A former winner of BBC hit The Apprentice gave students his own hints and tips on how to get on in the workplace.

Lee McQueen, who got the nod from Lord Sugar in 2008, was at Loughborough College’s Employability Week.

He spent a day motivating students to stand out from the crowd in the world of work and passed on his career success do’s as well as the definite don’ts.

“To set out your goals and achieve them is incredibly rewarding. Today my passion is about helping others to realise their potential and provide them with a platform to go on and achieve,” said Mr McQueen.

Tina Smith, lecturer and foundation degree course manager at Loughborough College, said: “Every single student at Mr McQueen’s lectures and workshops went away inspired and buzzing with ideas on how to go about building their career or business.”

  1. It’s great that Lee is doing so much for the future of business as most high profile characters just like to focus on looking after number 1. I think it’s great what he’s doing with his Raw Talent Academy too; helping young people find a way into business.
