“What you have all achieved is amazing. The Gold Award is a big tick box and it will open many doors. A lot of what happens in life is down to luck but we can also make our own luck. If you have an opportunity, take it. The harder you work at something, the more likely you are to achieve it.”

Queen Anne Room – NOAs

Presenter- Jim Rosenthal, Sports Presenter

“I completed my Gold Award in 1967 and received it from the Duke at Buckingham Palace. It’s a great honour to be asked to present the Awards today on the Duke’s 500th Gold Award Presentation. It’s a very competitive market out there and gaining a Gold award provides a great start. If you can achieve this now, it is saying that you can achieve things later in life. It’s a great tick in all your boxes. Congratulations to everyone.”
