PROUD MOMENT: Dr Ian Murphy and some of the St George students with the William Webb Ellis trophy.

On Tuesday morning 60 St George's School students, families and staff were treated to their first business breakfast for 2016.

All Blacks and Black Caps medical director Dr Ian Murphy spoke about his roles with both teams and organisations.

St George's School headmaster Andrew Osmond said his presentation was positive, informative and "presented with energy and humour".

Dr Murphy talked about "finding your passion" and developing a talent through hard work; when you do this, then success is sure to follow.

"It was wonderful to hear Dr Ian Murphy's story at the breakfast. An unexpected arrival and star appearance was made by the William Webb Ellis Cup."

St George's School hosts the business breakfasts as part of its Young Business Enterprise Programme.

The programme connects and engages students with businesses, social groups and people in the community.

"Students learn from key people sharing their business ideas, advice, learnings, stories and visions.

"The Young Business Enterprise Programme is designed to encourage and develop a range of skills and values for students including innovation, critical thinking, entrepreneurial spirit, problem-solving, teamwork and confidence," said Mr Osmond.

The school has three breakfasts each year. Mr Osmond said speakers were always inspirational and pitched their words at students and parents, so everyone got something out of the talks.
