARK Consultancy
Matt Poole, Head of Funding and at the Big Lottery Fund
Laura-Jane Rawlings, Founder & Chief Executive, Youth Employment UK

Starting at registration and continuing through other networking sessions, Jackie Le Fevre will chat with delegates to explore the organisational and individual values that matter most to them, gathering vital insights that will form part of, what promises to be, an engaging and revealing final session.  We are also delighted that Laura Brodrick of Think Big Picture will be joining us for the day with her 2m wide drawing board and coloured pens, as she skilfully interprets the key messages and discussions in graphic picture format.

If you too believe that all young people deserve the opportunity to prove themselves and are keen to get involved please register today as places are limited:


Kind regards
