Dream Forward Motivational SpeakerPosted on: 13/05/2019
Continuing with the work Mrs Beccan and Mr Williams have set up with a core group of students this year, our students were recently visited by Levi Francis who currently works as Head of Pricing in the Insurance industry and is also a motivational speaker. Levi went from achieving one GCSE, a B grade in Mathematics, to being commended by the House of Commons as one of the top students in London for achieving a First Class Honours degree in Actuarial Science. Levi, who attended a school in Watford, was very open and honest about his personal struggles, troubled past and successes once leaving high school and taking a second chance at education, which allowed him to flourish in the Business & Insurance industry. Students from Years 10, 11 and the Sixth Form were encouraged to ask questions, which varied from dealing with exam/peer pressure to overcoming tough challenges in life and barriers to success. Throughout the session, Levi highlighted what it takes and the characteristics needed to be successful in life, how to deal with setbacks and ways to overcome negativity.
