In an event that radiated inspiration and motivation, CEO of The Ascot Group, Andrew Scott, recently paid a visit to the Hans Price Academy secondary school. The purpose? To share his life and business journey, offering valuable insights and guidance to the budding minds of tomorrow. The event not only shed light on Andrew’s remarkable journey as CEO, but also highlighted the importance of fostering connections between the corporate world and the education system.
Sharing how he organically grew a multi-million-pound business in Weston-super-Mare, the students were able to see first-hand how their aspirations and dreams could translate into real-world success stories. Andrew’s journey from humble beginnings to the helm of a successful conglomerate resonated deeply with the students – highlighting the significance of determination, resilience, and an unwavering belief in oneself.
His visit helped remind the students that challenges are mere steppingstones on the path to success – a timely reminder as they work towards the final year of their exams. Feedback from the students was hugely positive, with one remarking later: “that was actually a useful thing to hear because it was real.” and another reflecting: “[I’ve] never really thought about some of those things, not being in Weston anyway.”.
Andrew comments: “It was a privilege to visit Hans Price Academy once again. Sharing my experience helped give rise to the importance of empathy, effective communication, and adaptability in a constantly evolving business landscape.
“In a world that thrives on innovation and continuous growth, interactions like these are crucial in nurturing the next generation of leaders, thinkers, and doers.
“I’m passionate about our local community and providing talented individuals the opportunity to grow and develop. It’s my hope that the young minds at Hans Price Academy can continue their academic pursuits with a renewed sense of purpose and an ignited passion to carve their own paths.”
