Lara Morgan tells students ‘the world is your oyster’

12 February 2018

Last week leading entrepreneur Lara Morgan gave a motivating talk to students at New City College, Hackney Campus. Reflecting on her own experiences, Lara delivered an inspiring speech about her impressive life achievements, encouraging the students to follow their ambitions and believe in their ability.

Lara, who has been a speaker with Speakers for Schools since 2015, opened her talk by compelling the students to ‘take a brave pill’ and achieve something out of their comfort zone.

Lara’s honest and frank references to her own experiences, resonated with the students. Describing how she built her business from nothing, Lara also spoke about her mistakes and the importance of not being afraid to ask for help and advice from peers. Importantly, she encouraged students to go the extra mile, believe in themselves and grab opportunities when they arise.

New City College student, Joanne Morgan said talks like these are ‘extremely valuable as it might be the only chance you have to pick someone’s brain and ask for advice to help you achieve your goals.’

Thank you to Lara Morgan for delivering a thought provoking speech and to New City College for being such excellent hosts.
