Bromsgrove School was delighted to host an evening with Old Bromsgrovian, Lord Digby Jones of Birmingham Kt on 16th October.
Upper Sixth pupils had the additional bonus of a personal audience with Lord Jones before his Masterclass. The students heard his thoughts on many topics pertinent to the world of business and politics. His concerns about social media and the generation that are growing up with the impact of ‘instant gratification’ and FOMO, resonated with the group.
The Masterclass was superb - enlightening and, as ever, entertaining. Not everyone will agree with his thoughts on issues such as funding in the NHS, but by the end of the evening, his talk had been watched all around the world – one of the huge benefits of social media for our students and parents.
