Phil Clarke awarded University Advisor of the Year

We are pleased to report that the Enactus UK University Advisor of the Year award (South) has been awarded to our very own, Phil Clarke.

The dedication and commitment to the Enactus ethos has been recognised and rewarded at this national forum. It is a triumph for the whole team.

Phil Clarke, The Hive Business Mentor, Enactus NTU Advisor.

We are pleased to report that the Enactus UK University Advisor of the Year award (South) has been awarded to our very own, Phil Clarke.

Enactus is a global network of students, academics and business leaders in a not-for-profit organisation active in over 1,650 universities across 36 countries. Guided by university and business advisers, the students form a student-led Enactus team to develop sustainable projects which create economic opportunity for others.

Phil has been supporting NTU's Enactus team since the very start and has played a big part in the teams progression over the past few years, something highly appreciated by the Enactus NTU team and now recognised on a national level. The award is split into two categories with a South and North regional winner. Phil took the South, while the University of Sheffield took the North.

There are 56 active Enactus teams in the UK and this year's competition, which took place in London, featured 35 other teams and universities. NTU's team progressed right through to the national semi-finals and had a number of projects receive great recognition and reach individual finals (some received financial rewards despite not winning outright).

The Core project became a finalist and finished third in the Tesco Individual Topic Competition - Female Empowerment award. Their work has been helping local women who have experienced trauma build up their confidence, by selling and making an organic coffee exfoliator. This is done in partnership with Nottingham Women's Centre. The project also has a positive environmental impact, as the exfoliator is made by recycling waste coffee grounds.

Nottism project reached the final of the EY Individual Topic Competition - Youth Empowerment, while Venture became a finalist in the Wilko Individual Topic Competition - Sustainable Entrepreneurship. Nottism helps autistic teenagers gain soft skills and improve their employability (in partnership with Rosehill School), while Venture is helping veterans build confidence and integrate into society.

As well as these team awards, team leader and Enactus NTU president Liza Leikina was featured as one of the top three students in the Student Placement of The Year award.

It's been a great year for Enactus NTU and future is looking bright. New projects are in early development stages while the existing ones look set to go on and expand between now and next year's competition. And once again congratulations to Phil for his work with the team and recognition with the award.
