'I'm very business-minded and I always wanted to have my own business. I learned a lot about businesses and how to manage them through this course.
I particularly enjoyed the marketing unit; it helped me to see the various ways businesses can reach different target markets to expand.
Since studying Business at St Brendan's, I have become a supervisor at work and plan to go into Business Management, until I eventually own and run a business myself'
Robbie studied Business BTEC, IT and Uniformed Protective Services
After St Brendan’s I automatically got a contract with Bristol Rugby (now Bristol Bears Rugby). I then moved to Harlequins and won the English Premiership with them in the 2011-12 season. I also won a cap for Wales.
After my career in rugby, I wanted to start my own business, and I knew it was going to be in food, as it is my passion. My wife brought me a sausage maker at Christmas in 2008 - fast forward to today and I am now the co-founder of The Jolly Hog alongside my two brothers. I have taken what I learned at St Brendan's and in rugby into my business. Every day is different and I face the ups and downs of any business owner, but I really enjoy it.
Olly studied Business Studies, Art & Design, Theatre Studies and Psychology
