"Alex, your business workshop was a real hit with our year 10 students and sixth form. They thoroughly enjoyed your real-life stories and the examples you shared were interesting and definitely something we could all relate to. Your workshop has created a real buzz and has energised our students. Thanks for your infectious enthusiasm - we'd definitely love to have you back again." Steven Mintz, King David High School, Manchester
"Just a quick note to say how much we all enjoyed Alex’s talk. He was an absolute trooper getting through 2 hours of talking with his voice slowly getting more hoarse! The students were fascinated by his story and the advice he gave them was priceless. Nothing I could have told them about the world of work could have had so much impact. The students were rapt and he responded very well to their questions. The talk was very memorable, funny and informative. We will definitely be looking to book him again next year."
