Public Talk

  • Rachel Blackburn was pleased to be the first speaker for the new Consulting Society at UEA on Monday 13 November.

    Around 30 enthusiastic students attended to learn about US2U Consulting, how Rachel got into the consultancy sector, the pros and cons of running a consultancy business and the key learning points from her career.

    The evening started with the launch of the US2U Consulting Positive Difference music track which set the scene regarding some of the services we deliver for clients and also the energy required to be an effective consultant!

  • Following the positive news that unemployment figures are continuing to fall in Norfolk, with the claimant count for the previous month dropping by 320, US2U Consulting continues to support young people in the region into employment. As part of this, Rachel Blackburn spoke at the Norwich For Jobs'Monday Support Club' held at the Department for Work and Pensions Norwich office on Monday 17 July.

    The Monday Support Club is made up of young people aged 18-24 who are currently receiving benefits, but who have various mental health difficulties which are preventing them from moving forward.

    When speaking about her journey prior to starting US2U Consulting, Rachel used the 'Glass Half Full' analogy to stress the importance of positivity and constant reflection. By referring to US2U Consulting's Newest Recruit Lee Casey, Rachel was able to demonstrate her work as part of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership Youth Pledge Marque, and also went on to discuss the importance of goal setting and having confidence.

    "This morning was a great opportunity for the attendees of the Monday Support Club to really develop their confidence moving forward. It was great to see so many people get involved in the discussions and I am confident that the practical take home messages Rachel delivered can have a lasting positive impact" commented Joanne McLeod, Norwich For Jobs Project Officer.

    This talk ties into the work that US2U Consulting has been doing as part of the New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership Youth Pledge Marque.

    We look forward to continuing to support young people in the region in the future!
