Perseverance central to success
Congratulations to all the teams in the 2016-17 Welwyn Hatfield Dragons Apprentice Challenge. This is the fourth year Red Potato have worked with Welwyn Hatfield Council to deliver the Challenge. Each year there seems to be some common element to the teams; this year it was perseverance.

The Challenge involves groups of young people working together with local businesses and charities over approximately six months. Each year the groups of young people go through a process of forming and developing as a team. This year the process of “form, reform, split up, make up” happened again. What was different though was the perseverance shown by team members. Why is that important? Well, the ability to keep going with the Challenge despite changes to the team, was an important factor in the teams that were succcessful. The ability to keep going, to persevere despite the set backs is important. And crucially that grit and determination to make things work came through, in the team presentations. So, congratulations to all the teams for their achievements! Perseverance is a key quality for potential entrepreneurs. Based upon the 2017/18 Welwyn Hatfield Dragons Apprentice Challenge it looks like the teams have learnt a lot about perseverance, lessons that will help them in their future careers.
