Inspiring Young Men

When a panellist who has played premiership league football, DJ’d around the globe for Gatecrasher and become a partner in one of the world’s largest law firms tells us he is the “least interesting story on the panel”, we know we are at a good event.

All of the panellists at the “Inspiring Young Men” conference were outstanding and really did inspire us with their career stories, videos of their work and the answers to our questions.

The event was for high achieving young men from all three Christ the King sites and there were ten of us present from the St Mary’s site.  We thought the best part, apart from the thought and intelligence with which the stories were told, was the variety of professions the panel represented: from the army to entrepreneurs; from lawyers (via professional football) to designers, we had a wide range of experience and expertise to learn from.

Having attended two major conferences with inspiring people since joining the college (the other involving a Game of Thrones actor and professional magician) we agreed one common message from all of the speakers: ‘seize every chance to learn and engage with the fantastic range of opportunities CTK offers us’ …. this was one of the best.
