Future Entrepreneurs Inspired by Business Expert
City College Plymouth students have been learning the tricks of the trade from local businessman and entrepreneur Trevor Worth.
Trevor was approached by business student Edward Nettleship who arranged the talk for his fellow students to gain advice and guidance on the next steps in their careers.
Edward said: “I chose to approach Trevor because he is passionate about business and entrepreneurial spirit. I admire how committed he is to helping others and his ambition to mentor the next generation of business people.
“Trevor talked with real enthusiasm about his company and how he has become the businessman he is today. He gave us some great advice and answered all of our questions, which meant that we all left full of inspiration. His presentation really drove home that we should all have passion about what we do and work hard to meet our goals.”
Trevor Worth, who set-up his thriving law firm – Portcullis Legals – single-handily in 1988 came to the College to talk about his own career and advise the students on how to make it in the industry. He said: “As a former City College student I wanted to give back to the place where I found my passion for business and pass on a few pearls of wisdom to the next generation of business people and leaders. I feel it is incredibly important to speak to young people about the realities of the industry, and inspire them to get out there and start their careers.”
