Andy Rubin, Chairman of Pentland Brands, Visits Ashmole Academy
On Thursday 10th May, Andy Rubin, Chairman of Finchley based company Pentland Brands visited Ashmole to give a talk to Year 12 and 13 students about his education, career and family business.
‘The talk was interesting and insightful. It was good to hear that he studied Law as a route into business. It has opened my mind to new courses other than a Business degree.’ Omar, Year 12
‘I thought the talk was interesting and delivered very well as he spoke to us like adults. In the third part of his talk, he made careers very relevant to us and showed us that you don’t have to like Business as a subject to go into business.’ Osman, Year 12
‘The speaker was very informative and engaging. He focussed on his business, which was interesting. He made sure he kept the talk topical and showed us how we can tailor our future. He told us about his career and made it relevant to us. He also answered questions professionally.’ Richard, Year 12
‘It was a great experience and I’m sure all students gleaned valuable knowledge from one of the UK’s most successful entrepreneurs. On behalf of the 6th Form, I want to thank him again for taking the time to visit and deliver this talk.’ Kishan, Head Boy, Year 13
