TAG Farnborough Airport hosted a Presentation Challenge for students from local schools on 29th November 2018. The event was organised by Ed2Biz who managed and facilitated the project in partnership with the team from TAG Farnborough Airport. Teams of Year 9 and 10 students from Ash Manor School, Calthorpe Park School, King’s International School and The Wavell School took part in this fantastic event.
The students attended a ‘Presentation Masterclass’ delivered by Brandon O’Reilly, CEO, TAG Farnborough Airport which gave them plenty of advice, hints and tips for giving a good presentation. All the students then had two weeks to prepare their own presentations which could be on any aspect of aviation. The range of subject matter covered everything from aviation crime and aviation conspiracy theories to the manufacturing rivalry and future of aviation.
Brandon, Elaine Turner and Bayley Rolfe from TAG Farnborough Airport judged the presentations and were really impressed by the high standard of delivery from each of the teams as well as the quality of the content of each presentation. “The standard across all the presentations was really high and better than many business presentations I’ve attended in the working environment. Well done to everyone who participated. Having had this experience, we hope that the students will now take the skills they have learnt and put them into practice when taking their next steps, whether that’s college, university or work” said Elaine Turner, Marketing & Events Manager, TAG Farnborough Airport.
As the standard was so high, there were two winners; Calthorpe Park School with ‘How is the Internet Transforming Aviation’ and The Wavell School with ‘Aviation Conspiracy Theories’.
