Grant Davis

Grant chose not to pursue a career in the theatre but is convinced that his time studying Acting contributed to the skills and qualities he uses in his job with Haven Holidays. Working as an Events Co-ordinator , he arranges entertainment that ensures park residents have the best time possible.

“I enjoyed two very active and fun-filled years at Halesowen College, which increased my self-confidence and helped me to figure out what I wanted to do with my life. College taught me that if you work hard you can achieve your goals and I-m now happy to throw myself into different situations, which certainly helps in my line of work!”
