Rising Above The Noise  – How To Stand out in a Digital World 

13 January 2017

Andrew Grill, Global Managing Partner, Social Consulting, IBM used his first Speakers for Schools talk at Ruislip High School to give Sixth Formers tips on standing out in a digital world.

The talk was designed to inspire the entire group of 6th formers on how they can get ahead in their careers using social, the power of their own social brand and what employers look for in graduates.

You can see Andrew’s talk here:

Feedback overheard at the end of the talk included:

  • “it was very engaging and linked to their future employment potential”
  • “highlights included Andrew’s discussion on the role of digital media and your ‘personal brand’ – they found it very interesting and a real eye-opener”
  • “the best talk from an external speaker talk yet!”
  • “the best talk of the year”


Our thanks to Andrew for providing the video of his talk and to Ruislip High School for being great hosts!
