It was an early start for those who attended Watson’s first Business Breakfast, but the event was well worth getting up early for.
Around 70 pupils from S5 and S6, mainly studying Economics and Business Management, were joined by some 30 guests from the business world.
The Business Breakfast was organised by our Careers staff, following an approach from the Merchant Company Enterprise Committee. Members of the Committee were in attendance on the day and were among the representatives of commerce and industry with whom our pupils had the opportunity to mingle.
A particular focus to the morning was provided by keynote speaker, Imran Khand, CEO of Glasgow-based software company Picsel Technologies. Mr Khand was inspirational during his address to our pupils, in which he emphasised that purpose and self-belief were key to success.
