CASH prizes and a chance to spend the day living the life of a top business executive were up for grabs at two schools.

Barnwell and Marriotts Schools in Stevenage were visited by businessmen and women in an event organised by the Hertfordshire Chamber of Commerce and Industry and the charity Uniqueness Limited.

The visitors told the students how they achieved success.

Three students at each school were rewarded with cash prizes at the end of the event for successfully answering questions.

One student from each school will also win a fantastic entrepreneur experience in London with Joanne Smith, founder and managing director of Consulting Consortium Ltd.

The winners, to be announced shortly, will be chauffer driven to and from London, kitted out in business attire at a London corporate retail outlet, taken to lunch and spend time shadowing Joanne and learning from her experiences.

John McBride, of the Herts Chamber of Commerce, said: "It was an inspiring event and each speaker demonstrated that there are many different routes to success but all require hard work and determination.
