To celebrate the launch of Workable at IQL, we’re launching an Instagram competition on Wednesday 17th July for budding entrepreneurs and start-ups to apply for a free space at Workable Summer School from 12-16 August 2019.

Workable Summer School attendees will hear from inspirational business mentors who’ll offer expert advice on how to build a brand.

Bestselling author and passionate cook Melissa Hemsley - one half of entrepreneurial sister duo Hemsley & Hemsley - is dedicated to mentoring and helping others achieve their goals as a mentor for the Creative Mentor Network.

Melissa said, “Building a brand is a really exciting but nerve-wracking experience, regardless of what field you’re in, and our journey was made so much easier by mentors who helped us along the way. Getting inspiration and support from other people running businesses is invaluable to growing your brand, so I’m thrilled to be working alongside Workable on this competition and look forward to meeting London’s best up-and-coming entrepreneurs!”

With a host of other inspirational mentors on board to run sessions at the Summer School, attendees will gain valuable advice from those in the know on how to manage, promote and scale their businesses.

The wide-ranging topics will include how to promote health & wellbeing at work, developing confidence when presenting, the importance of sustainability, harnessing creativity, developing a PR plan, and maximising social media.

The Summer School will equip start-ups and entrepreneurs with the essential skills and knowledge to build their businesses, as well making meaningful business connections.

The competition is open to graduates, young professionals, entrepreneurs and small business owners in greater London, Kent and Essex. To enter, applicants need to submit a 60 second pitch video on Instagram on why they deserve a place.

Applications to attend the Workable Summer School are now open and close on Monday 29th July at 9.30pm. Further details and T&Cs can be found at
