It was an exciting first day for all of the students attending the 2016 Money and Responsibility course at Cambridge University. Nick Hoffman opened the course with a lecture on the mathematics of money followed by facts about the power of compounding. The next lecture was from Dr. Jerry Toner who gave some brilliant advice on the ethics of how we should use our money. The final lecture was given by Nigel Wardle, who discussed his ideas about entrepreneurialism and how with failure one can still breed success. Following the lecture, all of the students gathered for our double-decker bus tour which took us to the only WWII American burial ground in England. This has already been an amazing time and we are all starting to connect as a group!
