Bridgham teenager Liam Dawes has received an insight into the various aspects of business life, during aweek's work experience “tour” organised by his near neighbour and assistant director of chartered accountants Lovewell Blake, Mike Brown.

Liam, 17, and currently studying A-levels at Wymondham College, relishes the thought of entering the business world and is already planning to set up his own business.

So Mike Brown organised for him to spend a week with different professional firms all over the county, to give him his first real taste of the business world.

"Liam has just passed his motorbike test and he reminds me of myself when I first started work, travelling on a motorbike with a hunger for business," said Mike. "He is now making decisions about his future career and I wanted to be able to show him just some of the opportunities available with a number of different companies that I work with regularly in my role at Lovewell Blake."
