On Monday evening, Leconfield welcomed back Robert Marshall-Lee and Paul Sedgwick (L, 1991) to talk to the pupils about their time in Leconfield, and their careers since leaving College. Robert works as a Fund Manager for Newton Investment Management and Paul is the Deputy Ranger at Windsor Great Park, reporting directly to HRH The Duke of Edinburgh. They reminisced about their years as 'shack-mates' and Robert found his name on the Heads of House board.
Their talks were interesting and amusing and they passed on some important tips about working in their respective industries. They also highlighted how important it is that pupils look at the bigger picture in terms of their career and consider taking the path that may not give instant gratification in terms of salary or position, but might have long-term prospects or lead to ‘the dream job’. They stressed that as we work for over half of our lives, it is important to find the right career.
