Why do Top 30 Under 30?

My experience as a local boy, growing up through the local school system at Kelvin Hall, and subsequently Wyke College form the basis of my motivation to contribute to positive promotion of the Humber region. At the time, Kelvin was extremely old fashioned, with temporary portacabins being a mainstay. A little later, a Channel 4 programme became the talk of the town as Hull was labelled as the worst place to live in the UK.

My impression of where I was from was one of pure negativity, and as a bright, career hungry individual I believed my future lied away from the area.Fast forward 13 years, I now have a very different impression of the region. I have my business here, and I believe in the Humber making a real success of itself. In my view, we now have a responsibility of relaying those positive stories back to the next generation to ensure we don’t lose talent to alternative areas of the country unnecessarily and continue the positivity around the region created by Hull’s successful City of Culture year.

By giving businesses the platform to highlight and celebrate their talent, I feel we can help positively promote, educate and highlight businesses and careers in an interesting and engaging way that can contribute to the Careers, Education & Advice sector. It is so important that we positively promote careers in the Humber and your contributions today in buying tickets and being a part of our filming process will help towards pushing those stories out.

The message needs to be clear and united. You can live, work, earn and prosper in the Humber region. You can be aspirational and stay. There are many exciting careers and opportunities on your front door step. Our 30 demonstrate that it can and does happen.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
