Welcome to the October DYWICH Newsletter

Monsterfest – Education Day

Monsterfest rock festival returns for a second year at the Ironworks, Inverness on 15th and 16th November.  This year, the festival is offering all local secondary school pupils the chance to hear from people involved in the music industry on a specially arranged education day.

In partnership with DYW, the team at  Monsterfest, are running creative workshops to give pupils a real insight into a career in music; the skills needed and routes into the industry.  While based around the music business it is not only for those who are musically talented; the workshops look at the different business elements as a whole from marketing, PR and leadership & management with the hope of inspiring pupils to consider this exciting sector.

On the day, there will be four workshops that each of the pupils will visit in rotation;

  • Music Industry Inspiration & Information
  • Marketing & PR
  • Promotions & Events
  • Life as a performer on the road & careers after

Date: Thursday 14th November 2019

Time: 1100 – 1500

Location: Ironworks – Inverness

Places are limited; please email eilidh@dywich.co.uk to book on to this event.

Final call for S4-S6 Girls!
Future Asset wants YOU!
 28th November 2019 
Time: 0930 – 1300
Location: Inverness Caledonian Thistle Stadium

Future Asset are hosting a half-day workshop giving S4-S6 girls from a range of schools an introduction to investment: what it is, why it is more varied and interesting than you might think and how there are lots of attractive careers available – and they don’t all require a maths degree!

At the Roadshow, girls will work with investment professionals to assume the role of “Dragon” in the Dragons’ Den, choosing where to invest their clients’ money.  And have the chance to play our Investment Boardgame; managing a £100 million “Portfolio” including shares in Apple, Nike and Unilever. How will they react to Samsung’s phones catching fire, Rory McIlroy signing with Adidas, or reports of human rights abuses at Nasty Oil and Gas?

There are 40 places at the Inverness event, and Future Asset would like to invite four or five per school to come along with a teacher or adviser if possible.  (There is no requirement for the girls to be studying business or maths)
