Chryston High

Today I was working with 150 S5/S6 pupils from Chryston High. The school had decided to hold the event at the newly built community hall of Chryston Church - this is a fantastic facility with floor to ceiling windows and great views of the surrounding countryside.
The pupils were magnificent and fully participated in the workshop

Pupil Comments

" Very funny,good information - I learned alot"
"It was good - I am now an official entrepreneur"
"Todays workshop was amazing - really inspirational"
" It taught me to aim high and not to be negative about myself"

When I read all the feedback comments I realise that it is an honour to have the privelage to influence the young people and encourage them to be "determined to succeed"

Today Matt and Helen were at Motherwell Concert Hall running a spectacular event for 200 P7 pupils from North Lanarkshire. The day was billed as "Enterprise is the business" with 25 teams of eight pupils participating and learning about the world of work and enterprise qualities. We all had great fun with a positive atmosphere, the pupils were excellent and demonstarted that in Lanarkshire we are "Determined to Succeed"
