As the director of enterprise and internationalism at Manchester Academy, Delfino is working tirelessly to improve the prospects of young people in the deprived Moss Side area, reinventing the relationship between business and education in the process.
Working with the likes of global law firm Pincent Masons, the NHS and Manchester University, the students are involved in shadowing programmes, business lunches (a crash course in social poise) and Dragons’ Den-style pitches. Delfino’s even setting up six-week internships for students over the summer.
The Academy and the business community understand that it is only by working together that both will create the results they need: educated kids in an orderly society.
