Inspiring the businessmen and women of tomorrow, a former winner of The Apprentice spoke to pupils about their future careers.

St Edward’s Church of England School and Sixth Form College, London Road, Romford, welcomed 2014 winner of the business show Mark Wright who talked all about how he came to be on the show, his own internet and marketing service business and his experiences on The Apprentice.

More than £500 was also raised for charity The Dream Factory which grants wishes of children with life-threatening conditions, through Mark’s fee and children paying to listen to his talk.

Head of Mars College Sarah Allen said: “Our teacher Emily Hill did a great job of organising for Mark Wright to visit and talk about his career in business.

“The pupils absolutely loved seeing someone so young doing so well.”
