Invest in Your Success is all about inspiring young people about their futures and, in particular, getting them to think about opportunities they wouldn’t considered. On 24th November 2011, SATRO organised inspirational speakers Estelle Hughes and Saffron da Silva to talk to 100 year 9 students at Bishop David Brown School.
Estelle, Managing Director at 3Line Media, showed some great clips demonstrating how she put together her TV programme; from how they design the characters to developing story lines and also how 3Line Media produces the animation .
Saffron, Head of News at Eagle Radio, stood and chatted to the students with no props and engaged them by asking questions to discover if they knew what path they wanted to take. She also shared with the students how she was nervous and uncertain of her career at their age.
Both speakers were absolutely fantastic and kept over 100 year 9’s interested and quiet the whole time, no easy feat! Even the staff at the school were extremely impressed. Sean Furness, a new member of staff at Bishop David Brown School, said “It was my first experience of the work SATRO do in schools and the impact they can have - I'm now very much looking forward to the Soap Challenge”.
