Olympic business guru at Writhlington - December 2012

A local business man took the time to speak to 124 year 11 Business Studies students on Monday 3rd December to discuss how he led the project team which successfully delivered the catering services to Athletes from around the world in the three Athlete Villages for the Olympic and Paralympic Games. Topics such as recruitment, distribution, supply, finance and logistics were introduced, alongside some interesting facts about the amount of food consumed by the athletes over the 6 week period. Did you know over 1.1 million bananas were consumed alongside 130 tonnes of cheese!

The students asked some probing questions at the end, including how he got involved in the industry, the finance and bidding process and the risks involved in such a huge operation. The students were also able to read tweets from athletes praising the service they received, including one from Lord Seb Coe.

Mr. Morton, KS5 Business Studies Manager at Writhlington School, said Its great when business people give up their time to talk to the students. It really brings ideas discussed in the classroom to life.
