What we do

A network of today’s most influential figures across business, arts, politics and more donating their time and opening up their businesses for ambition-fuelling experiences.

Set up by Robert Peston, we help state schools access the top opportunities for their young people through inspiring school talks and
eye-opening work experience placements, entirely free of charge.
