Fantastic Opportunity for PEEK’s Emerging Leader Marcus!
Marcus, 15, is a graduate of PEEK’s Emerging Leaders Programme at St Andrews RC Secondary and has volunteered throughout our Create programme and performed in this year’s Youth Theatre production, ‘Listen’. Always busy, Marcus also attends theatre and guitar classes out with school. Knowing that Marcus is a keen performer, PEEK approached him about presenting the Thrive Awards and Celebration Evening 2017 in June and he jumped at the chance. On the night, he did a truly fantastic job and our guests commented on how amazing he was throughout and asked if he was a professional!
During the summer holidays, Marcus was approached by the Scottish Tourism Alliance, after a recommendation by Melodie, PEEK CEO, to host their annual Scottish Tourism Conference in March 2018. Marcus was unveiled at their Autumn Conference in October and will work with Steven Jardine, STV presenter, to develop his script and presenting skills before the conference event to over 700 delegates next year. Marcus said ‘I can’t thank PEEK enough for this amazing opportunity and for all of the support you have given me’. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity which could lead on to so many more opportunities for Marcus and we look forward to supporting him every step of the way. We are so proud of him.
