As always, I enjoy speaking to students at these events. We all appreciate the need to encourage the next generation and Founders4Schools gives me an opportunity to help teachers connect their pupils with the outside world. It’s a big responsibility. At all of the schools I have visited, these students are completely engaged and looking to us for inspiration.
Founders4Schools said this of the event:
instead of burdening students with the uncertainty of what the next chapter of their education holds, the speakers inspired the students with their insight into the exciting opportunities awaiting them.
