Leadership Week - A Visit From Andy

Andy WToday, 1st July, Andy Wilkinson, the visionary behind Trailblazer - a web browser that shows you where you’ve been on the World Wide Web, what you searched and where you should go next for research - came back to his first school, St Andrew's College, to talk to the students about what it takes to change the world. He talk about what people view as naughty, which we usually think of as destructiveness, but in a different way. He talked not about the bullies, that first come to mind, but the people through history who have changed civilisation by resisting the way people lived: Socrates, Galileo, Nelson Mandela- just to name a few. He also said that these people were labelled crazy, but (and I quote here), “The people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, will”.
