A SOCIETY run by students at Highbury College who want to get ahead in the world of business has won an award.

Collective Futures was named College Society of the Year at the National Association of College and University Entrepreneurs Leadership Summit.

It faced competition from 50 other colleges to take the award during an evening ceremony held at the Institute of Directors in London.

The society was also nominated for New Society of the Year, and Wendy Funnell, head of the college’s Centre for Entrepreneurship, was short-listed for the Enterprise Champion award.

The society’s president Adam Greenough and vice president Phillip Menjou travelled to the IoD with Wendy to collect the award.

Adam said: ‘To get recognised for our efforts and go on to beat 50 other FE colleges is incredible.’
