At last week’s CABE AGM Patrick Regan, CEO of XLP looked at the key issues for those living on the margins of society and how we can respond to those issues.

His talk provided a vision of how our society can be changed by focussing on individuals, building relationships and building hope.  This is true for our businesses as well for the projects run by XLP.  The success of XLP and the high regard in which it is held is because of, not despite it being rooted in the Christian faith.  Again an important lesson for us in business – we do not need to hide the fact that our faith is the driver for our business practices.

As part of the talk we were introduced to Cherry, an inspirational young woman who comes from a family situation as tough as they can possibly be but, whom through her own hard work, the support of XLP and their contacts with Barclays she has gone onto become their Apprentice of the Year.  Importantly she has aspirations to go much further.  She is not unique and XLP provides a programme to help their young people who engage with the world of work.

Key questions for us as business people

What can my business do to create hope?

How can we empower individuals to be the best that they can be?

Do we write off young people who do not come from the backgrounds we are used to recruiting from?

Visit CABEs FaceBook or LinkedIn pages to join the debate.

Please let Jayne know that you intend to come.
