Now you have been at Millennium Point a couple of weeks, have either of you got a favourite event space yet?

Marie-Claire – ‘The Auditorium and Platform! There is nowhere else in the Midlands that is comparable to the Auditorium. The Auditorium is so impactful and offers such a range of technical provisions for clients. Platform looks like it belongs on a spaceship, and I like the different aspects of the space and that is manages to blend itself perfectly to all event types. I have never seen a space transform so much from an exhibition to an awards ceremony so effectively.’

Sukhy – ‘Definitely, I would agree Auditorium is an impressive space and there’s nowhere else like it! For me, I would say Connect. It’s flexibility provides a degree of versatility as a meeting and events space that I find really appealing.’

Vik, the Event Sales Manager, adds ‘I couldn’t agree more with both! The giant screen creates the wow factor, and it offers clients a great alternative to a traditional cabaret layout. Similarly, Connects versatility makes it a client favourite for a breadth of smaller events. from board and team meetings right through to workshops, training and away days.’

Millennium Point has a range of versatile event spaces, suitable for any event. Take a look at our available spaces on our website.

What’s your favourite part of events?

Sukhy – ‘A great new team and love working with new people. Millennium Point is just unique, so I love how being a part of an impressive building with all these amazing spaces to sell.’

Marie-Claire – ‘I love working with new people and the fact that every day and every event is different. Events can be though-provoking and challenging but never boring.’

What’s your dream event you wish you could plan?

Marie-Claire – ‘yet to plan a large-scale exhibition and although this wouldn’t be a ‘dream’ event for me to plan it would certainly be something new and exciting for me.

Sukhy – ‘I can’t think of a dream event as such but worked on a couple of events that included Royalty. They were for charity evets where Princess Anne was attending and a separate event with Prince Phillip. I’m very proud to have been a part of that.’

Profits from our commercial activity are invested by the Millennium Point Charitable Trust into projects, events and initiatives which support the growth of science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) and education in the West Midlands. 

The event saw digital employers including Goldman Sachs, Avanti West Coast, Pinsent Masons and Intercity Technology meet with 165 young women from schools across the West Midlands, at an event designed to raise awareness of careers in digital and technology, and in turn help improve diversity and encourage social mobility in the sector.

Following the success of three previous #GirlTechWM events funded by Millennium Point Trust and delivered by Ahead Partnership, this year’s event took place at Millennium Point in Birmingham on 29 April and saw 12-14 year-olds from 11 secondary schools across the region meet face-to-face with female role models working at organisations that employ digital talent. For many students this was the first opportunity to meet employers in person since the start of the pandemic.

Throughout this exciting tech and digital careers experience day, the young women had the opportunity to hear inspiring guest speeches from professionals including Jennifer Wait from Goldman Sachs and Amy Elliot, placement coordinator at SUMO Digital. The students also got involved in interactive workshops where they were able to ask questions to professionals already succeeding in roles like Senior Business Analyst, Placement Programmer and Chief People Officer, and a large scale challenge hosted by Avanti West Coast.

After learning about the different roles available to them and the skills required to succeed, 95% of the female students that attended said that they understood what skills they need to get into digital following the event. Meanwhile, the number of young women interested in digital careers following the event was an impressive 87%.

Stephanie Burras CBE, chief executive of Ahead Partnership, said:

“Our #GirlTech events are extremely popular and effective, with volunteers from a diverse range of businesses and organisations keen to get involved, share their experiences and promote the opportunities available within the digital and tech sector to young women beyond school.

“Our recent West Midlands event at Millennium Point was a great success; the feedback that we have received shows that the students found it really informative and the wide range of organisations involved demonstrates the real breadth of opportunity available to those hoping to thrive in a digital career. We targeted the event at young women in years eight and nine to help them apply their learning from the day when making their GCSE subject choices, and the students reported that #GirlTechWM has really helped to equip them with the knowledge and confidence to pursue their own paths in this thriving sector.”

Abbie Vlahakis, Chief Executive of Millennium Point Trust, also commented:

“#GirlTechWM is a really important initiative; we’re proud to work with Ahead Partnership to bring so many employers and young women together for a day of careers learning and inspiration.

“The event is always a fantastic opportunity for young women to meet with and learn from inspiring female role models pursuing successful careers in digital and technology – but it’s also a really rewarding experience for the businesses involved, enabling volunteers to make a meaningful contribution while showcasing the opportunities available for young women looking to succeed in tech roles at their own organisations.”

Sponsored by Millennium Point Trust, #GirlTechWM was free for schools to attend. Businesses involved in the wide range of activities taking place throughout the day were Avanti West Coast; Pinsent Masons; Sumo Digital; Goldman Sachs; Intercity Technology; Spica; Lanchester Archive; Allianz; SES Engineering; BAM Construction; and InMoment.

Last #GirlTechWM events have showing excellent results in improving awareness. Ahead Partnership wrote how a past event encouraged a 155% increase. ‘Seeking to initiate real change, activity was targeted at Year 8 students and focused on reaching out to young people of typically underrepresented demographics in the sector before they make important decisions about their future pathways. Successfully raising awareness and promoting interest in technology careers, the event encouraged a 155% increase in the number of students that were now considering working in digital compared to before the event.’

YOU WM are bringing together leaders of the Birmingham Communities for a launch of you WM on Monday 4th April at Millennium Point from 18:00 – 19:30 to meet and talk to leaders and young people from the YOU WM organisations and to hear more about YOU WM.

The event is based on the successful YOU London which has been running for some years.

Registration is free and can be booked via Eventbrite here.

About YOU WM – Bringing leaders and young people together

YOU WM is a new collaboration of the 11 Youth organisations in uniform in the urban West Midlands, youth organisations involved include Army Cadets; Boys’ Brigade, Combines Cadet Forces, Fire Cadets, Girl Guiding, Girls Brigade, RAF Air Cadets, Sea Cadets, Scouts, St John’s Ambulance, and the Volunteer Police Cadets.

The development of YOU WM has been led by the WM Lieutenancy with support from West Midlands RFCA and leaders of the eleven organisations and is based on the successful YOU London.

They will be bringing together leaders from Birmingham for a launch of YOU WM to meet and talk to leaders and young people from the YOU WM organisations and hear more about YOU WM. The Lord Lieutenant of West Midlands, Mr John Crabtree OBE will be in attendance.

An impactful event for young people

YOU WM will support the eleven organisations by adding value in four ways –

Why have a YOU WM?

There is considerable evidence that participation by a young person in a uniformed youth organisation can play a major, and sometimes a life-changing, part in the development of the skills and confidence needed to fulfil their potential and to enable them to play an active role as a citizen in our communities. Currently some 20,000 young people are involved in the urban West Midlands. Many more could benefit, if they knew the benefits and what was available local to them and if there were sufficient adult volunteers to achieve expansion.

Join YOU WM at Millennium Point and get involved

The free event is still available for registration through Eventbrite, join us to learn, grow and inspire.

There is just under one month left to see the earth in a free exhibition at Millennium Point. To celebrate a fantastic first month, Millennium Point’s CEO Abbie Vlahakis caught up with the Artist behind Gaia, Luke Jerram to chat more about the piece and his inspirations behind it.

Gaia will be at Millennium Point until the 28th March. The free to attend event requires no booking and is open everyday to the public until 11pm. Hundreds of people from across Birmingham and the wider region have marvelled at the breath-taking earth artwork, which combines NASA satellite imagery with an awe-inspiring soundtrack to invoke a sense of profound love for the earth.

‘A long-term relationship with Millennium Point’

This isn’t the first time Luke Jerram’s work has visited Millennium Point – in 2005 120 guests packed into Thinktank Science Museum for a mass experimental concert that lasted throughout the night. Then again in 2017, Luke Jerram’s Museum of the Moon visited Thinktank which was accompanied by a musical composition created award-winning composer Dan Jones.

Gaia and Millennium Point

We wanted everyone to have a memorable time at Millennium Point during Gaia. That’s why, along with the breath-taking Gaia, we unveiled an exciting events programme.

We had date night sorted with a special Valentine’s screening of Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo + Juliet with prosecco. Guests enjoyed their drinks while gazing at Gaia before their film started.

There was plenty of fun for families too, with a series of special film screenings during February half-term. On Friday 25th February, we got ready to go ‘under the sea’ and enjoyed Disney classic The Little Mermaid on the big screen. And on Saturday 26th February, youngsters watched an adventure of a lifetime with a screening of fan favourite Moana.

Moana film screening

The fun didn’t stop there, throughout half-term, Millennium Point, in partnership with Thinktank Science Museum ran a series of interactive drop-in sessions for families and children, hosted under Gaia. From fun-filled experiments and activities to demonstrations and performances, the programme highlighted the fascinating world of environmental science and the actions we can all take to help protect the planet.

For a quiet getaway, Maria Widdows guided yoga sessions under Gaia. We joined her as she led a grounding, balancing yoga practice. The sessions were enjoyed were enjoyed by yoga enthusiasts as well as newbies to the practice.

And lastly, on coming up on Saturday 19th March, visitors can see the world in a whole new light, as they enjoy Silent Disco under Gaia.

For a festive treat, we showed the modern classic Christmas movie, Love Actually. Visitors sat back to watch the film, along with a few glasses of festive cheer (wine) and some movie trivia presented by the charming movie geeks The Wine Events Company.
