Assistant principal Aaron Smith said: “David Dein delivered a truly inspirational presentation to students.”

Mr Smith explained that Daniel’s speech was enlightening, motivating and packed with great advice on being successful from his vast personal real life experiences.

His visit was on behalf of Speakers for Schools, a network of today’s most influential figures across business, arts, politics and more donating their time and opening up their businesses for ambition fuelling experiences.

“We found the presentation really entertaining, and personally what I found most inspiring were his tips on interviewing skills,” said a year 10 student, Sophie.
