Discover how Helen Bennett inspires our future generation of leaders by bringing together deserving teenagers and business leaders in Bennett's Business Bash.

Helen is the founder of Human Reality, a training & human resources consultancy. When Helen got involved with a local school to conduct mock interviews, she realised that for some, their lack of confidence could be attributed to a lack of social skills and aspiration.

Determined to change this, Helen organised the first Bennett's Business Bash for a small group of disadvantaged teenagers to sit down for dinner with senior business and organisational leaders in a first class venue.

In this show Helen shares the challenges, the lessons, and insights gained.

  • How one teenager banged on the door to be let in.
  • When she realised she needed to do a crash course in handshaking.
  • What nearly caused a riot.
  • Why one teenager said "it's the first time I've been made to feel really special"
