I would like to say thank you for all your efforts in delivering the project, the engagement with our residents has been beneficial. We recognise that the work of Beyond Brilliance has given our residents the opportunity to explore new avenues and to build on self-confidence and I am sure that this has made a positive impact on their lives.

Michaela Hardwick is a rarity – a business professional who uses her excellent skills and depth of experience to build vital links between education, communities and the commercial world. I’ve been lucky enough to be invited to be part of a Beyond Brilliance CIC project, which I found inspiring and motivating. The work done by Michaela and her fellow directors to help give young people not only confidence in their own abilities, but also the self-belief to go out into the wider business world is impressive. Half of the battle when dealing with young people is being able to communicate with them. Michaela has the innate ability to relate on all levels, from reaching out to a group of youngsters to dealing with the chief executives of major organisations. I loved working with her and Beyond Brilliance, and hope to do so again in the future.

I have learnt to be open about things and am more prepared to ask questions and talk to people more instead of shying away. I know more about my skills and I am prepared to try something new rather than ignore them as I think I can’t do them.
I have learnt some new skills and stuff about myself. I have also learnt a lot about the industry I want to work in and I thoroughly enjoyed the work experience day.
I have learnt about positive language and I now feel able to say what it is I want and I can tell people this better than I could in the past. I have discovered my skills and am prepared to use them. I have also increased in confidence and feel more able to talk to people.
