You’ve got to show up in life, you’ve got to show up for your parents, show up in business and show up for yourself.”“If you have natural talent, you just need to get on it. Whatever opportunities you can find, go for it. Never give up, believe in yourself, see it, believe it and you’ll live it.”When asked about his time in Nottingham David added:“Your weather here is so bad that it’s been easy for me to walk the streets because I’ve always got my head down in the rain so no-one recognises me, but when they do, the people are Nottingham are so sincere, I’ve loved meeting them.”He spoke to more than 300 students about his rise to stardom in Knight rider and global success with Baywatch, including the more difficult and enlightening times of his career.TV and Film BTEC student, Ashlea Carter, 16 from Arnold said: “It’s amazing that we got to meet David and listen to his experiences. He’s had such a varied career and to be able to hear from someone who has experienced so much in the industry was brilliant.”TV and Film BTEC student, Frazer Miller, 17 from Underwood added: “It’s really great that the Hoff came to ncn to speak to us, I remembered him from when I was younger, seeing him on Baywatch and Britain’s Got Talent, but to be able to speak to him himself and hear about what he’s achieved throughout his career was really inspiring.”New College Nottingham Head of Academy for Media, Film & Digital Technologies, Jonathan Laud said: “It’s been a brilliant experience for our students, to have someone of David Hasslehoff’s experience and status to come and speak to our students is a real coupe. Students thoroughly enjoyed his talk and interacting with him and have been really inspired by his talk. This has been a great way to kick-start our annual event known as ‘Jamcon’, which throws a spotlight on careers in the creative industries.”The event officially launched ‘jamcon’ - ncn’s creative careers conference, which begins on Monday 13 January and sees a week of guest speakers and workshops taking place at the college, to inspire students about the creative industries that they could be working in. ITV Central news is doing a segment about it tonight, Here's bit of the interview NCN facebook for more pictures here
