We completed the 2017 Brainery!

We’ve worked hard to make our first Regeneration Brainery a reality, and our first year was (and we say this ourselves) incredible!!

We had so many inspiring mentors come to the Brainery to talk to the Brainees one-on0-one, giving advice, helping make connections and some even found internships. We also visited some extraordinary spaces in Bruntwood’s NEO building and the construction site for KAMPUS.

There were so many stories that it’s hard to pick our favourite, but one highlight in particular was our Brainee Richard who was due to start university soon but instead, after speaking to one of our property developer mentor Tim Heatley, chose to pursue a career as a developer (good luck Rich!).

It was exciting to see Brainees coming from so many different areas, backgrounds and educations– we had people coming from liverpool, cheshire, salford and some were just leaving school whereas others were starting out in their architecture studies. We couldn’t have predicted how the first Brainery would’ve turned out and now we can’t wait to get started on the next one!
