Presentation Masterclass 2018

30th November 2018 by TAG Farnborough Airport

TAG Farnborough Airport hosted a Presentation Challenge for students from local schools on 29 November.  The students, in Year 9 and 10, were from Ash Manor School, Calthorpe Park School, King’s International School and The Wavell School.

The students attended a ‘Presentation Masterclass’ delivered by Brandon O’Reilly, CEO, TAG Farnborough Airport which gave them plenty of advice, hints and tips for giving a good presentation.  All the students then had two weeks to prepare their own presentations which could be on any aspect of aviation.  The range of subject matter covered everything from aviation crime and aviation conspiracy theories to the manufacturing rivalry and future of aviation.

Brandon, Elaine Turner and Bayley Rolfe from TAG Farnborough Airport judged the presentations and were really impressed by the high standard of delivery from each of the teams as well as the quality of the content of each presentation.

“The standard across all the presentations was really high and better than many business presentations I’ve attended in the working environment.  Well done to everyone who participated.  Having had this experience, we hope that the students will now take the skills they have learnt and put them into practice when taking their next steps, whether that’s college, university or work” said Elaine Turner, Marketing & Events Manager, TAG Farnborough Airport.

As the standard was so high, there were two winners; Calthorpe Park School with ‘How is the Internet Transforming Aviation’ and The Wavell School with ‘Aviation Conspiracy Theories’.

26th November 2018 by TAG Farnborough Airport


Réshé Harrison, winner of the TAG Flying Scholarship 2018, was joined by TAG Farnborough Airport CEO, Brandon O’Reilly, at a Scholarship presentation ceremony and reception at Cutler’s Hall in London last week.  During the ceremony, The Court of The Honourable Company of Air Pilots presented Réshé with his scholarship certificate, formally marking his achievement.


On receiving his scholarship certificate, Réshé said, “The support of the Flying Scholarship has provided me with that vital stepping stone to go on to university to study Air Transport with Commercial Pilot Training and has ultimately given me the chance to make my dreams a reality.”


“Réshé has worked hard and overcome many challenges to get to this point and I am sure that he will benefit greatly from the tremendous experience he has gained from this scholarship. I am delighted that TAG Farnborough Airport is supporting this scheme as it is yet another way in which we can encourage local young people to get involved in the world of aviation,” commented Brandon O’Reilly.


Under the auspices of the Honourable Company of Air Pilots’ scholarship programme, TAG Farnborough Airport grants one young person a scholarship with the aim of supporting individuals who might otherwise not have the necessary resources to gain flying experience and ultimately achieve their PPL. Over the past 11 years, scholarship recipients have progressed to a variety of professional roles within the aviation industry.


The TAG Flying Scholarship 2019 is set to be launched in January next year.
