Students from sixth form colleges around the country were invited to attend our recent Leadership Symposium event to hear from and network with leaders in the food / drink industry and sports personalities. Speakers at the event included Paralympian Hannah Cockroft,  President and Chief Executive of Walmart International, Dave Cheesewright and Alison Horner, Chief People Officer at Tesco.

Here some students from Collyers, a sixth form college in West Sussex explain why they were so inspired by the speakers and delegates at this high profile annual event which raises funds for Working Options and Grocery Aid.
