Thank you so much for hosting this programme and taking time out of your schedules to make something which allows me to learn about Investec and the services you provide. It has been extremely helpful as it has allowed me to broaden my knowledge of how a company like Investec works and what job roles and opportunities presented.

I would like to say thank you for all the hard work you have put in, it was probably not easy to get all these guest speakers, or even to put up this whole operation, but you've done I hope you guys are very proud of yourselves for what you're doing as you're making the future of people like me, more understandable and you've helped me decide what I want to do in the future.

I am really grateful that you have taken your time out to create this programme because it has helped me get more knowledge about investment, banking and wealth management. Some of the things that were spoken about in this programme relate back to what I am learning in uni right now so it has helped me understand my uni module even better. So thank you for creating this programme.
