THE ACADEMIC SPEAKER
In addition to speaking for business, I am often called upon to speak at high schools, colleges and universities. Whether that be for teacher or students, I love being able to empower and inspire academic audiences on what success looks like and how to plan for it.

Some people say that you can’t speak to business and academic audiences. That is pure tosh.
I love speaking to both and have done so for over 20 years sharing similar messages to both students and to teachers in schools, colleges, universities and educational conferences across the UK, Middle East, Europe and Australia.

WHAT DO I SPEAK ABOUT
My main focus is on encouraging students and teachers about motivation and practical tools and strategies to be successful.
For students, I focus mainly on attainment and learning pathways.
For teachers, my speeches tend to focus on motivation and leadership.
Here are the two most popular keynotes I deliver.
SUCCESS ON YOUR TERMS (FOR STUDENTS)
What’s the point of school? How do I navigate my teen years? What does success actually mean to me?
This keynote focuses on getting students to realise the keys to success in learning and thriving at school. Getting students to think long about how they choose to learn and apply that knowledge to both their exams, their future learning and careers. Using a mix of storytelling and humour I take students on a journey to realise that they equally responsible as teachers and parents/guardians to do what is necessary to succeed in their chosen academic or vocational path. That they can make good choices and take responsibility for the bad ones too.
This is suitable for Exam Preparation, Study Skills Days or Career and Enterprise Days
LEAD FROM THE CENTRE
What does leadership mean to you? How does leadership sit alongside management?
This keynote takes teachers on a journey of effective school leadership.
Whole school leadership is not just about commands from the senior leadership team. Neither is it a wrestling match for those in middle management. Leadership is about all members of staff holding on to and shaping a shared vision regardless of who is in charge. This keynote uses models from nature and the world of business to demonstrate how leadership spreads from the centre out as opposed to trickling down a pyramid
