Enterprise Forum

What succeeds in Norfolk can be surprising. Despite outwardly appearing an isolated rural backwater, it’s also a place where achieving what looks impossible can be easier to do than you might think.

Who’d have imagined that a chef from the prestigious Taj Hotel in Mumbai, would succeed in setting up an acclaimed Indian Cookery School in mid Norfolk – but this is exactly what Madhu Choudray did.

Who’d have expected a professional, international fundraiser to create an award winning Farmers’ Market at North Creake – but this is what Diana Brocklebank Scott did, despite being told many times it was simply not going to work.

On Weds 28th September between 1800 and 2030 at Fakenham Racecourse we heard Diana and Madhu tell their stories. How they found being in Norfolk an advantage and how local organisation ‘The Norfolk Way’ is encouraging Norfolk youngsters to set high goals for their lives, then go out and achieve them.
