Motivational speaker Andy Walker recently visited the college to speak to staff and students. Andy runs live your dream consultancy, working as a life coach and motivational speaker. At the age of 28 whilst in Goa, Andy suffered a life changing C4/C5 spinal cord injury whilst jumping into the sea. Andy gave students tips on setting goals, staying positive, overcoming obstacles and achieving ambitions. Andy has had to adapt to and deal with huge change in his life and the students could really feel the authenticity of his life advice.
