His speech kick starts our annual event which throws a spotlight on careers in the creative industries - we can’t think of an artist who has had a more diverse and successful career covering a whole variety of creative careers, from actor, presenter, singer/songwriter, producer, theatre star and director. He’s been immortalised in cartoon animation and in videogames and his story is nothing short of fascinating. It’s a privilege to be welcoming him to ncn.”TV and Film BTEC ncn student, Sandra Tkacz, 19 from Aspley, added: “I’m very excited about meeting the ‘Hoff’, I’ve been looking forward to it for weeks. It’s amazing that he is coming to speak to us, I remember watching him when he was on Big Brother. I’m looking forward to hearing about his career and experience and how he got into the industry. I think it will motivate us all, I’m really looking forward to it.”
