Teens On Tuesday

School Speakers is passionate about teen entrepreneurs and supporting young people in business. Claire Young just heard about a fantastic event that Jacqueline Gold is running through her Twitter stream on Tuesday 20th December. The competition is called Teens on Tuesday, or #TOT, and is a one off event designed to complement her regular Wednesday competition for female entrepreneurs which she calls Women on Wednesday (#WOW).
Jacqueline Gold has a very successful career working as CEO of Anne Summers and Knickerbox and is undoubtedly an inspiration to male and female businessmen across the UK.
With such a fantastic career herself, Jacqueline is dedicated to inspiring and helping other people get their first step on the ladder when setting up their own business. The competition will involve teenagers (under 20's) with small businesses tweeting to Jacqueline about their business and what makes it so special. Jacqueline will then pick the 3 businesses that she thinks have the most potential and re-tweets them as well as giving a brief explanation as to why she thinks they're great. It's excellent exposure for these teen businesses as Jacqueline has around 18 k followers, many of whom are influential in the business and entrepreneurship fields.
The winners will also receive permission to place her TOT badge on their website – letting the world know that Jacqueline thinks their business is great.
This is a really fun competition designed to generate publicity for small businesses that are set up by pro-active teenagers with a drive to success. If you have a business, and are under 20 years old – then don’t forget to tweet @Jacqueline_Gold with the hashtag #TOT between 1-2pm on Tuesday 20th December. This is a great opportunity boys and girls- don’t miss out!
