"When I return to Bolton School to talk to pupils about entrepreneurship, my message is to 'go for it'. This is an attitude that I had instilled in me during my time at the school where my curiosity was fuelled and I became interested in ideas."

OBA Ambassadors

The OBA Committee plans to harness the enthusiasm and contacts of some of the younger Alumni in the run up to the Association’s 125th Anniversary, in 2020, by creating roles for a number of "Ambassadors". Their remit will be to raise the profile of the OBA within their peer group, and to plan an integral role in shaping the OBA as a vibrant business networking community. 

Old Boys Richard Washington (1986-1993), Irfan Ravat (1992-1999), Mike Shaw (1981-1988), Adam Syddall (1984-1998), Chris Eatough (Class of 1993) and Paul Wheatcroft (1988-1995) have already been recruited as Ambassadors by the Committee, who would be delighted to hear from any other Old Boys who would be interested in learning more about this role. Please contact the OBA Secretary, Jon Twist, via the Development Office, for more details.
