David Dein visits Forest

On Monday 29 January, David Dein came to The Forest School to give an inspirational and motivational talk to selected Year 10 & 11 pupils. David is a former Vice-Chairman of the Football Association and of Arsenal FC and was the man who brought Arsene Wegner to Arsenal in 1996.  David spoke about how he helped to create the Premier League and emphasised the qualities needed to be successful in life: hard work, courage and having the right attitude.  He told our pupils that every year their New Year's resolution should be to be better than they were in the previous year.  The feedback from the boys was that his visit was an overwhelming success and they all took away his mantra of being like a turtle and not to be afraid to 'stick your head out' and be better than everyone else.
