Dragons' Den Star pays visit to former school in West Midlands

Dragons' Den winner Neil Westwood from Magic Whiteboard yesterday, 28th February returned to his former secondary school, The Kingswinford School in the West Midlands. Neil was invited by business studies teacher Mrs Alex Griffiths to share his experiences of business and Dragons' Den.

The last time Neil was here was 23 years ago. Neil talked to students in assembly and did 4 other classroom sessions to inspire students about setting up a business. Students wanted to know what it is like working with Dragons' Den stars Theo Paphitis, owner of Ryman Stationery and Deborah Meaden.

It was a really fun day and Neil also met his old Physic teacher, Mr Davies and Geography teacher Mr Groves. They had not changed in 23 years.
