Sixthformers at the Stamford Endowed Schools enjoyed a morning of expert advice on how to be successful in business.
The Secrets of Successful Entrepreneurs morning took place on Tuesday and included such distinguished guest speakers as governor John Y Brown, the former governor of Kentucky and founder of the Kentucky Fried Chicken Franchise, and Jodie Farran, founder of Shaken Udders, a natural milkshake company.
The event was organised by global animal health and nutrition company Alltech, based in Stamford.
The students were then given the chance to put the principles they had heard from the speakers into practice by creating their own fictitious brands and presenting their ideas to their peers and the guests.
The 70 Year 12 and 13 students in attendance are studying for their business studies A-level.
