School Pupils ‘Get Real’ About Business Firsthand

A director of Loadhog, the Sheffield-based reusable packaging manufacturer, spent two hours explaining to a group of GCSE pupils how success in their studies can help them achieve in the ‘real’ business world.

The eleven 15 to 16-year-old pupils from King Ecgbert, due to take their French exams and considering opting for an A level in a modern foreign language, gained an insight into a company with international links.

It was Loadhog’s sales director, Frenchman Damien Montagne who outlined the company’s mission which focuses on reducing, recycling and reusing plastic in addition to facilitating transit. He presented Loadhog’s product range and stressed the importance of communication, not only in English but other languages, in order to establish and build positive business relationships and understand clients’ needs.

The pupils’ visit was the idea of Helen Smith, head of modern languages at the Sheffield secondary school, said: “After five years at the school this was an opportunity to get pupils interested in business and understand that communication is the key not only to bridging the gap between school and business but also to their future career.

“One pupil commented ‘We learnt so much in those two hours about careers and what skills we have now and will need in the future’. I would like to thank Loadhog and Damien for bringing our learning to life.
