Students from Collyer’s College in Horsham Surrey were among 100 students invited to attend our annual Leadership Symposium free of charge this month.
The event which featured high profile speakers from the food, drink and grocery retail industry including Sir Terry Leahy, Steve Murrells, Kate Swann and Ash Amirahmadi gives students the opportunity to hear from and network with leaders from industry.
Lucy Hargreaves, employability programme co-ordinator at Collyer’s, who attended with the students said:
“We work very closely with Working Options in Education, who have run numerous workshops with Collyer’s. This kind of access to top-level business is such a privilege. The kind donation of thousands of pounds worth of tickets for this event made this a wonderful opportunity that our students simply jumped at.”
