Yeah its really great that they can give something back and it was nice to see last night, all the big guys being passionate about giving young people the chance to set up their own businesses.

So well done shell!

I agree, BP profits were about 8.5 billion, and i dont see any community projects being set up by them, shell gives back to the community, and has inspired many young entrepreneurs. Well done Shell.

Hmmm, Lets not get into how great a company Shell is.

I am quite sure some members good give ten bad things about shell for every good thing you can think of.

Yes though the Livewire service is good though.


Please don't ban me.

I love this place so I have to say thanks for the fact that it exists. I also realise Shell is a business and is in the business of making money. I know they don't have to offer this service and I'm sure they have other benefits apart from the goodwill of helping us lot realise our dreams. I do think they could do a better job though, especially with profits like that. All I ask is an updated site/forum, which is on the way. When that arrives I'll want for nothing else from them.

Maybe I'm missing something, I have to admit I know little about the services and movements of Shell. What else do shell provide apart from this support forum and the awards?

Hey play, they have so many other schemes other than live wire, i only found this out after chatting to the exceutive director,wednesday night.
Here's a few of the shemes, shell springboard, shell step and shell education program that encourages young children to learn more about science!
Check out the link for more info on the other schemes http://www.shell.com/home/Framework?...ment_2005.html

I do think its amazing that they can give so much back to the community, more businesses should take note and do the same!
regards
