Founder & MD Eluceo
Terri, the founder of Eluceo, which was set up in 2012 out of sheer frustration in the lack of support in career development. There was both nowhere to go and no-one to speak to. At the same time, everyone she knew was in the same boat.
Terri saw so very many of my talented friends going in the wrong career direction, regretting their first career moves, having no idea where to get help and no idea what else they could be doing. At the same time, she saw older people coming up to retirement and regretting they had spent so long on the wrong career path.
For the past eight years, under the Eluceo banner, she had been running STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and maths) projects in secondary schools, bringing in employers to help students better understand what science careers are available to them.
As she saw such wonderful potential and asked myself: “Are they going down the wrong track too?’ It reinforced my belief that a new, innovative and integrated solution was needed to support career development and lifelong learning, at every stage of the career lifecycle, and the dream of iShine was born.
