Nationwide Speaker motivates able Year 8 Students

On Monday 6 June 2016 the term started with guest speaker Sara Bennison, Chief Marketing Officer,  Nationwide presenting to our 'able' Year 8 students. They listened intently as Sara described her background and the path she had taken to become Nationwide's Chief Marketing Officer, working for a London Agency and other global brands along the way. She emphasized how important school is as it gives them the building blocks to the career that they really want.

Education is precious
Work out your superpower
Put in more than you hope to get out.

Students were also given a taste of what a career in Advertising or Marketing would be like, what sort of person it would suit and the qualifications needed.

Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.
Mark Twain.

 

A big thanks to Sara for such an inspiring talk and giving our students such insight into the wider world of marketing and advertising.
