Started by former BBC (now ITV) Political Commentator, Robert Peston, Speakers for Schools is a UK charity launched in 2011 helping state schools inspire their students and broaden horizons through access to the insights, experiences and expertise of today’s leading figures through free talks and more — free of charge. His first event will be at Ruislip High School on December 16th.

Prior to his move to London, Andrew was Vice President of the Rotary Club of Sydney, Australia’s largest and most prestigious Rotary club from 2003 – 2004. He also sat on the board of the club from 2001 – 2005 and served as the Technology Director.

In 2006, he was awarded a Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Club of Sydney in recognition of his service to the club and the community. In 2002, he produced a promotional video for the club, which can be viewed below.
