Business Society based at the University of Chester Business School
In August 2019, Chloe, Cheryl and Franceska founded Outside the box. A business skills and self development society which focuses on providing experiences, facilitating experimentation and enhancing the skillbase of our members by exposing them (and us!) to new digital platforms, business skills and business events. Realising that the opportunities provided by our university courses do not always involve all of the practical skills desired by employers, we wanted to address this directly by setting up a business society that will put our members at the forefront of raw business.
Focusing on practical skills more than theoretical skills, we aim to provide projects and activities that our members can engage with, that provide the soft skills and hard skills that employers are looking for, putting our members at a competitive advantage when they move forward in the future.
