Justine gave a fascinating talk on how a career in finance led to her becoming the CEO of Mumsnet, outlying her motivations, twists and turns through her career in a candid and thought-inspiring manner.

Justine shared advice on how to succeed in business and life in general. Her emphasis on not being afraid to fail and the value of enthusiasm and passion over academic ability particularly struck a chord with the pupils, leading to a number of questions from the pupils about their own life choices.
