Thank you goes to Ayfer Mack-Poole who put me in contact with James Marshall from Speaker Trust. 

James ran a one and a half day conference for the Year 9 BTEC Business students on the topic of Finance.  The students were taught how to speak publically and professionally.   It was a challenging conference but the transformation of the students from nervousness to confidence was absolutely amazing.  James proved to be a great inspiration to all of the students.

The winner of the conference was Ramandeep Rai 9RCH and Bernadette Obode 9HYS was judged as runner up.  Both these students will attend a Finally Speaking final with me, to be held at Fleet Street on 24thApril 2012.

Well done to all!

Lisa Hobbs

Head of Business

PS A special mention should be made to Harry Starbuck 9RCH who was equally outstanding.  His speech was about a ‘rag and bone’ man who I suppose would have been very enterprising in that day and age!
