Speaking on behalf of the participating students, Ms Rachael Bartolo, from De La Salle College said “It was a motivating experience that has helped convince me to open up my own company once I complete my studies, which I will definitely open it up to students like myself today. I thank all the leaders who provided us with this unique opportunity.”

Michael Warrington, CEO of AX Group, responded positively to the call. “This is the first year we participated in L4D and was impressed by the level of entrepreneurial spirit presented by these young 16 year olds.” A sentiment reiterated by Mr Dan Robinson, Head of RBWM at HSBC Malta while thanking all the leaders who contributed to this initiative. “We need to support the active learning process of our youth more to help generate a better and more participative workforce in Malta”.
