ROLE MODEL EVENTS March 2019

I am blown away to have been invited to two Role Model Events by the charity Founders4Schools !

Event One : The first Role Model Event is being held for 150 students at Bridgwater College Academy on 8th March 2019.The event is from 8.15 am – 2.30pm and is being held at Bridgwater College Academy, Parkway, Bridgwater , Somerset TA6 4QY. It has been organised by Hannah Bradshaw  through working alongside Founders4Schools. What an amazing lady to have organised this event for students … I cannot wait for us all to work alongside each other.

 

I am to be one of four speakers where I will share with students and teachers my  personal and professional journey about my company which has grown quickly. This is very much a Role model Day based on equal opportunities and employability where ” business  leaders will share insights, lessons and tips to motivate and inspire 150 students aged 13 to 14 years old to make informed decisions about their future.”  I have a wealth of personal and professional experience to share regarding special abilities in the workplace just overflowing to be shared … I almost feel I need to warn everyone to take a deep breath because I have so much to share, not least how different abilities can be channelled into such positive attributes (and actually life skills too ), all leading to inclusion and fulfilling every potential of every child.

We will be sharing our stories about our career journeys, the subjects we studied and how these are relevant now, what inspired us to choose our career paths , our failures as well as our successes, what our companies do and why this is important along with what we enjoy the most about our careers.  I’m never going to stop talking !!!! Most of all I so look forward to hearing the other speakers and most importantly the students themselves.

Event Two: The second Role Model seminar is being held at Holyrood Academy, Zembard Lane,Chard, Somerset on 20th March 2019 when I shall be speaking along similar lines from 1.15pm-2.15pm. This event has been organised by Emma Higman for 150 students aged 17 to 18 years old. I shall be speaking about my journey and what inspired me to choose my career path … although sometimes I feel tht it chose me too !I am so looking forward to sharing what my company does and why it is so important. As for talking about what I enjoy most in my career ….. where do I start !

I am so overjoyed to have been personally scouted for these wonderful opportunites and to share such exciting events at the heart of all our futures : the children and young adults with a whole host of different abilities and strengths who will shape our world of tomorrow. It’s where it’s at for me  and I am bursting to bring real achievable possible hope to so many by sharing the incredible life and journey that I have had . I am on fire and literally cannot wait !!!!!

ADVANCED TRAINING NOVEMBER 2018 / ADHD, ASC & LD BELGIUM

It is truly an honour and joy to invited back once again to Brussels by Dr.Ed. Joanne Norris of ADHD,ASC & LD BELGIUM to give advanced trainings and talks over the weekend of 17th-18th November 2018.

I have absolutely loved delivering various conference talks and training programmes for this non- profit organisation in the past few years .  Those involved work tirelessly to bring so many resources , trainings and evidence-based information to English speaking families affected by ADHD, the autism spectrum , dyslexia, dyscalculia and dyspraxia so that the children and young adults with these different abilities can have the opportunity to achieve their full potential at school and be productive and included adults with full and balanced lives.  They also work extremely hard to reduce the stigma surrounding these special abilities and conditions and to enable these children to be heard and understood ….. people absolutely after my own heart !!!

I have met some incredible and dedicated parents, teachers, therapists ,speakers and other professionals, so many of whom have touched, inspired and added to my life and work each time I have been invited.  I truly cannot wait to be back there .

Details to be confirmed so watch this space ….
