City College success story: Deborah Meaden 

Businesswoman and high-profile media personality Deborah Meaden studied Business at City College in 1976-77 and has said that the experiences and knowledge gained during her course have stayed with her throughout her exceptional career. Deborah started out with very little capital, launching her own glass and ceramics import company straight out of college. She later joined the panel of investors for the infamous ‘Dragons’ Den’ series and has since invested in a number of successful businesses across the UK. She’s certainly an inspiration for City College graduates.
