Former Dragon James Caan CBE becomes Enterprise Ambassador of Children’s Parliament

<?xml encoding=”utf-8″ ??>

The Wakelet Microsoft 365 Children’s Parliament backed by The Express, is proud to announce that James Caan CBE, the former Chairman of the UK Government’s Start-up Loans Scheme and former Chairman of The Big Issue, will be joining the organisation as its Enterprise Ambassador.

Mr. Caan will be meeting with 7-11 year old children in Westminster to discuss the opportunities presented by the gig economy and how they can operate as “Me Inc” by adopting an entrepreneurial mindset. He believes that young people have the potential to become successful entrepreneurs or work with an ‘entrepreneurial mindset’, even if they choose to work in the world of flexible contracts.

“I am excited to be working with the Children’s Parliament to help young people understand the incredible opportunities presented by the gig economy and the role of Artificial Intelligence,” said Caan.

Caan, who also recently took on the role as chair of the Outstanding Achievement category of the Business Champion Awards said: “Artificial Intelligence is not your enemy, in fact, it allows you – as Me Inc – to compete with multinational corporations, and I look forward to helping young people learn how to adapt and thrive in this new economy.”

As Enterprise Ambassador, Caan will be working with children to educate and inspire them to think about their future careers and the opportunities for self-employment. He will be sharing his knowledge and experience to help young people better understand the gig economy and how to succeed in it.

The Wakelet Microsoft 365 Children’s Parliament is committed to providing educational and empowering opportunities for young people to learn about democracy and civic engagement as well as the economy and technology.
