On Thursday the 7th of May, Varsity College Port Elizabeth hosted its annual Counsellors Forum. High School Counsellors and Life Orientation teachers around Port Elizabeth attended the event.

The event started off with a networking breakfast on the Port Elizabeth campus, followed by an insightful presentation from guest speaker Grant Driver - Grant has dedicated his life to facilitating the success of others and works in the areas of people engagement, personal branding, inspirational leadership, communication and building a legacy.

He is a sought after international speaker, strategy facilitator, workshop presenter and mentor and facilitates at over 100 international leadership, management and sales conferences annually.

Grant has made more than 40 appearances on local and international television and is a popular guest on international news and business channel CNBC Africa.

Grant’s talk was both inspiring and insightful. All who attended enjoyed it thoroughly and left more informed with regards to Understanding Generation Y and the impact of generational differences on the future of the workplace.

“The Counsellors Forum is a Varsity College initiative which offers High School Counsellors and Life Orientation teachers an exciting opportunity to learn, network and mingle with their peers” says Paul Manson, Varsity College Principal.
