Students shine ‘TED Talk’ event

Sixth Form students attend Reed Smith Mentoring ‘TED Talk’ event

On 9th January 2019, Auguste Daukseviciute, Deniz Gunes, Phoebe Ho, Joshua Jarrett, Murat Kesici and Emily Reding presented an idea or theory from their current A-Level subjects that inspires them in the style of a TED Talk.  This was done in front of invited guests, and 3 judges.   It was noted that the standard of presentations and professionalism was outstanding from all of our students as they discussed issues such as gender inequality, social & economic issues around inequality, Milgram’s experiment (1963) of behavioural control, non-verbal communication, conformity and the importance of being multi-lingual. 

Each student will receive a certificate of completion from Reed Smith/Brokerage Citylink, and although there could only be one winner in this competition, amongst two schools, each student will continue to be coached and given guidance by their mentor. 

Congratulations to Emily Reding, who was the unanimous winner amongst the judging panel for her insightful talk of the benefits of learning a new language.  She has won a week’s work experience with Reed Smith during the February half-term. 

Finally, big congratulations to everyone who participated, well done.
