Wings of Hope 'Back to School Day - Bridging the skills of today and tomorrow’

Having supported the work of Wings of Hope Children’s Charity for over a decade, Dulwich College is delighted to be hosting for this exciting inaugural charitable event aimed at ambitious young people, aged 15-21, who would not ordinarily have access to a personal network or connections, and at senior executives. The young people and the executives will spend the day back in school with ‘teachers’ who are renowned leaders in their fields. 

The ‘teachers’ and topics timetabled include:

  • Ten Lessons from Five British Prime Ministers 

Lord Butler, former Cabinet Secretary and Head of the Home Civil Service, and Chairman of Governors of Dulwich College

  • How Humans Should Live in a World of Machines - Google Deepmind
  • Fighting to Win - Anthony Joshua, Heavy-weight boxing champion
  • How to ask tough questions - BBC’s Justin Webb
  • How to survive the worst storms – Roz Savage MBE, who single-handedly rowed across 3 world oceans
  • Maximising your potential - Professor Lord Winston

Together with London Business School members of Wings of Hope are inviting senior executives from a variety of backgrounds to join the young participants to participate and network and share ideas. They include the Young President’s OrganisationFacebookJaguar LandRoverThe British Fashion Council, members of the House of Lords, and Founders Factory
