Do your students sometimes lack motivation or have low aspirations? Or do you have a special event planned where a fresh face with great content and a track record could make a real difference in their studies? Lee can help…
“I got a B, and two D’s. I am very pleased with my results as I was predicted E’s and U’s….What kept me going was the techniques you taught me…I cannot thank you enough for the advice and help…your book and taught me that anything is possible if you put your mind to it and to get in the right state not a right state!” August 2012 (From a 6th form student Lee coached using the techniques and content from his talks and books)
‘In a nutshell’ for busy teachers and education staff…
‘How you can be the best you can be…’ a.k.a ‘How to enjoy and succeed at school and college’ a.k.a “How To Be Sick At School” is a motivational keynote talk and/or workshop on what successful people have in common and how young people can apply those principles today in school/college.
Ideal for ‘drop down’ days and sessions where motivation/raising aspirations is the aim.
(This content is usually delivered in a 40-60 minute keynote presentation for a year group and has an optional 40-60 minute workshop for a selected cohort or whole year group if needed.)
Also, Lee isn’t a one-hit-wonder! He likes to add value to his visits to schools, by leaving staff with follow-up materials to deepen the learning from his presentations. Your young people can also benefit from £££’s of resources including online videos, ebooks and his audiobook etc. to use after Lee has visited them! Just ask for more details.
Plus, make your budget go further and have lasting impact… all attendees to Lee’s talk below can now get a full downloadable copy of his audio book worth £9.99 per student (upon request).
“Lee is an innovative and inspiring speaker who quickly builds a rapport with his audience. His energetic and interactive approach keeps young people motivated and engaged at all times. Through clever use of media and humour Lee not only entertains but delivers a powerful and important message.” SD, Widening Participation Activities Manager, Leeds Metropolitan University
Lee has worked in education for over eighteen years. He has learnt over this time what makes young people tick and how we can inspire them to achieve more. Getting the best out of people has dominated his career, experience and study; and is at the core of all he does. Having spoken to young people in dozens of schools, prisons and youth groups, Lee brings all of his experience and solid research to his presentations and workshops. Lee is refreshing, insightful and practical – and uses success stories (and a few of his mishaps) to communicate clearly to young people, leaving them with practical take away action points.
His visual and funny multi-media presentations are a welcome break from scripted lectures and ‘death-by-powerpoint’. Where else can you learn from Neil Armstrong, Jay Sean and Susan Boyle in one presentation?!
“Lee’s presentation had the students more interested and engaged than I’d ever seen them before.” LP, Former Aimhigher Co-ordinator, The Community Science College @ Thornhill
Lee addresses self-esteem, confidence, motivation and ambition. He helps young people understand that how they look at themselves and others has a great effect on daily motivation and their long-term future.
It can be quite easy to get young people excited with a great presentation, but what happens the next day and the week after that? Lee understands that many people are asking “yes, we want to stay motivated, we want to achieve more, BUT HOW?”
So, Lee brings long-lasting insights and tools that go beyond the “buzz” of a good talk. During 2008/9 Lee worked closely with Carr Manor High School developing their Pupil Enrichment Programme days. Together they have succeeded in doing genuine cross-curriculum learning covering PSHCE, SRE, wellbeing, motivation, careers and citizenship in seven excellent days (plus staff training) with varied learning styles.
Lee’s vast experience helps him communicate to a wide range of young people including urban and suburban schools, adjusting his material and delivery to suit.
“Lee is able to do that rare thing in an inner city high school. He is able to challenge, reassure and amuse a potentially reluctant audience. It is through his ability to talk with conviction and with transparent honesty that draws the pupils and staff to listen carefully and reflect on the content and context…” SF, Headteacher, Carr Manor High School, Leeds
“Lee is undoubtedly a real agent for change and an asset to any learning situation…he is able to articulate in a dynamic, entertaining, provocative and imaginative manner.” Tony Simms – former chair of Leeds North East Aimhigher
