Student, Leigh Academy School “It was actually really good, I have made loads of contacts.”

Pam Manwaring, Orchard Garage “I really enjoyed it. I know some of the students were nervous, but they conducted themselves so well. It was brilliant to hear their plans and ambitions and so good to hear so many with entrepreneurial spirit. Very impressed.”
