Inspiring our future entreprenurs

Published: 10.03.2023 ( a year ago )

The sessions take place at Mostyn Gallery and function as an informal space for two to three professionals, from various industry or workplace backgrounds

They will highlight a range of different career paths and hopefully inspire our pupils.

The first session featured Alice Paice, who founded Bert’s an award-winning campsite and restaurant in Trefor, Gwynedd, after spending five years travelling the world with her young family in tow.

She is currently creating a training program to inspire and support young people in rural Wales as well as mentoring small hospitality start-ups. Never standing still and permanently on the hunt for new projects.

Interior designer Eunice Aubert also spoke to the pupils about her career. She has travelled extensively and lived in numerous places including Hong Kong and Australia, these experiences have enhanced her deep appreciation for art, culture and the built environment.

Head of Sixth Form Owen Davis said: “We have such a strong community, and now that the pressure and restrictions or Covid have passed I thought it would be great to utilise our parents to help spark an interest, broaden horizons and create a sense of "what if?"

I really feel like regular opportunities for our pupils to engage and listen to successful businesspeople and entrepreneurs will really inspire them.”

After the talk Vincent in Year 13, said: “I liked the talk because I was able to gain a lot of knowledge pick up at some of their experience. They also managed to motivate and inspire me.”

Toran added: “The entrepreneurial talk was both totally inspiring and resonated perfectly with me as a Sixth Form student at St David’s College.”
